When I first moved out of my parents’ home in my early twenties, mom provided me with a little handwritten book containing recipes of things that I enjoyed and might enjoy making now that I was on my own. This happens to be her super awesome banana loaf recipe:
- 130ml margarine
- 250ml brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3-4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 500ml flour
- 10ml baking powder
- 5ml bicarbonate of soda mixed with 80ml water
- 100ml nuts, chopped (optional)
- 5ml cinnamon
Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy.
Beat in eggs one at a time, add bananas and mix well.
Add flour and baking powder, alternating with bicarbonate of soda and water, to obtain a soft dropping consistency.
Add nuts and cinnamon. Mix well.
Pour into a greased 22cm x 17cm loaf pan lined with paper towel. Cook on Medium for 10-12 minutes.
There. Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it?
