Great to make whenever there are over-ripe bananas.
It's wonderful for breakfast with scrambled eggs or sliced with butter and eaten with the afternoon cup of tea.
3.5 cups of organic unbleached flour
1 tsp bicarb
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1.5 cups sugar
185g softened butter
3 organic eggs (beaten)
2 Tbsp lime juice (or lemon if n/a)
about 3 cups mashed bananas
3/4 cup chopped nuts or seeds (linseeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts etc.) OPTIONAL
3/4 cup sultanas (optional)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 190 degrees celcius & grease 2 loaf tins. In a separate mixing bowl, sift flour, bicarb, salt & baking powder together. In the mixer, beat sugar and butter together until pale, add eggs gradually. Add flour mixture & remaining ingredients. Mix well. Spoon evenly into tins and bake for 40-45 mins on mid shelf. Turn out to cool on racks. Freeze one loaf if need be. You'll never look back...
Where possible, try using organic ingredients to ensure complete chemical free banana bread.
