Banana bread

Updated: Dec 31, 2019

I am forever the owner of bananas that go just that little bit ripe. Do not fear, I have this great banana bread recipe to the rescue! So simple and delicious. Pan toasted with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream on top, oh so delightful!

Toasty and delicious!
Banana bread with french vanilla ice cream

Makes 1 loaf


140g butter, softened, plus extra

for the tin

140g caster sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

140g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 very ripe bananas, mashed

1⁄2 cup of walnuts

50g icing sugar


To make the banana bread, start by heating oven to 180°C fan. Butter a 2lb

loaf tin and line the base and sides with baking parchment.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add the eggs

with a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour, baking powder and bananas.

Lastly adding the walnuts to the mix. Pour into the tin and bake for

about 30-40 mins until a skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10

mins, then remove to a wire rack to cool.

Slice and pan toast banana bread with a knob of butter, sprinkle with some icing sugar (optional) and finish with your favourite french vanilla ice cream!
