Delectable Banana Bread

As I delve further into the baking world I seem to come across more and more new and exciting things to try my hand at.

This week, it was a simple Banana Bread. Inspired by the "Despicable Me" Minions Banana Clip. So so cute.

Back to the cooking; this recipe is so so simple that I don't even need to give my usual description of my own experience. All the ingredients are popped in a mixer, poured into a loaf tin and baked for an hour. Voila!


Banana Bread

270g Dark Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 1/2 Bananas, the riper the better, mashed
280g Plain Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Bi-carb Soda
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
140g Butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 175 degreed celcius

2. Place sugar and eggs into a mixture on a medium speed. Beat until well mixed then add the banana.

3. Add flour, baking powder, bi-carb soda, cinnamon and ginger and beat well.

4. Pour in the melted butter and continue to mix until smooth.

5. Pour mixture into a loaf tin that has been lined with baking paper (or coated with cake release; my new kitchen love!)

6. Bake for approx 1 hour, until firm to touch and skewer comes out with few crumbs.

7. Leave to cool to room temperature in the tin, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Happy Baking!!!!.....

A little magic can take you a long way
