    Brilliant banana loaf recipe

    A cross between banana bread and a drizzle cake, this easy banana loaf recipe is a quick bake that can be frozen. It’s great for using up overripe bananas, too.


    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
    50g icing sugar
    handful dried banana chips, for decoration


    STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.

    STEP 2

    Butter a 2lb loaf tin and line the base and sides with baking parchment.

    STEP 3

    Cream 140g softened butter and 140g caster sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add 2 beaten large eggs with a little of the 140g flour.

    STEP 4

    Fold in the remaining flour, 1 tsp baking powder and 2 mashed bananas.

    STEP 5

    Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for about 50 mins, or until cooked through. Check the loaf at 5-min intervals by testing it with a skewer (it should be able to be inserted and removed cleanly), as the time may vary depending on the shape of your loaf tin.

    STEP 6

    Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove to a wire rack.

    STEP 7

    Mix 50g icing sugar with 2-3 tsp water to make a runny icing.

    STEP 8

    Drizzle the icing across the top of the cake and decorate with a handful of banana chips.
