Easy to make banana loaf recipe

Published

banana loaf

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.

Ingredients

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

Method

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.
