Banana Loaf

Banana Loaf/bread is my husband’s favourite! He loves it warm with lots of fresh custard. 

Here’s the recipe I used to make his favourite cake:


225g self raising flour

110g butter

110g caster sugar

3 bananas

2 eggs

1 tsp cinnamon 

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda


  • Cream together the butter and sugar

  • Add the eggs and mix again. 

  • Mash the bananas in a separate bowl. 

  • Add the mash banana to the butter and egg mixture and stir with a spatula. 

  • The mixture may look curdled when the banana is mixed in, but it will be fine once the flour is added. 

  • Sieve and fold in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon. 

  • Pour into a loaf tin lined with a loaf case or grease and line the loaf tin. 

Bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees/gas mark four. 

Enjoy your loaf with some custard or cream!!!
