I felt the need today, so I baked this tried and tested Banana Bread. Baby helped (well threw stuff around the kitchen, whilst watching me). This recipe is quick and easy, so I thought I would share it with you all.
What you will need
1 tsp white wine or cider vinegar
250g bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
110g unsalted butter
195g caster sugar
250g mashed banana (about 3)
75g of choc chips (but I used the packet which was 100g)
What you do
Preheat oven to 180º/gas 4. Combine milk and vinegar in bowl and leave for 10 minutes. Butter and flour a 23xm x 10cm, 7cm deep loaf pan.
Sift flour, bicarb and salt together in large bowl. In another bowl cream butter and sugar, until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs one by one mixing well after each. Fold in the mashed banana and choc chips. Then add the sifted dry ingredients and the milk mixture alternately until well mixed.
Pour into tin and bake for 50-60 minutes. In my oven it’s done after 50 minutes. Make sure a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then on a rack.
Then scoff with a cup of tea!
