Home Made Banana Bread

Y’all I have been addicted to eating banana bread with my afternoon cuppa and today I decided to bake my own and stop sending money on store bought ones! Baby cub got her 2 month injections this morning so after screaming the doctors surgery down she is now passed out, so what better time to quickly make some!

I used to bake all the time with my gran, and she used to always say make sure you organize yourself first before baking. So that’s exactly what I did, I took time to set everything up, and lay it all out just to make it easier and obviously make sure I have the correct ingredients.

So what ingredients are needed?!

  • 2 or 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 large beaten egg
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract

I also added in a cup of crushed walnuts and coconut flakes

And how I did it…

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and butter bread loaf pan (don’t want it sticking)
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir in the butter
  3. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour
  4. Pour everything into your buttered loaf pan
  5. Bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until you put in a knife and it comes out clean

  1. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for a couple of minutes

  1. Remove from pan and let it cool completely before serving!
  2. ENJOY – mine tasted DELICIOUS!
