Sorry, couldn’t resist the song! So catchy and is the only thing that has helped me learn how to spell bananas.
Banana Loaf is a bit of a cross between Banana Bread and drizzle cake. It is traditionally baked in a bread loaf tin, however the actual mixture is sweet and cakey. It is stodgy and moist which is perfect for the winter! It may not be the prettiest cake or get you many Instagram likes, but it is so delicious, easy to make, and goes perfectly with custard.
- 140g room temperature butter
- 150g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 150g self-raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 50g icing sugar
- Preheat the oven to 180C. Cream together the butter and sugar using an electric whisk.
- Add the two eggs, baking powder, mashed bananas and sift in the flour. Fold everything together until smooth.
3. Pour the mix into the loaf tin and cook for 45 mins or until a skewer comes out clean when poked inside. Mix together the 50g of icing sugar with 2-3tsp water and drizzle on top. Then serve!
What did I say? So simple to make! I know it isn’t the prettiest cake in the world but it’s so soft and moist and a favourite amongst the family! Let me know what you think in the comments below and let me know if there are any recipes you would like me to share!
