Banana Bread


At work tomorrow there is a welcome morning tea for a new staff member.  The big questions is what will I take??

I have been allowing a couple of bananas to become nice and black so this seems to be the ideal time to try out a new recipe for Banana Bread.  I saw the following recipe on a great baking blog The Cake Mistress.  http://thecakemistress.com/blog/

Banana Bread
2 Bananas, mashed
120 g Unsalted Butter
2 tablespoons Milk
1 teaspoon Bicarb Soda
1 cup Caster Sugar
2 Large Eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups Self Raising Flour


Directions:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a medium loaf tin with non-stick spray.

Place butter and mashed bananas into a saucepan and melt on low heat. Stir in the caster sugar, bicarb soda and milk until the sugar appears to have dissolved. Let the mixture cool to room temperature before stirring in the beaten eggs and flour.

Pour mixture into loaf tin and bake for 40-45 minutes. Cake is done when a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Serve warm or cool with butter.

Banana cake slices can be frozen and defrosted

I had to try it before I took it to work.  It’s delicious!
