Ingredients
  • 2 browning medium bananas, peeled and mashed with a fork
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 130g self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 55g butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 100g caster sugar
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease a loaf tin, about 22cm x 12cm in size, with butter.

  • In a large bowl, mix everything together, combining well with a fork. You may need to add a drop of milk to achieve a loose dropping consistency, depending on how mushy the banana is.

  • Pour into the tin and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin then turn onto a wire rack. Serve with warm custard or slice for teatime.
