Easy Banana Bread


I love Banana Bread with cream cheese frosting on top!!!   I have used this recipe for a while and I alternate it a bit from time to time when I want something different.  This is a very easy banana bread to make.  It is very fluffy, nice and moist.  It keeps fresh for about a week in an air tight container.

I usually bake 2 loaves/tins to take room up in the oven.    Double the ingredients to make 2 lots.

Banana Bread
  • 1.5C of self raising flour
  • pinch of baking powder
  • 1 TSP of bicarb soda
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 3 medium sized ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/2 cup of canola/vegetable oil (use any)
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • handful of chopped almonds
  • 1/2 TSP of vanilla essence

Method
- preheat oven at 150C
- First grease a ring tin or a loaf tin
- sift all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl
- make a well in the centre and add all wet ingredients
- mix the ingredients together until smooth batter like consistency
- pour the mixture into the tin/s
- bake for 1 hour.  check if done by poking the loaf with skewer.  if it comes out clean then the cake should be done.  I usually bake for another 10 minutes just to make sure.
- cool for half an hour, cut and enjoy!!

Tip:  You can vary this  banana bread but adding your own ingredients in it like different kind of nuts or even chocolate chips, honey etc
