All to often, my kitchen is left with too many banana about to go off all because I bought them with the intention of being healthy and well… forgot about them. You can’t imagine how many banana loaves I have made as a result of this. Well, at least no bananas have gone to waste. The benefit of this for me anyway, is that I have time and time again developed the perfect caramelised banana loaf recipe. I love great food and I can guarantee you that this loaf is a piece of heaven itself!
The taste, the fragrance, the texture, I can taste a slice as I type this up. Yes, its safe to say that this loaf finished an hour after I baked it. This loaf is a winner!
Serve over breakfast with a cup of tea or coffee or after dinner with some custard or cream.
Thank me later!
- 3 Bananas mashed
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 & 1/2 cup Self-raising Flour sifted
- 1/2 cup Honey runny
- Pinch Salt
- 3 Eggs lightly whisked
- 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 cup Light oil or Butter
1. Pre-heat oven at 180°C. Add sugar, honey and oil to a large bowl and whisk lightly to combine.
Gradually add the eggs, flour, cinnamon, salt, bananas and vanilla extract as you whisk.
Once well combined (without lumps), bake at 180°C for 30 – 40 minutes. Check that the loaf is done baking by placing a skewer in the loaf – if it comes out clean, the load is ready. If not, continue to bake until the skewer comes out clean.
Once done, leave to cool then serve.
