Fabulous Banana Loaf

Hi Guys

You know, I was sitting having breakfast the other day and saw some sorry looking banana’s in the fruit bowl and they looked to be dying a slow and painful death, thus out popped the banana loaf… I have never made this before so didn’t know what to expect but it turned out to be yummy….


  • 140g Butter softened plus extra for the tin
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 2 large egg, beaten
  • 140g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Ripe bananas (mash two and keep one for decoration, you can also use dried banana if you wish)
  • Icing sugar to dust.


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter a loaf tin and line the base and sides with greaseproof paper.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add the eggs with a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour, baking powder and bananas. Pour into the tin and bake for about 30 mins until a skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove to a wire rack.
  3. I chopped some banana and laid it across the top and dusted with icing sugar.
  4. Serve with a nice fruit tea

Do give it a go, it took me about 45mins all in!!! Not bad, my friends think I’m turning into a right Mary Berry!! ha

Love Gxxx
