Buttery with caramel undertones this Easy Banana Bread recipe is one of my family's favourite baking recipes and my go to.
Preheat your oven to 170 C/325 F/Gas Mark 3
Place 2 eggs and 225 grams of sugar in a mixing bowl or your free standing mixer. Using a hand held electric whisk or your mixer beat together for a couple of minutes.
Add the mashed bananas and mix again for 30 seconds or so.
Add 225 grams plain flour, 1 level tsp of bicarbonate of soda, 1 level tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of ground cinnamon, and mix again until all is incorporated and smooth.
Add 120 grams of melted butter and slowly beat in. Be careful as the butter can shoot everywhere at first. Speed up your mixing when the butter is mostly mixed in and mix until completely combined.
Tip into a lined 2lb loaf tin.
Bake for 1 hour. It usually cracks open along the centre a little leaving a craggy dome on top of the cake.
Leave to cool in the tin. I test it with a cocktail stick to see if there is any wet mixture left on it when I skewer it right in the thickest part. I also carefully press the centre of the cake. If it is firm to the touch that tells you it’s baked too.
