I found this recipe online a few years ago and it is simply one of my favourites! I did reduce the sugar measurement from 175gms to just 100gms as I found it was too sweet for me.
225 gms self raising flour
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
a pinch of salt
75 gms butter
100 gms Caster sugar
2 medium eggs, beaten
450 gms bananas weighed with skin (peeled and mashed)
100 gms walnuts, chopped
1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line the base of a 1kg loaf tin.
2. Mix together flour, bi-carb and salt.
3. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, add the eggs a little at a time alternately with the flour.
4. Stir in the remaining flour, bananas and walnuts and place in a prepared tin. Bake for about 1 and a quarter hours.
5. Cool on a wire rack.
…and for those cheeky days, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce!! Enjoy!!
