The other night I was walking through the kitchen when I did a double take. There perched on the top of the fruit bowl were 3 brown bananas! Now I don’t know about you but only one thing comes to mind when I see brown bananas… Banana bread!
The only thing that I have changed about this recipe is I used 3 bananas instead of 4. The recipe can be found here on the BBC good food website.
To make this you will need:
- 3/4 Ripe bananas
- 250g gluten free plain flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons or bicarbonate soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- 180g light muscovado sugar
- 75g unsalted butter, melted
- 2 large eggs
Pre-heat the oven to 180c or gas mark4 (gas mark 5 if you have an oven like mine!).
Melt the butter in a bowl and put to the side.
Mash the bananas together in a large bowl. Then add the sugar, eggs and melted butter and whisk together.
Then sieve in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon and fold in.
Once the mixture is combined pour into a lined/greased loaf tin and bake in the oven for around an hour.
After about 45 minutes you may wish to cover the loaf with some foil as it may start to catch on the top.
Yet again I have produced another ‘Rustic” bake! But I can honestly say that it tastes amazing.
Let me know if you attempt this bake. It’s perfect to sit down with a cup of tea and a slice of banana bread.
I am definitely going to make this again and think it would benefit from a salted caramel drizzled over the top! (Click here for my post on making caramel)
