I’ve never actually baked banana bread before until the other night. There were a couple of overripe bananas in the fruit bowl that I was just about to throw away when I realised I had all the ingredients for banana bread. I found this super easy, healthy-ish recipe on this blog. It’s a one-bowl recipe – my favourite.
1 ½ cups mashed very ripe banana (about 3 medium bananas)
2 ½ cups flour
1 ¼ cups brown sugar
2/3 cup plain yoghurt
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients together in pour into a greased loaf tin. Bake in a 180C oven for about 50 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick or knife comes out clean.
You’re supposed to let it cool before eating but I was hungry and it smelled so good, so I cut it into thick slices while still hot and smothered them with salted butter. Delish!
