Hilary’s Banana Bread

Here 's the first of what I hope to be the first of many recipes from the #1PMChat crowd.

Make it and let us know what you think!

Softened butter to grease

150g Plain flour

150g Whole Wheat flour

1 tsp Baking powder

½ tsp Baking soda

½ tsp Fine salt

170g Golden castor sugar (Can use normal sugar, but the golden castor sugar gives a better taste)

75ml Vegetable oil

2 Large eggs

150ml Milk

1 tsp Vanilla extract

3 Large, or 4 medium, very ripe bananas

  1. Preheat oven to 160C Fan/Gas 4

  2. Butter and line 2 x 1 litre loaf tins. I use silicon loaf tins which I grease but do not line

  3. Mix all dry ingredients together

  4. Mix all wet ingredients except bananas together

  5. Mash bananas well and combine with wet ingredients

  6. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Do not over mix

  7. Divide equally between tins

  8. Bake for 45 minutes. If you use a single 2 litre tin, bake for 1 hour

  9. Let it cool for 10 minutes before turning onto a rack.


The loaves will freeze very well. Wrap in greaseproof paper first.

Thank you Hilary!!
