Banana Bread

Life is fairly rosy post essay hand in last week. I am totally ignoring how dauntingly close finals are and throwing myself into a spot of baking this week. What's new?! I have three birthdays coming up and therefore there is much baking to be done. Potassium is needed in my life today after last night...Banana bread is clearly in order. 

Moist and soooooo good! Banana bread is ideal for many occasions; afternoon tea, pudding served with ice cream, essential hangover treat (high levels of potassium) or just pure indulgence. If you have a few old bananas that are beyond consumption as a normal banana, put them to good use! 

You can customise your banana bread with added extras as you wish. You can go for the simple banana bread or you can add in some chocolate chunks, sultanas or walnuts; it's entirely up to you...

Serves 10
Pre-heat oven to 180°C
Bake to perfection for 35minutes

You will need the following:
250g Butter
250g Self Rasining Flour
250g Brown Sugar
4 Bananas
4 Eggs
50g Sultanas/ Chocolate Chunks/ Walnuts (optional)

Measure out the Butter and Sugar

Mix together

Add in the Eggs, one at a time

Next, add the Self Raising Flour

Mash the bananas in a separate bowl and add to the mixture
Today I also added chocolate chips & sultanas

Pour the mixture into a loaf tin and bake to perfection for 35minutes.
Until it looks like this...

Good old fashioned advice: Use a wooden kebab skewer to poke into your cake. If it comes out with raw cake mixture on it, it needs longer. When it comes out clean you know your cake it cooked to perfection.
