Now I thought I didn’t like banana bread until I tasted this one! It’s a very handy snack to have in the press – great with a bit of butter on it and a cup of tea. I have even started buying bananas on the turn so that I will find myself having to make some more! – it’s easy and cheap as chips to make and keeps for ages or can be sliced and frozen. Yommers!.
3 very ripe bananas
6 oz caster sugar
8 oz plain flour
1 tsp bicarb of soda
pinch of salt
2 oz walnuts or almonds, chopped
Handful raisins or sultanas
A few chopped cherries
Mash bananas in a large bowl and gradually work in beaten eggs, sugar, sieved flour, salt and soda. Stir in the nuts, fruit and cherries.
Grease a 2lb (or 2 x 1lb) loaf tin. Place the mixture in the tin(s) and bake for approx. one hour 325oF/170oC.
