Banana Bread

I told y’all I baked banana bread! Bananas are one of the few things that are equally as good in death as in life. In life they are a delicious snack that comes in its own convenient packaging. In mushy death they are perfect for smoothies and baking.


It looks like a cake because I left my loaf tin at work, which is weird because we don’t have an oven there. I looked at a few recipes and came up with this delicious hybrid.

You will need:

3 overripe bananas
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1 cup of sugar
2 cups self raising flour
2 eggs
About 100g of butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat over to 180 degrees celsius.

Grease and line a loaf tin. Mash the bananas in a bowl, add the maple syrup and stir in the sugar. Add the eggs, sifted flour, cinnamon, baking powder and butter and combine into a gluggy mixture.

Bake for about 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.



Eat warm with a giant cup of tea. My housemate and I did so while listening to Ella Fitzgerald. So romantic.
