Banana Loaf Recipe
A quick banana loaf recipe that takes less time to prepare than your average YouTube makeup tutorial, but longer than a Laura Lee apology video - about eight minutes.
- 2 Ripe Bananas
- 140 g Unsalted Butter
- 140 g Caster Sugar
- 140 g Self-raising Flour
- 2 Large Eggs Beaten
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 50 g Icing Sugar
- 50 g Pecans Optional, can be used as decoration
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
Butter a loaf tin and line with parchment paper.
Add your butter and caster sugar to your food processor and blend until light and fluffy. Whisk both of your eggs and add them to your mixture and blend again.
Add your flour, baking powder and bananas and blend.
Pour into your loaf tin and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before removing and resting on a wire rack.
Mix your icing sugar with a teaspoon of water to make a running icing.
Drizzle your cake with the icing sugar mixture and then decorate with some pecans.
