Banana Bread

I'm not the biggest fan of bananas but I always buy them in the hope of being healthy and eating them as a snack instead of cake or chocolate. However, they always end up sitting there for too long and becoming overly ripe. So I decided this time, instead of chucking them away I would make some banana bread. My first attempt was just using a basic cake recipe with 2 banana's, however I adapted this recipe by adding less sugar but 1 more banana, and increasing the flour.  I also added chocolate chips to this recipe to add a little surprise. It turned out beautifully, very soft and light and a bit too moreish! 




Recipe

140g softened butter
90g caster sugar
180g self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
3 mashed bananas

Method

Firstly, preheat the oven to about 150'c fan. Whisk together the butter and sugar until light and creamy.




After this, mix in the eggs. Then slowly fold in the flour, baking powder and then the mashed bananas. 

Pour this mixture into a loaf tin that has been greased and prepared with baking powder. Bake for about 40-50 minutes until a skewer comes out clean and it is golden brown on top.





Enjoy!
