It’s amazing how whenever you are really and truly bored you always tend to make your way into the kitchen. You open and close the fridge constantly hoping that each time you do it the contents would magically change into something you feel like eating but alas it doesn’t and that frustrates you even more.
This is exactly what I found myself doing yesterday. After a number of failed fridge attempts I stumbled onto the fruit basket (which is of course always the last place you want to find yourself) and found a few over ripe bananas (grown in our garden I must add)
I decided to make banana loafs; now these have always been a firm favourite in our household but i have never actually made them on my own.
I pulled out mum’s old faithful recipe book and off we went.
It’s honestly one of the simplest recipes I have done in a very long time.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 very ripe bananas
Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Grease a loaf pan
Mash bananas and add flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and egg. Mix well. Pour into loaf pan.
Bake at 175 degrees C for 50 to 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into centre of cake comes out clean.
An hour later the most amazingly soft and fluffy banana loafs we on their way out of the oven.
Honestly if you are bored and have these ingredients lying around it’s so tasty and easy to make!
