Brings back memories from school. I found this banana bread recipe the other day from an old cookbook and it was delicious.
250g plain (all-purpose) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
125g (4 1/2 oz) unsalted butter, softened
4 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
250g caster (superfine) sugar
175g good-quality dark or milk chocolate chips
1. Heat the oven to 180°C (350°F). In a large bowl sift the baking powder and flour.
2. Using another bowl, Mix together the butter, sugar, banana, eggs, vanilla extract and choccy chips in. Add to the dry ingredients and stir well but be careful that you don’t over mix.
3. Pour the bread batter into a non-stick 19 x 11 cm loaf tin and bake in the oven for around 1 hr 15 mins.
4. Leave the bread to cool in the tin for around 5 mins. Then leave on a wire rack to cool further. Serve with butter.
