The ubiquitous lockdown banana 🍌bread

If you don’t make banana 🍌 bread during lockdown then it will be like you have not lived through a lockdown; it has got to be done if you are not too busy keeping your country going!

They only take 35minutes in the oven!

So far I have made 3.

The first had too much bicarbonate in so did not taste that good. Learnt lesson and 2nd was better. The first slice I ate with homegrown steed rhubarb compote which is basically just rhubarb and sugar mushed down in the oven! See Instagram Wonderwall360 for picture from Easter weekend.

The basic recipe I’m going with which is based on Lucy Locket’s recipe is:

The ingredients

140g self raising flour ………………………………..140g sugar (so far I used caster but I want to try brown sugar)…………………………………………….. 2 eggs 🥚…………………………………………………………. Max 1 tsp of bicarbonate……………………………….2 sort of medium bananas 🍌 or 1 if only got 1 and it will just alter taste a bit, or three small etc………………………………………………………….. Butter Lucy’s recipe says 140g but I have found can used less; not been measuring it. Ideally not straight from fridge so mixes better but I have got a way with having lumps of butter in when out cake in the oven)

You mix all together. Dry ingredients first then butter and banana 🍌 in any order. You mush / mash the bannna to get it to incorporate into mixture. You may want to say few slices to place on top to decorate. Put in tin. Into oven and with quantities above should be ready in 35minutes.

To repeat it is simple, quick and forgiving recipe which is what is needed in lockdown. Today I used all flour I had which was only about 100g. Also all caster sugar so topped up with bit of icing sugar. I accidentally cracked 3 eggs 🥚 directly into the mixture. If I had, had more flour, I would have added to balance it out. Instead found some oats and put those in. I also decided to add flakes almonds and mixed peel. As well as into the mixture, once I had put into the tin I put almonds on top as decoration. The mixed peel had mainly sunk to the bottom once I gad cooked, so was a tasty orange 🍊 layer. Of course load’s texture was increased by oats and almonds. See Instagram Wonderwall360 for picture.

The future 🍌 banana loaf

I would like to try with brown sugar and ground ginger as Elsie LMC has done.
