Banana loaf recipe


Hello! Here I am. It’s been a little while since my last blog post. The beginning of March was extremely busy with a big freelance project, and then the rest of March has disappeared in a flurry. I’m still a little daunted at how quick this year is going. I’ve got quite a few things I’ve wanted to blog about, but I’ve found that when I come to write, the page stays empty. It’s like I’ve got a brain block when it comes to getting my thoughts down, though I’m hoping this will pass soon. I hate leaving this little blog empty of new posts, so I thought I’d keep it nice and simple today and share a recipe.

If you scan my recipe archive, you’ll know that bananas feature a lot. We always seem to have some left over and I’ve tried plenty of recipes in the past to use them up – and admittedly, they all seem to involve chocolate. Considering it’s Easter this weekend, I thought we’d have plenty of that to munch on already, so I’ve kept this one simple with just plain banana. The recipe is originally from BBC goodfood, and you can find it here, though I’ve changed the recipe quite a bit after reading some of the comments. It created a beautifully moist, light banana cake and this one tops my list of all I’ve tried so far. Happy baking!


Recipe adapted from BBC goodfood
Pre-heat oven to 160C
2 eggs
90g caster sugar
175g SR flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 mashed bananas
Line a 2lb loaf tin, Cream butter and sugar together, then slowly add the eggs and a little flour. Fold in the rest of the flour, baking powder and bananas. Pour into the tin, bake for 50-60 mins, until a skewer comes out clean.


  1. Sounds super yummy! :) I used to hate bananas when I was younger but now I'm obsessed with them, they're so delicious. Have a wonderful easter weekend x

    1. Thank you so much Sara! You too! x

  2. This looks so nice! I struggle to get through all the bananas too so I'll definitely save this and try it next time I get chance to bake :)
