This is the best way i know to use up those yucky brown bananas that you didnt get round to eating, and transforms them into nom nom treats.
This is a really nice and quick treat to whip up, so lets get baking :D
Step 1: Step 1
2 - Sift 8 oz of Self Rising Flour into a bowl, add 4oz butter, 5oz caster sugar and blend together ideally with an electric hand whisk
3 - In a separate bowl, peal and mash with a fork 1lb of brown bananas (browner the better as they are sweeter)
4 - add the banana to the bowl of flour, butter and sugar, and mix well together
Step 2: Step 2
Tip - You can pretty much add anything to this mix, i chose a selection of almonds, macadamia nuts, and some dried fruit i had left over from previous baking sessions. If you prefere just add nuts / fruit. Experiement to see what works best for you, thats half the fun :D
Step 3: Step 3
- Bake for 90 minutes
Step 4: Step 4
- Once your bread has been in the oven for 90minutes it should be golden brown in appearance and well risen (as long as you kept the oven door closed), remove from the oven.
- Cool on a wire rack, remove from tin after 15mintues.
- Slice and serve warm, or keep in an air tight box and consume within 4 days.
