Hope you enjoy the recipe!

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:

Materials

  • A fork and spatula
  • Scales
  • Saucer/Pot
  • A bowl
  • A loaf tin
  • Tissue

Ingredients

  • 125g of butter
  • 150g of caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 or more very ripe bananas
  • 190g of self raising flour
  • 60ml of milk
  • 1 egg

OR

  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 3/4 cup of caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 or more very ripe bananas
  • 1 and 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoon of flour
  • 60ml of milk
  • 1 egg

Step 2: Loaf Tin

Grease your loaf tin. I used some butter on a tissue but you can use greaseproof paper, a bit of olive oil etc.

Something like this is perfect:

Step 3: Bananas

Mush your bananas with a fork in a bowl. This should be fairly easy because they are very ripe. It is better to use very ripe bananas because it accentuates the banana(ery) flavour!

Step 4: Melt...melt..melt

Add your sugar, butter and vanilla extract into a saucepan/pot. Melt it under a medium heat, it should bubble and melt away. Make sure everything is melted. Once it has melted, take it off the heat.

Step 5: Mix...mix...mix

Add your melted butter, sugar and vanilla into the bowl of mashed bananas. Mix well, then add in the egg. Mix, and then add in the flour. Mix well. Yes, it looks disgusting but trust me it is delicious!

Step 6: Nearly Done!

The mixture shold look something like this. Transfer it to your loaf tin and place it in the oven at 170 C / Fan 150 C / Gas 3 or 340 F for 35 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool and enjoy!

    Sorry my scales have broke but my daughter really wants to make banana bread. I have teaspoons, tablespoons and cups but what sort of cup do you mean by cup it is so much easier for me if it’s in teaspoons and tablespoons or let me know what size cup 🤦🏼‍♀️ I hate not having my scales but can’t get any till payday

    Here in the US we don't measure butter, sugar or flour by mass (weight); any chance of conversion to volume measurements - if not tablespoons, cups, etc., even mL would be easier to convert.

    Measuring with a scale is so much easier and accurate. 190 grams is always 190 grams, but a cup is different, due to 'different filling methods'.
