Introduction: Frugal Food: Banana Bread
Banana bread is one of the most simple and delicious cakes around. It doesn't require any outrageous ingredients and is a great way to use up your old bananas instead of throwing them out.
The ingredients you require are:
2 overripe bananas
1 and 3/4 cups of self-raising flour
1/4 cup of plain flour
2/3 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 cup of skim milk
50g of softened butter
Step 1: Step One
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl, sift the flours and the cinnamon.
Add the sugar.
Make a well in the middle, and add the eggs, milk and butter.
On a plate, mash the bananas and add to the bowl. Mix until all ingredients are combined.
Step 2: Step Two
Pour the batter into your cake tin and bake for 40-50 minutes or until the top is golden and a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the cake.
Turn out onto a cooling rack and serve once it's cool to touch.
Note: You can also add other ingredients to this recipe such as walnuts, dates or pumpkin seeds if you have them on hand.
