I’m finding I need something that I can whip together in 10 minutes whilst holding a baby under one arm and wiping a toddler butt with the other. That something needs to be full of sugary goodness, so when I do finally collapse it’s there – waiting – a brief, peaceful moment when everyone stops and there is silence. Then the banana bread is finished and they’re off again, full steam ahead.
225g self-raising flour
100g butter – melted
150g soft brown sugar
3 soft bananas – mashed
Pre heat the oven to 180C and grease a 1 litre non-stick bread tin.
Beat all the ingredients, except the banana, until smooth, stir in the banana and pour into the bread tin.
Cook for 50 minutes or until you can stick a skewer into the middle of the bread and it comes out clean
Leave to cool for 15 minutes then remove the bread from the tin and leave to cook on a wire rack.
