Banana Bread

Cleaning out the fridge over the weekend, I found some eggs and buttermilk that were just about at their use by date, and some squishy bananas. Banana bread time!!

This makes one of those loaves of banana bread that you can slice and it looks like those things that you pay a fortune for in fancy cafes with your takeaway coffee in the morning. Save yourself a few dollars each day and make this instead.

2 mashed bananas
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons melted butter
¼ cup honey or golden syrup
1 ½ cups plain flour
1 cup self raising flour
2 teaspoons mixed spice
1 teaspoon bicarb soda

Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line a loaf pan, leave the baking paper hanging over the long edges of the pan. Mix the banana, sugar, buttermilk, eggs, butter and honey in a large bowl. Sift in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into the loaf pan. Bake for about 55 minutes, stand in tin for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.

It’s good fresh and warm from the oven, or with butter, or toasted. (I would have included a photo of a slice of this, slathered in butter, but I ate it before I could take a picture, sorry)
