An Easy Banana Bread Recipe

When it comes to snacks I am always one to grab the share bag of chocolate, but more recently I have been loving baking at home and having homemade snacks available whenever I want them. One of my favourites recently has been banana bread. Honestly, before now I hadn't even tried banana bread, but after discovering Mary Berry's recipe and knowing fine well I would love it - I had to try it!

This recipe is pretty simple and for someone new to baking like myself, I feel it would suit any beginner. It takes around 1 hour to bake with an additional 10-15 minutes on top to prep and mix everything and in the end it comes out so deliciously moist - you will find you want to come back for more.

100g butter, softened (as well as some additional for later)
175g caster sugar
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas (make sure they are as ripe as can be as this will make it extra delicious!)
225g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp milk (cater this to your preferences)

1. Begin by peeling and mashing your bananas and set aside for later.
2. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C/350°F/ Gas Mark 4.
3. In a loaf tin, begin by lightly greasing the sides and line with non-stick baking parchment.
4. Measure all the other ingredients into a mixing bowl, not forgetting to add the mashed banana that you set aside for later.
5. Beat all your ingredients together for around 2 minutes, until well blended.
6. Once mixed together, spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth over the surface until level.
7. Place in the oven and bake for around 50 minutes to an hour. The skewer should come out clean once the baking time is over.
8. Once baked, take your banana bread out of the oven and leave the cake to cool in the tin for a few minutes, before gently loosening the paper from the tin and placing on the cooling rack. You should then be able to easily remove the baking parchment once cooled, before placing it on the decorative tableware item of your choice.
