- Silicone baking parchment
- 250g wholemeal flour
- 3.5 tsps (generous) baking powder
- 0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
- 125g butter
- 50g soft brown sugar (sifted)
- 2 large eggs
- 4 very ripe medium sized bananas (mashed with a fork)
- 2 tbsp milk
Pre-heat the oven to 180C (Gas Mark 4).
Line a bread tin (I used one 23x13x7cm) with baking parchment (or greased greaseproof paper).
Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl.
In another (large) bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (I used a handheld mixer).
Add the eggs, mashed bananas, and milk, and continue to mix. If the mixture curdles, add 2 tbsp of the flour mix and continue beating.
Fold in the remaining flour, and spoon the mixture into the lined bread tin.
Bake for about 1 hour until risen and golden brown (take a look after 45 minutes).
Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
I sliced mine, ate some and froze the remaining slices.
