5 OZ BUTTER OR MARGARINE
4 OZ CASTER SUGAR
6 OZS SELF RAISING FLOUR
3 BANANAS
3 EGGS

2oz Desiccated (flaked) Coconut(Optional)


Cream together the butter and sugar until light and
fluffy.

In a separate bowl beat the egg and then add to the
creamed mixture.

In a bowl cut up the bananas and then mash them down
to form a lumply texture and then add them to the
creamed mixture

Stir in the flour.

Place the mixture into a greased 2 lb loaf tin.

Place into a pre-heated oven at gas mark 4 for 35-40
minutes or until the top springs back.
When cooked remove from tin and place onto a wire
rack and leave to cool.

Thanks for that Piglet. Other half got sick of seeing black bananas and threw them out last night, but I'm sure it won't be long before we have more. Really should just buy less.

Ha, Porshiepoo, my name henry20 has no meaning to me - it was in fact my husband that binned the bananas and it will be me that bakes the banana bread - I want to live to see another day!

Saying that, he cooks a better eve's pudding than me. He also prepares a lovely salad - they are works of art.

This is a recipe I developed after trying many banana cake recipes that didn't quite work.

Banana Cake/Loaf Recipe (http://www.mezza.co.uk/recipe/banana_cake_recipe.htm)

http://www.mezza.co.uk/recipe/banana_cake_small.jpg

Ingredients:

57g/2oz butter
57g/2oz unrefined sugar
227g/8oz plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 medium sized bananas cut into large chunks
2 large eggs
1 tbsp honey
27g/2oz walnutsMethod:

Preheat the oven to 180C/356F/Gas Mark 4.
Grease a small loaf tin or a ring cake tin (the cake will cook more quickly and evenly in a ring tin)
In a food processor or mixer, blend together the butter and sugar until smooth.
Add 1 banana (put the other aside for later), honey, flour, baking powder and eggs and mix until smooth.
Now add the other banana and the walnuts and blend on a slow speed for just long enough to distribute in the mix, but don't blend totally; you want to leave the walnuts and some of the banana in nice chunks to add texture to the cake.
Bake for approx 45 minutes in the loaf tin and approx 35-40 minutes in the ring tin.Great with a cup of tea or as a pudding with custard!

Just made the banana loaf, hecks its very heavy, i think i should have only used two bananas, never mind im sure it can be used as a pudding with ice-cream or custard.

No need to throw them out henry20. Just put them in the freezer (peel and all, if you want) until you are ready to use them.

We have got bananas that are rock hard. I got them in Tescos in Wick almost three weeks ago. I know they will never ripen now and was wondering if I could cook them . They won't mash . I have never seen anything like them they are so hard that you could break a window with them !!
