Banananana Bread. EXTRA anana as it's EXTRA good. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿž

I've been secretly hiding bananas until they get brown and then I guilt my husband into making banana bread. THERE. I've said it. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

He's definitely the baker of the family (see https://www.addictedtoveg.com/post/chocolatey-coffee-fluffy-moist-caaaake next). After the last hockey puck experience of mine, it is entirely in his court, and if I have to hide banana's to get him baking, I bloody well will. #noshame ๐Ÿ˜‹


He uses this recipe from @bbcgoodfood, but omits the dried fruit as he isn't a fan... (he couldn't be THAT perfect). Thank you Helen Rothwell for adding this beauty to the BBC Good Food site. ๐Ÿ’š


So fellow bakers (or hockey puck makers), here's what you'll need:


  • 3 large black bananas

  • 75g vegetable oil or sunflower oil (weight), plus extra for greasing

  • 100g brown sugar

  • 225g plain flour (or use self-raising flour and reduce the baking powder to 2 heaped tsp)

  • 3 heaped tsp baking powder

  • 3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice

  • 50g dried fruit or nuts (optional)

Before the beauty went in......

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.ย Mash the peeled bananas with a fork, then mix well with the oil and sugar. Add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon, and combine well.ย Add the dried fruit or nuts,ย if using.

  2. Bakeย in a greased,ย lined 2lb loaf tin for 20 minutes. Checkย and cover with foilย if the cake is browning. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

  3. Allow to cool a little before slicing. It's delicious freshly baked, but develops a lovely gooey quality the day after.

And omg, the next day it was EVEN BETTER!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ Enjoy fellow Vegos!! ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’š
