My Go-To Banana Loaf

I always make this loaf when I have brown banana’s!  Fortunately my kids love it… 


1 3/4 Cup of Self Raising Flour
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Cup of Sugar
2 Eggs
1/4 Cup of Milk
1/4 Cup of Butter/Margarine
1 Banana (about a cup when it’s mashed)
Optional veges, such as carrot, celery, zucchini


Heat your oven to about 180°C.

Sift your flour, salt & baking soda into a bowl then pour your sugar in.

In your blender (or bowl if you can’t be bothered with blender – I find it easier) pop your eggs, milk, butter & mashed banana. Blend/whiz/whooz/beat, however you do it.

Pour the banana mixture & any grated veges into the dry ingredients & quickly give it a stir until it’s JUST combined. (Don’t overdo it)

Line a loaf pan with baking paper (or grease it up), pour your mixture in and pop into your nicely heated oven.

Bake for about 45 minutes – stick a skewer in at that point. If it comes out nice & clean, it’s ready. If it comes out sticky, check again in 5 – 10 minutes. The top gets nice & brown.

Once ready, let the loaf sit in the pan for another 10 minutes before transferring it to the wire rack.

Slice & serve!
