Banana Bread Recipe

Every year during winter time, banana bread becomes a traditional meal at home, so here is our recipe:


1/2 cup butter or margarine

2 tsps baking powder

2 cups flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla essence/extract

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

4-6 bananas


Preheat oven to 180* C.

Grease or spray the loaf pan.

Mix together the sugar and butter until creamy.

Add in the vanilla essence and the two eggs one by one, and mix well each time.

In another bowl sift the flour and add to it the baking powder and salt, and add to the wet mixture

Mash the banana’s and add  them in last.

Mix well.

Put the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for about an hour or until the toothpick or skewer comes out clean.

Let it cool for 5 minutes, and it is ready to serve, it often tastes even better the next day!

  • Banana’s are noted for giving a supply of energy, so they are wonderful to add to dishes during Winter months when we are sluggish, and need that extra bit of energy.
  • Banana’s are known to be mood lifters, and since the winter blues is a common affliction, banana bread is a wonderful way to add some happiness to the winter months.
  • Banana’s are great during exam time, so keep them handy during your mid and end of year exams!
  • Banana peels are good for fertilising, I remember throwing them into our fertiliser heap as a child.
