The Best Banana Loaf

We love bananas in the house, however on the rare occasion if we do have one or two left over there is only one thing for it! BANANA LOAF! For those who love a cup of tea and a slice of cake, this post is for you! I have to say, I could be biased, but it's pretty good. 

To make this banana loaf you will need:

140g butter 

140g sugar 

140g self-raising flour 

2 large or 3 medium eggs 

1 tsp of baking powder 

2 over ripe bananas 

50g icing sugar 

A few crushed banana chips

1. Preheat the oven to 180C for fan assisted or gas mark 4. Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin with parchment. 

2. Cream the butter and sugar then slowly add the eggs with a spoonful of flour. Add the remaining flour, baking powder and mashed bananas. 

3. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin, bang on the counter to get rid of air bubbles and bake for 30-40 minutes all depending on your oven. 

4. Let the loaf cool in the tin for 10 minutes 

5. Mix the icing sugar with tbsp of warm water. Add more or less to get a thick consistency. If you want pop the mixture in a piping bag and pipe a pattern on the top, if not just drizzle with a spoon. Then decorate with the crushed banana chips! 

Happy baking beauties
