A moist banana bread with easy and quick steps


Units Scale
  • 150g butter, softened
  • 150g soft light brown sugar (I used demerara sugar)
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 2 large eggs (at room temperature)
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • I/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan I60°C/350°F/gas 4) and line the loaf tin with baking parchment. I usually put a strip along the whole length of the tin, making sure that it comes well over the edges. This makes It easy to remove the loaf when it is cooked.
  2. Using a stand mixer or hand-held electric whisk. cream the butter and the sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  3. Then add one of the eggs and half of the flour and beat well, followed by the other egg and the rest of the flour along with the baking powder.
  4. Fold in the mashed bananas and then spoon the mixture into the lined tin.
  5. Bake the loaf for about 1 hour. If after about 25-30 minutes in the oven, the bread is browning too much on top, cover it with foil.
  6. To check that the bread Is cooked, insert a skewer Into the centre of the loaf - it should come out clean. When the loaf is cooked, leave it to cool completely in the tin.
