Going Bananas!

Banana Bread ( adapted from Donna Hay magazine)

Ever go to the supermarket and go crazy wanting to eat healthy and you buy so many fruits thinking you are gonna eat 5 servings of fruits a day..I’m gonna make smoothies everyday and firm up etc etc…and then you have so many fruits starting to go bad! and the bananas are always going bad really quick …gosh it’s happen to me so many times! So this is an extremely simple banana bread recipe which you can use for those overripe bananas. Works each time . I have a few other more posh banana bread/cake recipes which I shall post another time. Try this and let me know how it goes.


  • 2 cups mashed bananas
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 125g softened butter( unsalted)
  • 1 3/4 cups plain flour sifted
  • 1/4 cup honey/molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder

Preheat oven to 160deg C.

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla extract together for about 8-10minutes till creamy and fluffy. Then scrape down the sides. Add one egg at a time and beat till well combined.

Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, honey and cinnamon powder, mix with a big metal spoon till just combined. Pour into a bread pan, 11x15cm and bake for 60 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes before cutting into slices. Serve plain or with extra butter.
