Go bananas!

I love love baking! I try to bake cakes and bread as much as I can but my sister also bakes so it's a fight to who gets to bake and decorate the cakes every week! So as I had a few left over over ripe bananas I looked online for a Banana Loaf recipe (it's actually one my friend recommended to me) and decided to try it.


Ingredients:
125g Butter
125g Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
500g Bananas (I used other really over ripe bananas that were so brown they didn't look that nice!)
250g Self-Raising Flour
1 tsp of Cinnamon (if you want to!)

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs then add the mashed bananas and self-raising flour and mix!
Use a greased-proof paper loaf tin and cook in the over around 180 degrees. It said on the recipe to cook for 1 hour 15mins but I found that the top was burnt and the middle still not cooked, so my mum told me to put a bit of foil on top to stop it from burning (she told me this after I burnt it, she's so helpful!) So basically it's up to you to watch it doesn't burn! Then leave it to cool for a bit, it may sink so leave it in the oven to cool down slowly (with the oven turned off!).


It looks horrible but tastes so good! Plus it's one of your five a day, well I like to think it is :)

Happy baking!
