"Recipe from an email from a kitchen wharehouse supplier - looks interesting and would like to try if I can get some bananas ripened enough and not have the DS throw them out on me (30 years with autism intellectual impairment), I just may get to make this recipe, in the mean time here for safe keeping. Times are estimated."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 175C fan forced (for conventional I would recommend about 185C).

Grease and line (with baking paper) a standard loaf tin.

Step 3

Sift flour, bi-carbonate and baking powder together.

Step 4

Cream butter and sugar with a stand mixer or hand held mixer until well mixed.

Add the egg and mashed banana and mix well together.

Step 6

Add the sifted flour and baking powder till incorporated and mix well and then add the 2 tablespoons milk and mix through.

Add sifted flour and baking powder till incorporated.

Step 8

Pour mix into prepared loaf pan.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, test with skewer for doneness (should come out clean).

For being so low in fat, this is really moist. I made one change-I added 1 tsp. of vanilla extract.

Made exactly as written for the FYC Tag Game @ FF&F - This is excellent banana bread Pat .. Moist, full-flavored & the easiest fix of the genre that I've made. It will be served to our family tomorrow at the weekly brunch & I'm hoping to post another pic. Thx for sharing this tasty recipe w/us.

Very good banana bread/cake. We made mini loafs with this recipe and were able to make 3 mini loaves and one small (4 x 6) loaf. Very good bread/cake which we enjoyed! Thanks for sharing!
