Banana bread recipe




Ingredients

200g (1¾ cups) plain (all purpose) flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
50g (½ cup) chopped walnuts
6 over-ripe black bananas
1 zucchini, peeled and grated
2 large eggs, beaten

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C (160° fan). Grease a 1kg loaf tin.
  2. Place all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Mash the bananas and stir into the eggs with the zucchini .
  4. Gently fold the banana and egg mixture into the dry ingredients until blended.
  5. Pour into the tin and bake for 45–60 minutes until golden and springy to the touch. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Leftovers: Banana bread can be frozen. Freeze in individual slices in zip lock bags ready to add to lunch-boxes.

Tip: If using fresh berries, wash just before using them to avoid mould growth from the extra moisture.

Leftovers: Grill any leftover slices of banana bread and top with ricotta and fresh berries for a delicious breakfast.

Variation: Remove the nuts for a smoother consistency.
