Banana Loaf - very easy and delicious
Oven: 180 C: Fan 160C : Gas 4 - preheated - approx. 1 hr.
100g (3.5ozs.) softened butter
150g - 175g (5-6 ozs.) caster sugar
2 large eggs - beaten
2 ripe bananas - mashed
225g (8ozs) Self-Raising Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tablespoons of milk
Mix all the ingredients together until you have a nice creamy cake batter.
Lightly grease a 2lb. loaf tin and use either baking parchment or a cake liner and spoon the mixture in.
Smooth over, and tap down gently on your surface to remove any air gaps.
Test to see when cooked through, and leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes.
Peel off the parchment and leave to cool on a wire rack.
While it was still warm, I grated some chocolate over the top.
Easy - Peasy :o)
