Want to try your hand at baking but fear the complexity involved? Try this Banana Bread recipe by Laura of mylittlehongkongkitchen!
4 Ripe Bananas
160g Soft Brown Sugar
2 Large Eggs
4 tbsp Cold Unsalted Butter
180g Plain Flour
2 1/2tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2tsp Ground Cinnamon
Begin by mashing three of the four bananas into a chunky mash and set aside. Slice the fourth banana in half.
In a large clean mixing bowl, place the sugar and eggs. Melt the butter and add this to the bowl too. Use an electric hand mixer to beat the ingredients together until light and pale and then add the mashed bananas – combine.
Into the banana mix, sieve the plain flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Use a spatula to gently fold the ingredients together.
Grease a loaf tin with butter and dust with flour to line the tin. Add in the cake mix and top with the two remaining halves of banana. Place into a preheated oven at 170 degrees for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Allow the loaf to cook for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack and allowing to cool for a further 30 minutes. Perfect served alongside a mug of English Breakfast tea!
