Sunday Bake day!
Sunday always seems to be a day where I find inspiration to pick up a whisk and bake.... and this Sunday I did just that. Not only to use up some old brown bananas but also because I was feening for coffee and cake.
Watching the Bananas in my fruit bowl looking terribly sad I decided to make a Banana loaf. Great Jodi, you made a decision! Banana Loaf! .. But not just any banana loaf of course.. while cleaning out the freezer I came across a next to empty bag of Raspberries.. so in they go... then I thought.. I need some crunch... left over walnuts from my Brownie Jars.. so you can join the party... and some white chocolate just because.. ;)
$ Cost Wise: Cheap - Once again butter is the costly ingredient. If you freeze your dodgy bananas that are brown and weepy then you are wining. Everything else are pantry items.
What a mouthful of a title- 'Banana, raspberry, walnut and white chocolate loaf'... so lets just call it - Banana Loaf. You may hate Raspberries or are allergic to nuts so if you don't like the added ingredients then leave them out and make a straight Banana loaf. Up to you - Make what you love.
- 1C sugar
- 1 1/2 C flour
- 1tsp baking soda
- 1tsp salt
- 3 ripe bananas (sad looking), mashed
- 1/4 C butter, melted
- 1 egg
Optional: nuts, frozen berries, chocolate chunks.
Preheat oven to 160C
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
In a seperate bowl mix together the mashed banana and the melted butter. once combined add in the egg and mix again.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until everything is combined - but don't over stir..
At this stage add all of your optionals or sprinkle on top.
Pour batter into greased and lined loaf tin and bake for 45mins or until golden and cooked.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 mins before removing from loaf tin.
Serve warm or cold with a cup of tea or coffee.
Notes: This loaf freezes well too! Bonus!
