Thanks to DiyWithJoyce, I have got back into the baking and have been experimenting with new food. I don’t know if you know, but ever since I was a kid, I have always had a liking to baking and making cakes. And while I am not travelling, I usually like to keep myself occupied with other things like making banana bread.
I remember as a child making lots of fruit cakes, don’t ask me why because I hated a fruit cake and still do now, but I was good at it. I also made a right old Victorian Sponge, M&M cookies and little old muffins – these were my specialities. It’s a shame I didn’t really stick to it because who knows where I would be with it now. As I got older, I guess I lost interest and stopped baking as much. I can’t exactly remember why I stopped, but I didn’t pursue it thoroughly, and I think I just lost the confidence.
I have recently moved into a new place and decided that I would like to get back into baking cakes again! Lucky me, my auntie was nice enough to gift me with a weigh scale, and so I decided to make banana bread. If you are already a baker yourself you will know that there are a million in one way to make banana bread, so I thought it would be good to share how My Breaking Views made this amazing banana loaf!
- banana x2 (soft)
- 150g butter softened, plus a lil extra for the tin
- 150g caster sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten well
- 150g self-raising flour
- 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
- 1 tsp baking powder
You may need time to prepare your ingredients, so I would suggest giving yourself around 15- 20mins. Don’t rush it you want this to come out really good! Pre-heat oven your oven 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
It will roughly take around 40 –45 mins to bake at around 180C.
- Mush your bananas I do this with a fork, but I know there are more exclusive tools which can be used.
- Soften butter & peanut butter. I only eat crunchy PeanutButter, but I am sure you can use any PeanutButter. I usually add this to a bowl and put it in the microwave for like 15 seconds, I wouldn’t suggest this, but it does make it easy to mix!
- Add sugar to butter with Peanut Butter (Remember the peanut butter is optional).
- Make this mix nice and fluffy.
- Add the flour and eggs
- Butter your tin
- Add mixture into your tin
- Place in the oven
- Let it Cook
- & Enjoy
And mix! Hopefully, your mixture looks something like this:
And it’s as easy at that!
