Nothing beats a freshly baked, warm and soothing banana bread to comfort and satisfy.
This recipe is a quick, no-fuss, one-bowl wonder.
A more-ish, comforting bread delicious eaten while still warm!
150g organic, unsalted butter, at room temperature
150g organic, unrefined golden caster sugar
2 organic, free-range eggs
4 organic, very ripe bananas
1/2 teaspoon good quality vanilla essence
175g organic self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon organic blue poppy seeds
1 tablespoon organic chia seeds
1 tablespoon organic golden flax seeds
Set your oven to 170c.
In a blender, cream together the caster sugar and butter and when it is well mixed and smooth, keep the motor running and add the eggs, one at a time allowing each egg to get fully combined before adding the next.
Peel and roughly chop the bananas and add them to the blender, along with the vanilla essence and give it a good blitz so the bananas have smashed down and all is mixed well.
Weigh out the flour and add to the blender along with the blue poppy seeds, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda.
Given it quick blitz so the flour is well combined.
Butter or line a bread tin and pour in the banana mix.
Bake the bread in the middle shelf of the oven for 45-55 minutes.
You will know when it’s done when it has risen slightly and it’s golden brown and when pierced with a skewer it comes out clean.
Leave the bread to cool in the tin for 5 minutes then either turn out onto a rack and allow to cool or tuck in!
