Banana bread

150g demerara sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large free range eggs
2 bananas, mashed
275g self-raising flour
shake of ground ginger
shake of ground cinnamon
150g unsalted butter, melted

  • Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 3 / 170 degrees C
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar until combined, the leave for five minutes - it will go a bit frothy
  • Whisk for a few more minutes, then add the mashed banana and vanilla and whisk until combined
  • Add the flour and spices, and stir to combine
  • Add the melted butter and stir until smooth (there will be a few lumps from the bananas)
  • Pour into a large cake tin (I always use silicone) and bake for 50 minutes
  • Turn halfway round through cooking
  • Test with a skewer and if it comes out clean, it's ready
  • If not, leave for another five minutes
  • Turn out on to a cooling rack and leave to cool nearly completely (it's easier to slice when cool!)
