Bananarama Bread

Album 'Deep Sea Skiving' Bananarama 1983

Why is it so grey and gloomy?!We don't deserve a cruel summer, fingers crossed this weekend I need the sun to get a grip and make an appearance.

There were three lonely bananas staring at me from the fruit bowl, they looked like they had over done it this weekend, all that rubbing up against the oranges what did they expect? They over ripe and not many people like a banana once its brown on the outside.

I love them, so what was it going to be?

One in cereal, the other two needed to be mashed and put out their misery...

Banana muffins
In a sandwich

What I do best is bake, so banana bread it was.

Small loaf tin greased
200g plain wholemeal flour, this will give the bread a nutty flavour
1 tsp baking powder
100g brown sugar
100g melted butter
2 eggs
2 miserable looking bananas, mashed
half tsp mixed spice

Whisk butter and sugar, then add eggs.

Fold in the dry ingredients, under mix with a butter knife.

In the oven, 180°c for 20 minutes.

Try not to over complicate the recipe, and remember 'it ain't what you do it's the way that you do it, that's what gets results'.

It's a catchy song!
