Banana loaf

This is my go to banana loaf recipe. It is super easy to make and delicious!

I like to add a tsp of cinnamon and a handful of raisins or chocolate chips but it is lovely just as it is.


2lb loaf tin

100g softened butter

175g caster sugar

2 large eggs

2 ripe bananas mashed

225g Self raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp milk

1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

handful of sultanas/raisins/choc chips (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 180c fan/gas mark 4, lightly grease the tin and line with non stick baking parchment.

  • Measure all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer for around 2 minutes until well blended.

  • Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin and level the surface

  • Bake for about 1 hour, until well risen, golden brown and a skewer inserted to the middle comes out clean.

  • Leave the loaf to cool in the tin for a few minutes and then peel off the parchment and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
