Best banana bread recipe

Best Banana BreadIn my house, we eat a lot of banana bread just because it is delicious! It is also an easy way to use up over-ripened bananas and it is so easy to make. Plus, I give it to Ola and Lore as a pick-me-up snack when I collect them after school.

The best banana bread recipe I have found so far is Sophie Dhal’s. This can be found in her book Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights. Her banana bread recipe always comes out flawless whatever flour I use.


Talking of which, I usually use spelt, rye or coconut flour. (With coconut flour I have to tweak the recipe since you can’t substitute coconut flour for ‘normal’ flour at a 1:1 ratio). This morning, I am using plain white flour for pure indulgence and to be honest, that is the flour I have at home.

What you’ll need

75g butter

4 ripe bananas mashed up

200g brown sugar. ( I cut and substitute with maple syrup)

1 beaten egg

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda

Pinch of salt

170 grams of flour

What to do:

  1. Pour the mashed banana in a bowl
  2. mix in the butter, eggs and vanilla extract.
  3. When this has been mixed, add the bicarbonate of soda, salt and flour.
  4. Pour the mixture into a greased bread tin and bake for 1 hour at 180 degrees centigrade for normal oven or 160 degrees centigrade fan.
  5. Remove, cool and enjoy.
