Banana Bread Recipe

While my daughter was on holiday, she had a banana bread which was unlike the banana bread that I usually make.  With her being on a Disney Cruise, I searched american banana bread and came across this recipe.

5 x Ripe Bananas

1 3/4 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup of melted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

Pre heat the oven to 180 and grease a loaf tin.

In a bowl mash the bananas

In another bowl add the eggs, butter, vanilla extract and brown sugar and mix together, and then add the mashed banana and mix well.

Then add the flour, salt and baking soda and mix together until everything has mixed in.

Pour into the loaf tin and sprinkle some brown sugar on top to caramalise cook for 1 hour, turning half way through cooking.

I turned half way through cooking and then checked again after 15 minutes, to see if it was ready or needed the extra cooking.

The results

It is a lovely moist cake with a crunchy topping, this is much nicer than the banana bread that I usually make, but unfortunately is not the same as the one my daughter had on her holiday.  So the search continues.

Stayed tuned for my next attempt.
