Banana Bread

I wonder who is the genius who invented banana bread? It's like great excuse for us to have cake for breakfast!!!! While I am aware that banana bread is healthier- with no butter usually and made with milk and oil, it tastes awesome toasted as well. Genius I say!

I'm excited when I see bananas for sure at a slightly more decent price. Yup. Excited over simple bananas. Well, it was selling for AU$15 a kg and some places even at $18/kg at its peak. For the past few months, bananas are a TREAT.

Due to good weather, bananas are finally more affordable, going at around $6/kg for the past few weeks. It was nice, just being able to afford a bunch of bananas rather than just 1 or 2.

Now, you would think that we would be generous and share this bake with our friends-like we usually do. Hubby turned around and said, let's savour this one for's not a big loaf plus we haven't had any for ages! Well said I think.. it fridged really well too- just require a handy toaster to heat it up again for an awesome treat.

Banana Bread -Donna Hay
1 2/3 cup of plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup of castor sugar
1/3 cup of brown Sugar
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 tsp of vanilla extract

2 eggs
1/2 cup of oil
5 mashed bananas (I was greedy)

Preheat Oven 160C

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jar, whisk and combine all liquid ingredients. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet one. Folod till well combined. Spoon into lined bread loaf tin. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon- make swirls if you like with a fork. Bake for 40-45 mins.
