Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mash the peeled bananas with a fork, then mix well with the oil and sugar. Add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon, and combine well. Add the dried fruit or nuts, if using.

  2. Bake in a greased, lined 2lb loaf tin for 20 minutes. Check and cover with foil if the cake is browning. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

  3. Allow to cool a little before slicing. It's delicious freshly baked, but develops a lovely gooey quality the day after.

This is such a great recipe! I normally just follow a recipe and don't leave any comments, but I specifically signed up just to post my comments for this recipe. I used melted butter instead of oil, self-rising flour with 2 level teaspoons of baking powder and light brown caster sugar. The banana bread turned out amazingly soft and delicious. This is going to be my go to recipe for those black bananas staring at me from the kitchen counter every other week.

Great recipe! Made it gluten-free by substituting Dove's Farm plain flour and adding in a tsp of rice milk as the flour is drier as someone already mentioned. Also added a crunchy top by sprinkling on demerera sugar mixed with cinnamon before baking (though given that quite a few comments have complained about too much cinnamon already, perhaps that addition isn't for everyone!). It took 57 mins to bake in my fan oven at 180C, so almost spot on according to the recipe.

Just baked this using the SR flour option. Nice and light, with a good consistency, but WAY too much cinnamon. Half would be enough. I'm going to serve it with stewed apple and custard, as it's a bit overpowering on its own. Will bake again using reduced spice.

Made this the other day, so a vegan workmate didn't miss out on morning tea. It was the first thing to get eaten. I only had two bananas so added some finely chopped dried banana to boost the flavour and it added some great texture.

I am in love with this! I make it into muffins and it takes half the time and I split up the batter to have different nuts in it. It is totally better the next day, warmed up with a little butter oh my goodness!
