  • 230g butter, unsalted
  • 420g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 920g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 fresh vanilla pod, seeds
  • 6 large bananas, very ripe
  • 220g walnuts, roughly chopped


    1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Peel & mash the bananas (I use a potato masher - you'll see that they have a surprising amount of liquid in them!)
    2. Chop the walnuts (I like to chop half of them finely, the other half quite "chunky").
    3. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition.
    4. Sift all the dry ingredients together; add to creamed mixture.
    5. Stir in the mashed bananas and chopped nuts.
    6. Pour the dough into 2 well-greased loaf pans (or how about 1 loaf and 12 muffins?); for about 1 hour 15min (fan assisted) or 1 hour 45min (non fan-assisted), until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
