Anna-Banana Bread

I hated being called Anna-Banana growing up. I also dislike bananas *blush*, but I do love Banana Bread 😉



4oz margarine/butter, softened

6oz soft brown sugar

2 bananas (riper the better)

2 eggs

8oz self-raising flour (or 8oz plain flour and 2 tsp baking powder)

2oz chopped walnuts (optional)

2 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4/175°C/350°F.
  2. Cream the marg/butter and sugar well.
  3. Mash the bananas and add to the butter & sugar (or do as I do, and just throw the bananas into the mixer and let the beater blade do the mashing).
  4. Add in the eggs, milk and flour, mixing till combined fully.
  5. Pour into a greased & lined loaf tin and bake for 1 hour.
  6. Leave to cool if you can resist the smells – it slices better cold, but it’s amazing warm lol. Enjoy!
