Banana Loaf

Yay weekends are fantastic :) Even when its raining and horrible weather outside. Means you can turn the heater on and get a hot cup of tea..ahh how lovely.
Even though it was raining all day, i managed to get all the washing done and most of the chores :) yay i like having everything done, feels so good.

Hubby worked for a few hours during the day, so i was all alone for lunch, i really wanted to make cheese scones, but we didn't have enough cheese, and i didn't want to go out in the rain to get some. So i make Banana Loaf, and with the left over better, made some muffins :) They turned out really yummy.
Here are some pics, and i will post the recipe below ( i made it up myself, i was happy with the ones i found, and i had a few things that i wanted to use up in the fridge)

Banana Loaf

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Line a loaf tin with baking paper.


200g Brown Sugar
150g Butter (softened)
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla 
4 Ripe Bananas (mashed)
3/4 Cup Yoghurt
2 Tbsp Cream (optional)
2 1/2 Cups White Flour
1 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda (bicarb)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips (or nuts)

  • Cream Butter and Sugar until smooth and creamy.
  • Add Eggs one at a time, and mix until all combined - add Vanilla.
  • Pour in Yoghurt and Cream, mix until smooth - approx 2 mins on med. speed.
  • Add mashed bananas (make sure they are mashed well, so you don't get any lumps)
  • Sift in Flour, Soda and Spices - mix well.
  • Lastly add Choc. Chips, and make sure they are all  combined.
  • Pour into lined Loaf tin.
  • (Recipe makes more then one loaf tin, you can either make a tray of 12 muffins (which is what i did) or wait for you loaf to be done, and make another smaller one (unless you have two tins, then do that))
  • Bake at 180 for about 1 1/2 hours, or until cake prick (or knife) comes out clean.
  • Note: if doing muffins, they only take about 20 mins, so keep checking them.

Once done, place on cooling rack, and when cooled store in a air tight container, should last up to a week. Or you could freeze it.

Hope you all have a great weekend, I'm off to get dressed for church :)
(there is even a bit of sun shining! amazing considering the violent storm last night)
