This is an excellent way of using up very ripe bananas. They give a fragrant taste and a wonderfully moist consistency to this loaf, which slices beautifully and makes an unusual tea bread, either spread with butter or just on its own. The flavour improves when the loaf is kept wrapped in foil.


  • 8 oz (225 g) plain flour
  • 3 teaspoons (3 X 5


Grease the bottom of a 2 lb (1 kg) loaf tin and line with greased greaseproof paper. Preheat the oven
