Bananas about Banana Bread

Tired of wasting money? Well banana bread is an easy and delicious way to fix that. Instead of throwing out old bananas, you can transform them into something edible and sweet. For the most part Banana breads could be considered a ‘quick bread’, which were first made at the end of the 18th century in America. However, the first banana bread recipes didn’t appear until the 1930’s in Pillsbury's Balanced Recipes cookbook. Even though Bananas bread was around in America for thirty years, it didn’t become popular until the 1960’s. There many variations of banana breads, and here is one of the recipe that we use.

140g unsalted butter, melted
270g light muscovado sugar or soft light brown
2 eggs
200g over ripe bananas, mashed
280g plain flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
30g walnuts pieces
30g chocolate chips or drops
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger

The first thing that needs to be done is to beat the sugar and eggs together until they are light and fluffy. Once the eggs are thoroughly beaten, add the mashed bananas. Next combine  flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, walnuts, chocolate, cinnamon and ginger and mix until well. The final step is to add melted butter and mix until it is completely combined.
Once the batter is complete pour it into a loaf tin and bake for 1 hour at 170 degrees
