Banana Bread with Sultanas

    1 hour 40 minutes

    Banana bread is a great way to use up ripe bananas. This moist and tasty loaf is loaded with sultanas and mashed banana. Tastes even better the next day, if you can wait.

    Makes: 1 loaf

    • 80g sultanas
    • 100g unsalted butter
    • 130g caster sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 4 ripe bananas
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 200g self raising flour

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Extra time:30min cooling  ›  Ready in:1hour40min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C and grease a loaf tin.
    2. Cream the butter and sugar with a wooden spoon until they are nice and fluffy. Add just 1 egg until it is mixed in completely then add the other egg and the sultanas. Mix again until everything is thoroughly mixed. Peel the bananas and, with the back of a fork, mash them well and add them to the mix then stir again.
    3. Sift the flour into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients and fold into the mix, do not over work the mix, just a nice gentle fold will do.
    4. Pour the mix into the loaf tin then place in the oven for about 50 minutes, check the cake after 40 mins by putting a knife or skewer into the middle of the cake; if it comes out clean then it is ready. Remove from the oven and let it cool down in the tin for about 30 minutes. Take out of the tin, and enjoy.

    Cook's tip

    Personally if I can stop anyone eating it, this is much better the next day when it has rested. This will keep for a few days in an airtight tin.

    This is a lovely recipe I would agree with the review that it was soggy after 40 mins so I took it out of the tin put it back in slightly cooler oven and let it dry ,it was fine,I found today that by using 3 bananas instead of 4 worked perfect,its tastes fab!  -  22 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Followed recipe exactly, cake still very very wet at 40mins, give it another 10mins, skewer looked clean, but when taken out of the oven, sank slightly, after cooling it was still raw when cut, had to throw it in the bin.  -  09 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
