This is an old recipe that belonged to my mother. I've been making this bread since I was a teenager. At a hospital cake stall, a doctor bought this bread and said that this was the best banana bread that he had tasted.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 3/4 cups (220g) plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup (150g) white sugar
  • 85g butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup (60g) chopped walnuts
