Let’s Bake: Banana Bread!

Let’s Bake: Banana Bread!

So I made some banana bread with my cousin the other day and i’d forgotten how much I LOVE banana bread and so I thought it was about time to do another ‘Lets bake’!


8 0z margarine
8 0z Light Brown sugar
16 0z Plain Flour
4 medium eggs
6 Bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla Essence
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of cinnamon


Banana Buttercream Frosting: (Optional)

10 0z Icing Sugar
1 Banana
5 0z Butter
1 teaspoon of lemon juice

This recipe is doubled so that it serves 10-15.

To start with measure the margarine and sugar out and then mix until its smooth, while also adding the cinnamon.


Then crack 4 medium eggs in to a mixing bowel before mashing up the six bananas.

Sieve the flour and add the baking soda before beating in the eggs. Finally mix it all in with the sugar/margarine and cinnamon. Grease proof your tin with some butter (If you’re wondering why the banana bread is shaped like a cupcake that would be because we didn’t have a tin large enough…) AANNNDD because our banana bread then turned out to be cupcake shaped we made banana buttercream frosting for the top.  All you need to do for this is mix the icing sugar with the butter until its smooth – then add one mashed banana and a teaspoon of lemon juice (to stop the banana from going brown.) Et voilà, one banana bread…/banana cupcake!
