Banana Bread

Like, I have said in a previous post, Pancakes, I am getting a bit weary of my usual breakfast course! So, here is another recipe, the Banana Bread, which is amazing for breakfast time! Fits in so well, especially when you toast it, and then toss a cube of butter onto it, ah that melting butter is bliss! The recipe is from the Cooking for One cookbook!

Keep posted for the recipe ;)


  • Measuring Spoon
  • Measuring Cup or Kitchen Scale
  • Oven
  • Loaf Pan

  • 3 ripe bananas, well mashed
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp of grated orange/lemon zest
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 170g (3/4 cup) of caster sugar (I recommend using about 150g)
  • 300g (2 cups) of all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 75g (3/4 cup) of chopped walnuts (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 180˚C/350˚F. Grease a loaf pan, set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine the bananas, the eggs, and the lemon zest. Mix well.
  • Add the cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and flour.
  • Finally toss in the sugar and walnuts. Mix thoroughly.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until a knife/skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Serve warm or allow cooling and toast, smeared with butter.

Happy Breakfasting!

  • The bread will keep for several days in an airtight container.
  • If you wish to freeze the bread, go ahead! The bread will keep for upto a month.
