We are going on holiday! Hooray. A very long two day drive to a small town on the beach far far away from everything familiar to fish ourselves into a stupor before returning home a week later (another two day drive) to fall exhausted back into work. I can’t wait!
In preparation I have been baking and freezing to take with us and also attempting to use up all the perishables in the refrigerator. Today was a marathon baking day with most of the morning spent using up the bananas in the fridge.
What better to make than Banana Bread, it will freeze well and is universally loved by all.
1 cup castor sugar
2 – 3 large bananas mashed
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups flour
1 tsp bicarb
1 tsp baking powder
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and beat well.
Add bananas and vanilla and fold in dry ingredients.
Bake in a loaf tin at 180 c for 45 mins.
