This morning I made banana bread in my pyjamas.*
I like to make banana bread from time to time, of course, to use up the squishy bananas. However, I'm rarely happy with the result. I usually decide that I don’t actually like banana bread/cake/muffins and take it into work, leave it in the kitchen where it is inhaled by my workmates. So there isn’t actually anything wrong with what I make but I just don’t love it like I do other sorts of cake.
125 gm butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs beaten
½ cup sour milk (= ½ cup milk + 1 tsp vinegar)
1 tsp bicarb
2 cups plain flour
2 bananas, ripe, mashed
Cream butter and sugar, stir in eggs. Mix milk and bicarb, add to mixture and fold through. Stir in flour, salt and bananas and mix thoroughly. Pour into a lined cake tin and bake at 180C for 1 hour.
*I usually quite like step-by-step photos but, as I said, I was in my pyjamas and no one wants to see that! So a one-step photo today: the eating step! Delicious!
