Easy Banana Bread Recipe

Good morning friends and happy Sunday!

Last night I popped open a bottle of red wine, and banana bread struck me as a good idea.

Now you know I love a quick and fuss free recipe, and this ones supplied by the amazing, Mary Berry.

Banana Bread Recipe

Prep time: 15 m

Cook time: 1 h

Total time: 1 h 15 min


100g (4oz)butter, softened

175g (6oz)caster sugar


2ripe bananas, mashed

225g (8oz)self-raising flour

1 tspbaking powder

2 tbspmilk

Essential kit

You will need a 900g (2lb) loaf tin, 17 x 9 x 9cm (6½ x 3½ x 3½in) base measurement.


Lightly grease the loaf tin and line it with non-stick baking parchment. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Measure all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat for about 2 minutes, until well blended; an electric mixer is best for this but of course you can also beat by hand with a spoon.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and level the surface. Bake for about 1 hour, until well risen and golden brown. A fine skewer inserted in the centre of the cake should come out clean.
Leave the cake to cool in the tin for a few minutes, then loosen with a small palette knife and turn the cake out. Remove the lining paper and leave on a wire rack to cool completely. Slice thickly to serve.

This paired particularly well with the wine, but I’m sure it’ll be delicious all the same with a cuppa tea!

    1. Hi Jenna,
      Thank you for reading and for such a lovely comment. I truly appreciate it.
      Honestly, sounds so cliche, but just go for it. Sometimes posts that are written so freely and honestly are the best ones. Planning content is great, but as long as your hearts in it. I love to read blogs that have a bit of life behind it that shines through.
      I look forward to reading your blogs too. Hope you’re having a great weekend! Kaya xxxx
