GBBO 2015: Week 3 Bread - Banana Bread

I have been intending to make bread for absolute months, and now I actually have no choice but to make it! I decided to go with the signature bake of this weeks GBBO; quick breads. I had to google what these were, and found a list of examples of quick breads - and praise the gods, Banana Bread was on the list! I absolutely adore banana bread. Normally the things I bake take at least four days to get eaten by everyone in my house, but when I made this, it was gone in less than 24 hours - mostly into my mouth. This is just so easy to make and it is going to be a permanent feature in my kitchen from now on. I used Mary Berry's Banana Loaf recipe to make this.

100g butter
175g Caster sugar
225g Self-raising flour
2 eggs
2 bananas
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp milk

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celcius (fan oven) and then grease the loaf tin and line it with greaseproof paper. The bananas need to be mashed up with a fork until it is practically a liquid.

This recipe really is simple. Weigh out all of the ingredients and add them into a mixing bowl. 

Then simply mix them all together. 

And it's done! Ready to go into the oven. Let it bake for an hour. 

And voila! Heaven on a plate.
