Today I’m going to share with you one of the easiest recipes I know, my All In One Banana Loaf. This Banana Loaf Recipe is perfect for using up those ripe, brown, bananas that would otherwise end up in the bin. The riper the better with a Banana Loaf as the riper the bananas, the sweeter it’ll be. And all the other ingredients are ones that most people keep in the cupboard. I use an all-in-one method, by weighing all of the ingredients into one bowl. It couldn’t get any simpler, 10 minutes and it’s in the oven.
170g caster sugar
2 medium eggs
225g self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons milk
2 ripe bananas
1. Preheat oven to 180°c/160°c fan. Grease and line a loaf tin.
2. Measure all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Stir well until combined. I usually use a wooden spoon but you can also use an electric whisk.
3. Pour the mixture in to your prepared loaf tin and gently level off the top. Place in the oven for 1 hour 15 minutes, checking at regular intervals after 50 minutes. Bake until golden brown and a skewer/knife comes out clean. Leave to cool.
I’d love to see your photos if you have a go at this Banana Loaf Recipe. Do you have a favourite go-to easy recipe?

I have never tried making my own banana loaf, mainly because my baking skills are limited but I do think it is delicious. Maybe I should try it out again! x

Oh I do love a good banana loaf – had a big chat with my daughters speech therapist this week where we both decided it definitely counts towards your five a day!
Oh yes definitely. I’m with you both on that!
I’ve never tried banana cake before as I tend not to like the flavour when the bananas get too strong! Plus the sugars put me off when they go to ripe (being a diabetic isn’t fun) but the recipe sounds easily to follow and tasty x
This recipe doesn’t make it too strong, I often add other banana to give it more of a taste. I think you’ll be surprised if you try it.
I’ve never actually baked banana loaf before, but this is a super easy yet delicious sounding recipe, i’ll have to give it a go soon!
You need to! They’re so simple to make. Let me know how you get on if you do make one.
I’m a big banana bread fan, mainly as I always overbuy bananas.
Yep I’m the same. Although I think I may just buy them because I want to make banana loaf.
I love baking banana cake, and it’s the only way I can get my family to eat bananas!
I’ve never thought of it like that. An easy way to get fruit in the diet hehe.
