easy banana bread


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or honey (optional)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups plain/all-purpose flour


  • Preheat oven to 180deg C
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until soft and smooth.
  • Add the melted butter, baking soda, eggs, honey and vanilla, and stir well.
  • Mix in the flour
  • Feel free to add any chocolate chips, nuts or raisins at this point.
  • Pour batter into a buttered loaf tin and bake for 45-50 minutes or until cooked through (I usually insert a kebab stick to the centre and if it comes out clean it means its cooked)
  • Remove bread from oven and from pan and allow to stand for at least 10 minutes or until cool, before slicing
