Recipe: Banana Bread

Wondering what to do with all of those over-ripe bananas? Make banana bread of course. This timeless classic from Linda is always a hit!

Today we had so many bananas and because it's Richard's favourite, I decided to bake banana bread. It turned out divine and I am going to share my recipe with you. It has been in our family for quite a few generations:


125 g butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 free range eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
4-6 really ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla essence
half tsp salt

1. Beat sugar and butter until creamy then add vanilla.
2. Add eggs one at a time and beat.
3. Sift dry ingredients together and add to butter and sugar mix.
4. Mash bananas and add to the mixture.
5. Mix well and put into a small greased loaf pan.

Bake @ 180 degrees celsius for an hour.

Thanks, Linda, we will! And if that recipe doesn't warm your bones on a crisp fall day, Linda's charming etsy shop - Mamma4earth - is sure to warm your heart. Her shop features an array of Waldorf inspired hand-knitted treasures, including knitted farm animals. In Linda’s words: “All my items are knitted with the most beautiful pure Merino sheep wool from the Cape in South Africa and they are filled with pure fleece. The wool I use is very precious to me because it has been handspun and hand dyed.”

Hmm might just make some banana bread myself. Though it might have too wait as i'm currently doing a lot of holiday themed baking.
