Banana Loaf

Banana Loaf 


  • 60g butter softened (1/4 cup)
  • 70g granulated sugar (1/3 cup)
  • 1 large free range egg
  • 125g mashed banana (1/2 cup)
  • 2 TBS sour milk (see note)
  • 175g plain flour (1 1/4 cups)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • handful of toasted chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4.  Butter a small loaf tin (7-1/2 by 3-3/4 by 2-1/8 inch) and line with some baking paper.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl, then beat in the egg, banana and sour milk.
  3. Whisk the flour, soda and salt together.  Add to the creamed mixture stirring just to combine.  It is okay and preferable for the batter to be a bit lumpy. Stir in walnuts if using. (You could also use chocolate chips.)
  4. Spoon into the prepared loaf tin.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean and it is well risen and golden brown.
  6. Lift out onto a wire rack to cool completely before cutting into slices to enjoy.


To make the sour milk.  Measure 1/2 tsp of white vinegar into a TBS measure and fill with milk.  Dump into a small cup.  Add the other TBS of milk and let sit for five minutes.
