Banana Loaf

Prep time: 15 mins/Cook time: 50mins/Total time: 1 hour 5 mins



100g Co-op Butter

175g Fairtrade Caster Sugar

2 Co-op Eggs

2 Fairtrade Ripe Bananas

225g Marriages Self-Raising Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

2 Tablespoon Co-op Milk 



You will need a 900g (2lb) loaf tin. 

Non-Stick Baking Paper.



Lightly grease the loaf tin and line it with non-stick baking parchment. 

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.


Measure all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk for about 2 minutes, until well blended; an electric mixer is best for this but of course you can also whisk by hand with a wooden spoon or whisker.


Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and level the surface. Bake for 50 mins, until well risen and golden brown. 

A fine skewer inserted in the centre of the cake should come out clean


Leave the cake to cool in the tin for a few minutes, then loosen with a small palette knife and turn the cake out. Remove the lining paper and leave on a wire rack to cool completely. Slice thickly to serve...
