B is for fresh Banana Bread

Category: food

What better way is there to start your day than with a piece of freshly baked banana bread? Complement your morning coffee in the tastiest way possible and glide through the morning feeling completely satisfied. 

Method
1 - Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) | 350F | gas 4. Grease and line the base and sides of a 900 g | 2 lb loaf tin with greaseproof paper. 2 - Combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl, stirring well. 
3 - Beat together the butter, sugar, and maple syrup in a separate mixing bowl until pale and creamy, 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one by one, and then the milk, vanilla extract, and mashed bananas.
4 - Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf tin and rap on a work surface to help settle. Bake for about 1 hour until golden and risen on top; cover the top with aluminium foil if it starts to brown too quickly. 
5 - When ready, a cake tester should come out clean from the centre. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack before turning out, slicing, and serving.
