Lunchbox banana bread

Ingredients

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 4 ripe bananas, well mashed
  • 125g butter, melted, cooled
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation method

  1. Preheat oven to moderate, 200°C. Lightly grease and line a 10 x 20cm loaf pan.

  2. Sift flour and cinnamon together into a large mixing bowl. Stir in sugar.

  3. In a large jug, combine banana, butter, eggs, milk and vanilla. Using a wooden spoon, lightly mix banana mixture into flour mixture until just combined.

  4. Pour into pan, smoothing top. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve sliced with butter, if liked.



TOP TIP
  • This loaf freezes well whole or in slices. Place slices straight from the freezer into the lunchbox. It will defrost by lunchtime and help to keep your lunchbox cool.
