If you’re looking for a super easy, super delicious Banana Bread recipe then pop this in your book.

I nabbed this bad boy from Taste.com.au and have made it twice already. On both occasions it’s come out perfectly- even when I’ve snuck in additions like walnuts, chocolate chips and extra cinnamon.

It’s best eaten when still warm, or tastes even better toasted lightly under the griller with a smidge of butter.



Easy Peasy Banana Bread



  • Melted low-fat dairy spread, to grease
  • 265g (1 3/4 cups) self-raising flour
  • 40g (1/4 cup) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 140g (2/3 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
  • 2 overripe medium bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) skim milk
  • 50g butter, melted, cooled


Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray a loaf pan with olive oil spray to lightly grease. Line the base and 2 opposite sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang.

Sift the combined flours and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and make a well in the centre. Mash bananas in a medium bowl. Add the eggs, milk, and melted butter, and stir until well combined. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.

Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and set aside in the pan for 5 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into slices to serve.
