Banana and Coffee Bread

In the mood for some banana bread…

I’ve made this many times and each time I tend to add something different or change the recipe a little, but it always seems to turn out really nice. It takes like 10 minutes to prepare. Lots of banana keep it  very moist.

In an electric mixer cream together 110g butter and 160g castor sugar. Beat in 1 egg. Add 250g plain flour, 1/2 tsp bicarbonate Of soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp fine salt, 75ml milk (I use soy), 225g  smashed up banana and mix altogether to form a batter. Throw in 60g chopped walnuts (optional) and this time I added 1 1/2 tbs instant coffee granules for something different.

Pour batter into a baking paper lined loaf tin and bake at 180c for about 1 hour.

Having just tasted a piece I can tell you, the coffee works. Could have even added a little more.

Yum!

  1. coffee granules!! thats a first for me! I am a big fan of banana cake and my local dr is too.. always make extra to give to him! I should think about making your way.. coffee banana?

    • Sounds weird but it actually works. Unfortunately I’ve eaten it too close to bed time and I’m buzzing. Breakfast banana bread maybe.
      Hope you enjoy it.
