I found out about this through The Pink Whisk (the blog and website of Great British Bake Off contestant Ruth Clemens) and as i always use Lurpak butter to bake with, i guess i am forced (snigger) to take part 🙂
The whole idea of The Bake Club is to bake…then upload a photo…and you could possibly win a prize. I don’t really fancy my chances, but, what do they say? If you don’t try, you’ll never know.
So i’ve been pulling me hair out, trying to think how i can meet the brief this month which is “a daring loaf of bread”… (can’t believe how many people have uploaded pics that have nothing to do with a loaf of bread…cupcakes? Seriously? Don’t people read the details? lol) and i think this will count.
Recently, my lovely friend Sabrina over in the US has given me her recipe for her Banana Bread 🙂 Now, the reason this loaf would be daring, is because i don’t like Bananas lol. But I’m putting my faith in Sabrina that this loaf will change my views ( i bet she’s gulped as she read that lol).
Sabrina’s Banana Bread
Ive had to alter the recipe slightly (US to UK). Hope you don’t mind Sabrina 🙂
- 1/2 Cup melted butter (Lurpak of course!)
- 1 and 1/4 Cup caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 4 Ripe Bananas, mashed
- 1 Cup plain flour
- 1 Cup wholemeal flour
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp milk
- Grease a loaf tin and set the oven to 180 degree’s.
- Pour the melted butter in a mixing bowl with the sugar. Add the eggs and mashed up bananas. Mix well and add the bicarbonate, baking powder and salt. Blend well then add the flour, milk and vanilla.
- Mix ingredients well and pour into the greased loaf tin.
- Bake for 1 hour. Test to see if it is done by poking the middle with a metal skewer. If not cooked place back in the oven until the skewer comes out clean.
Well….. *grins* what can i say? Its gorgeous! Especially hot from the oven with butter on it 😉
Thank you so much Sabrina. I can now eat Bananas! 😉 I might try this recipe with other fruits…Blueberry? And next time i might try using just white flour rather than the mixture.
So ive entered this in this months Lurpak Comp…Wish me luck!
