Banana bread has always been a favourite of mine. 

When I was little, there were always recipes mum made, and recipes dad made – this was a dad recipe!


½ cup of margarine or

2/3 cup of  granulated sugar

1 egg

2 mashed bananas

1 ½ cups of all purpose flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

¼ teaspoon of salt

*chocolate chips or walnuts (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350°F

In a heat proof bowl, melt the butter and then add the sugar.

Mix it together. Add the egg, and mix. 

 It should look like this:

Add the two mashed bananas, and mix.

Then add in the final ingredients of flour, baking soda and salt.

Grease and flour a bread pan, and then add in the mixture. 

Try to level it all out.

Bake for 45 minutes to an hour.

Whenever I make this it tends to be closer to an hour.

Stick a skewer in the middle, and if it comes off with any raw batter, you know it needs to be cooked a little long.
