Banana Maple Loaf

My hubby loves Banana Loaf...I find it boring to make as I've made it a thousand times!!

I always make it when I'm on the verge of throwing browning bananas out, this time is no exception. 

Here's how it goes....




All in one day! 

I feel I need to tell you that my hubby is a farmer working long hard days, so I let him off the greediness most of the time.

I also hate sultanas in baked goods but he likes it so I do this for him...

The ingredients seem a bit choppy but this is all I had available (I usually use all wholemeal flour)

Ingredients ~ makes 1 loaf
100g butter
100g sugar
90g wholemeal flour
20g self raising flour
1 egg
1 large, overripe banana (mashed)
100g sultanas (don't add these if you don't want them)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp maple
  1. Preheat over to 180/GM4/160 fan.
  2. Grease and line your loaf tin.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the egg and beat in until full incorporated.
  5. Add the syrup and mix well.
  6. Take just over a pinch of flour and toss the sultanas in it (this stops them sinking)
  7. Fold in the flour and baking powder.
  8. Fold in the mashed banana.
  9. Fold in the sultanas.
  10. Fill your tin 3/4 full and bake for 40 - 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Et Voila!!

A beautiful Banana Maple loaf (with added sultana's for the hubby).

  2. I love banana bakes and this looks amazing. I love sultanas too so will definitely have to give this a go.

  3. It's obviously an excellent cake if it disappears in one day. I'm a fan of putting sultanas in banana bread too although I usually add honey not maple. Will have to give maple a go next time.
