Banana Walnut Bread


  • 200g caster sugar
  • 3 very ripe bananas, peeled, and mashed with a fork
  • 50g toasted walnut pieces, chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for preparing the tin
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 150g plain flour

Preparation Method:

  • Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and salt into a medium bowl, set aside.
  • Whisk the eggs and vanilla together in a liquid measuring cup with a spout, set aside. Lightly brush a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf tin with butter.
  • Preheat the oven to 175°C.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or with an electric hand-held mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually pour the egg mixture into the butter while mixing until incorporated.
  • Add the bananas and the mixture will appear to be curdled, so don’t worry, and remove the bowl from the mixer.
  • With a rubber spatula, mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated.
  • Fold in the nuts and transfer the batter to the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  • Cool the bread in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  • Turn the bread out of the pan and let cool completely on the rack.
  • Wrap in cling film.
  • Banana bread is best if served the next day.
