  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 150 g plain flour

Instructions

  • Lightly brush a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf tin with butter. Preheat the oven to 175°C.

  • Gradually pour the egg mixture into the butter while mixing until incorporated.
  • Add the bananas (the mixture will appear to be curdled, so don’t worry), and remove the bowl from the mixer.

  • 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.
