Banana Bread – Method & Instructions
Pre-heat the oven to Gas 5/190°C/375°F
Melt the butter in a pot.
Squash the banana with a fork on a plate.
Put the squashed banana into a mixing bowl.
Pour the melted butter into the mixing bowl along with the squashed banana.
Add both the sugars to the mixing bowl. If you don’t have soft brown sugar then you can use all caster sugar instead.
Now put your eggs into the mixing bowl.
To the mixing bowl add your vanilla extract or vanilla essence.
Slowly add the flour into the banana bread mixture. Start by adding a third of the flour and fold the flour in with a spatula. When the flour has been folded in, then add another third and fold that in gently. Then add the remaining third of your flour and fold in.
Make sure you have mixed all the flour in well, making sure to scrape the edge of the bowl of any flour that might be lingering.
When you have added the final part of the flour, the banana bread mixture can get very thick.
At this point you would add your milk and mix it in.
Pour in the chocolate chips and stir in gently.
Line your bread tin with grease proof paper or you can buy a case to fit in your tin.
Pour in the banana bread mixture into your bread tin.
Smooth over the mixture with your spatula.
Place some chocolate chips on the top.
Bake in the oven for 50 minutes.
