Banana and Buttermilk Bread

As a kid I would eat an entire bunch of cavendish bananas all by myself. Still love them now, especially when they take a different form, like bread, for instance.

To make this :
150g softened butter
1 cup caster sugar
3 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup mashed bananas (around 3-4 pieces )
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup self raising flour
1 teaspoon bicarb
pinch of salt
sea salt, ground cinnamon and brown sugar, for sprinkling

Pre-heat oven to 180C. Grease a loaf tin and set aside.

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mashed banana, vanilla extract and buttermilk.

(that's actually a manual mixer!)

Sift dry ingredients on another bowl. Stir the flour mixture into the batter and mix until smooth.

Pour into prepared tin. Sprinkle sea salt, cinnamon and brown sugar on top (this was a personal touch, and not included in the Baking Bible, where this was based).

Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Cool in tin before turning on to a wire rack.

Serve with coffee for a nice brekky, or with afternoon tea.


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
