Moist banana bread

This is a very moist banana loaf recipe, with heaps of banana flavour, that I got from a friend. I could not believe how quickly this loaf was devoured, so maybe you should dou­ble up your ingre­di­ents and bake two.

I have one of those “out­door bread ovens”, basi­cally a steel box that you can place coals on top of and around, to cause an oven effect. I find that it works very well, but depend­ing how exposed your fire is, cook­ing time can vary hugely.


3 to 4 ripe bananas, smashed
13 cup melted but­ter
34 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 12 cups of self rais­ing flour
1 tea­spoon vanilla
1 tea­spoon bak­ing soda
Pinch of salt


Mix the but­ter into the mashed bananas in a large mix­ing bowl.
Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla.
Sprin­kle the bak­ing soda and salt over the mix­ture and mix in.
Add the flour last, and mix well.
Pour mix­ture into a but­tered 10x20cm loaf pan.
Bake for approx­i­mately an hour.
Remove from pan,let it cool and slice to serve.

If you are going to bake the bread in the oven, bake ti at a 180 C for an hour.
