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
1⁄3 cup melted butter
3⁄4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 1⁄2 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.
