    I have got a fantastic banana bread recipe that is really easy and so yummy - i made it again this week! Need to go to my bub, but will come back and post it for you when I get time.

    Also have a delicious, but slighty more time-consuming cake recipe if you would like it.

    Banana Bread

    1&3/4 cups of SR flour
    1/4 cup of Plain flour
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    2/3 cup, firmly packed, brown sugar
    1/2 cup skim milk
    2 eggs, lightly whisked
    50g butter, melted, cooled
    2 overripe medium bananas, mashed

    Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a loaf tin and line the base and two opposite long sides with baking paper. Sift flours and cinnamon into a bowl, stir in sugar, make a well in the centre. Combine milk, egg, butter and banana in a bowl, then add to the flour mixture and sitr until just combined. Pour into tin and bake for 40-50 minutes, check with a skewer if you like. I prefer this to be slightly underdone rather than overdone IYKWIM? Let cool in tin for a few minutes before cooling on a wire rack. It's very yummy still warm from the oven!

    I love this recipe, it is so yummy! It's very nice with a little butter spread on one side.........

    So glad you like it! Apparently it's not too fattening which is always a good thing!

    Ohhh FANTASTIC girls, I was just wondering about a banana bread recipe the other day, for when the bananas start to get a little too ripe! Hurrah for you!

    Dachlostar linked to this the other day so I thought I'd try it. We had a flop the first time, the edges were cooked but the middle gooey (the cooked parts were delish though!) so I have another one cooking now

    I was just looking for a banana bread recipe as I had 2 over ripe bananas and didn't want to waste them and found this recipe, and it turned out fantastic!!! Light and very tasty! Just finished off a piece hot from the oven with butter, yummmm! Nice to hear it's not too fattening either!

    My Mum makes an amazing banana bread using either yoghurt or sour cream...I can't remember which.

    I'll call her today at a more reasonable hour and post it on here. I totally agree with the butter thing, too. Banana bread, still warm from the oven, and a smear of butter. Heaven
