Simple Ways To Bake Homemade Bread In Less Than 60 Minutes [see photos]

A cross between banana bread and a drizzle cake, this easy banana loaf recipe is a quick bake that can be frozen and is great for using up overripe bananas


140g butter

Softened, plus extra for the tin

140g caster sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

140g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 very ripe bananas


50g icing sugar

handful dried banana chips, for decoration

Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.

1. Butter a 2lb loaf tin and line the base and sides with baking parchment.

2. Cream 140g softened butter and 140g caster sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add 2 beaten large eggs with a little of the 140g flour.

3. Fold in the remaining flour, 1 tsp baking powder and 2 mashed bananas.

4. Pour into the tin and bake for about 30 mins until a skewer comes out clean. If your cake needs longer then keep it in the oven until it is cooked.

5. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove to a wire rack.

6. Mix 50g icing sugar with 2-3 tsp water to make a runny icing.

7. Drizzle the icing across the top of the cake and decorate with a handful of banana chips
