Banana Loaf

This receipe is SO moist & I like to leave my Banana fairly chunky when I add it to the cake mixture. Delicious with a cuppa.


  • 3 very ripe bananas

  • 125g of melted butter

  • 1/2 cup of Milk

  • 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract

  • 1 whole egg plus 1 extra egg yolk

  • 1 cup of Plain Flour

  • 1/2 cup of Self Raising Flour

  • 1 level teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon


  • 1.

    Pre-heat your oven to 180C Conventional. Grease & line a 20cm Loaf Tin.

  • 2.

    After melting the butter, add Milk, Eggs, Vanilla & roughly chopped/mashed Bananas.

  • 3.

    In another bowl, sift in both flours & Ground Cinnamon.

  • 4.

    Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients & pour in the wet ingredients.

  • 5.

    Mix well until combined & pour into a greased & lined Loaf Tin - approx 20cm long & bake for approx 45 minutes - testing with a skewer towards the end of cooking time. Allow cake to cool in Loaf tin at least 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.

  • 6.

    Serve warm or cold.


Sometimes I have also added 1/2 cup of chopped Walnuts to this recipe too - it adds a nice crunch!
