125 g butter

1 C (250 ml) sugar

1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla essence

2 eggs

2 C (500 ml) cake flour

2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder

1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) salt

4–6 ripe bananas (the riper, the better)

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Add the vanilla essence, then add the eggs one at a time, beating well after every addition. Sift all the dry ingredients together and add to the butter and sugar mixture, then mash the bananas with a fork and add to the mixture as well. Mix until well combined and pour into a well-greased loaf tin. Bake for 1 hour.


The flavour improves if left for a few days … store in a tin or airtight container.

Don’t fret when the loaf cracks on top – this is supposed to happen!
