    Banana Bread 2006

    Sugar affects the moisture-retaining properties of food, and as this bread doesn't contain any added sugar – only the natural sugars in the sultanas and bananas – it will dry out quicker. So, invite some friends and plan to eat it all on the day it's made.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 8 minutes to 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 50 minutes to 60 minutes
    • Total time: 58 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes 60 minutes 10 minutes


    • 225g plain flour
    • 1 heaped tsp baking powder
    • 3 tbsp sultanas
    • 100g butter, melted and cooled
    • 2 large eggs, beaten
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 oranges, zest grated
    • 5 very ripe medium bananas, peeled and mashed to a pulp


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4 and grease a loaf tin (19cm x 9cm x 6cm is perfect). Combine the flour, baking powder, sultanas and a pinch of salt in a large bowl and set aside. Blend the butter with the eggs, vanilla, orange zest and bananas and stir well to combine.
    2. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry so they're just combined (don't overwork the mixture) and pour into the loaf tin. Bake in the oven for around 50 minutes to 1 hour, until a skewer inserted into the loaf comes out clean. Remove from the tin and place on a cooling rack. It's best eaten slightly warm.
