Banana Bread

2 cups self-raising flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 skim milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
50g butter, melted and cooled
3 over ripe bananas, mashed

  1.  Preheat oven to 180'C.  Grease and line a loaf pan, allowing it to overhang.
  2. Sift flour and cinnamon into a large bowl.  Stir in brown sugar and make a well in centre.  
  3. Place the milk, eggs, cooled butter and mashed banana in separate bowl.  Stir until combined.
  4. Pour banana mixture into centre of flour mixture.  With a spoon, fold mixture until just combined.  Make sure not to over mix.  
  5. Spoon mixture into prepared pan.  Bake in oven for 45-50minutes, or until golden brown and firm to touch.  Cool for 10minutes in pan before turning on wire rack.
  6. Eat while warm, or serve cool with butter.


  1. Yum! Wish I had some that for breakfast. :)
