You lucky people today are getting two recipes. The first one I am going to show you is my recipe for low fat banana bread. This always goes down a storm at my bake sales because it’s low fat which is good for dieters and uses less sugar then most which appeals to the diabetics.
150g Caster Sugar
50g Softened Butter
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon (This is optional)
3 ripe bananas
200g Plain Flour
1 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
Preheat the oven at 180c/Gas Mark 4 and line a loaf tin with baking parchment.
In a medium bowl beat together the sugar and butter until the mixture becomes creamy.
In a separate bowl mash the bananas until mushy. This makes it easier to add to the mixture
Beat in the eggs,banana, and water combination. I like to divide it in half so 1 egg, half the water and half the bananas then mix then do the same with the other half.
When this is mixed measure out the flour, Bicarb, and baking powder and gradually add into the mixture. (If you decided to add the cinnamon then this is the time to do so)
Get a wooden spoon and make sure all the sides are scrapped down and mixed well.
Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and place in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes. To make sure the bread is cooked piece with a knife until the mixture comes out clean. I tend to note that when the bread is hard and wobbles no more then this generally means the bread is baked.
Enjoy the bread and something not to feel too guilty about.
I will be bringing you a recipe later on today for a chocolate marble cake.
