Overripe bananas

2-3 (about 260g)

Buttery spread or butter, melted




vanilla extract (optional)


Plain flour


Baking powder


Bicarbonate of soda


You will also need:

900g (2lb) loaf tin

Step 1 of 5

Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.

Step 2 of 5

Slice the bananas into a bowl and then mash with a fork.

Step 3 of 5

Place the mashed banana, condensed milk, buttery spread, egg and vanilla in a large bowl with a pinch of salt and beat to combine.

Step 4 of 5

Mix in the flour, baking powder and baking soda.

Step 5 of 5

Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 60-80 minutes, or until a cake skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

If the top is getting too brown and the centre still not baked through, cover with a piece of parchment or loosely with foil for the remaining 10-15 minutes of cooking.
