Overripe bananas

2-3 (about 260g)

Buttery spread or butter, melted

75g

Egg

1

vanilla extract (optional)

1tsp

Plain flour

300g

Baking powder

1tsp

Bicarbonate of soda

1tsp

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied customer Easy recipe to follow and very satisfied with result. It was well risen and was moist and tasty. Have not made Banana bread before so unable to compare with any past effort. Overall I was pleased with the result.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit disappointing :( I had a tin on condensed milk in the cupboard, so thought I would give this a go. It took around an hour and ten minutes to bake in the oven and it was absolutely massive once risen! I didn't feel that it was better than other banana bread recipes I have made previously (using sugar). It was quite bland, so I ended up cutting it into three length-ways and adding some salted caramel buttercream icing for a bit of sweetness and flavour.
