A super simple banana loaf recipe, perfect for those over ripe bananas. When you start turning your noses up at bananas once they have gone a little over-ripe, this is the perfect recipe to use them up, to make a perfect banana loaf.
EVERYTHING YOU’LL NEED FOR THE EASIEST BANANA LOAF
- Caster sugar
- An egg
- Plain flour

This banana bread recipe is one of the best reasons to start baking. It’s a really simple tea time classic treat that is as tasty when fresh and hot out the oven or a couple of day later toasted with some butter. The key to a successful loaf is very ripe bananas, the riper they are the better the banana bread you will make! This recipe adds no spices, but you can easily spice it up (excuse the pun) with a teaspoon of cinnamon, mixed spice or even add chocolate chips or chocolate chunks?
