Banana Bread, Best Served Farmhouse Style

This is a recipe I am so committed to I have it saved in my Favourites on my internet browser, which is premium space, only the best can reside there. I searched for the perfect recipe for years, when I came across this one from my talented friend over at Cook Fast Eat Slow. (Which I have ever so slightly modified, no raspberries in mine as I can’t mix fruit, but that is only one of my many quirks.)


1 3/4 Cups of plain Flour

1 t Bi Carb Soda

3/4 Cups of Castor Sugar

2 Eggs

1 1/2 Cups of Mashed Banana (Really mushy black ones make this taste the best)

1/2 Cup of Rice Bran Oil

1/3 Cup of Water

Pour into a greased loaf tin, the more farmhouse the better, this is a recipe that calls for a gorgeous looking tin, as the smell and the sight of this is completely divine.

For the ultimate treat, serve warm with butter that melts into the bread. Or cut and freeze for simple treats to put in lunch-boxes. Or grill to toast, yum.

I occasionally make this bread as a gift and wrap in a pretty tea towel and string, a simple sweet present for a friend, new mum, welcome to a new home gift… By way of pretty tea towels this is a new one I bought today as a gift from Australia for some friends, but I thought it was so gorgeous that I bought one for myself to remind me of the ocean when I was at home (another quirk).

I hope your day has been filled with the beautiful smell of home cooked baking, or that in some way you were reminded of a place you love to be.

Lots of Love x
