Banana Bread Recipe

I have adapted my recipe from the Love Bake Nourish by Amber Rose, Banana and Cinnamon cake recipe.

A YouTube tutorial can be seen on Girl About The Yard’s YouTube, if you prefer visual!

Now then,

The advice is that it feeds 8-10 people – must be small people, I’ve done the whole thing in one 30 minute sitting…



Preheat the oven, at 170 degrees – or keep a space in the Baking Oven of the Aga . Grease your usual bread rectangle tin, whatever design you’d like your bread to look like

Put the sultanas in the tea, and leave to soak as you mix the rest. 

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Melt the butter and the maple syrup over the heat, and keep mixing, then add to the dry ingredients and mix further. 

Beat in the egg, and then the mashed banana. Drain your sultanas, add to the mixture, and add vanilla extract. Mix away, fold if you desire. 

Scrape the mixture into the already greased pan, and left it off with a palette knife.

Cook for an hour, I find that it is more like 50 minutes in the Aga, but keep an eye on it past 40 minutes. 

When the skewer is clean, Bob’s your uncle. 

Remove from the over and allow to cool! 

Happy munching,
