  2. half cup sugar (can be either castor, plain or raw)

  5. one and a half cup self raising flour
  6. one teaspoon vanilla essence
  7. one pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C.
  2. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  3. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs and beat again until well combined.
  5. Stir in bananas, vanilla, salt and flour. Mix until well combined.
  6. Pour mixture into tin and bake for 45 min.
  7. Test the top of the loaf to make sure it bounces back - a sure sign it's cooked enough!
  1. For a treat add some sliced bananas to the top and press into your batter! Drizzle over extra sugar to caramalise.
