Makes 1 loaf, 10mins preparation, 35mins cooking

This loaf is very simple to make and tastes delicious with a little butter and served with a cup of tea! You can bake it as one large loaf or, for bite-sized morsels you can bake in a cake/muffin tin instead to make mini banana cakes.


  • 460g very ripe bananas (this recipe is a great way to use up over-ripe bananas)
  • 110g vegetable oil
  • 140g melted butter
  • 460g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 460g plain white flour
  • 20g baking powder
  • ½tsp salt


1. Preheat the oven to 170C.

2. Beat the bananas, oil and butter together in a large bowl using a wooden spoon.

3. Once these ingredients have been combined, add the sugar and eggs then mix until smooth.

4. Add all the dry ingredients and mix well – make sure there are no lumps! - then place the mixture into a large loaf tin or into a muffin/fairy cake tin and bake for 35minutes

5. Once baked turn the loaf/cakes out onto a cooling wire and once cool dust the loaf with icing sugar using a sieve.
