Mmmmm Banana Bread!

Yummy Banana Bread 
is so so good!

Not only does it taste spectacular with a cup of tea but it makes the house smell wonderful while it's cooking.

My kid just love bananas and so invariably there are always bananas in the house that need using up. Luke came across this receipe and he makes it too [usually with more mess] and I have added things to it . . . much to his disgust. This one has chocolate chips added with slithered almonds on top for a little crunch, but another favourite is banana bread with rasberries and white choc bits. YUMMY! It comes out of the tin neatly wrapped in paper and if you add some ribbon around the bottom, it makes a great gift. Or you can put them in patty papers for little hands too. 
Here's how to make it:

Banana Bread:

50 g Butter melted and cooled
1 3/4 cups Self Raising Flour 
1/4 cup Plain Flour
1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
3/4 cup packed Brown Sugar
2 ripe bananas mashed
2 eggs
1/2 cup Milk

Mash bananas in a bowl.
Melt butter and cool. 
Sift flours together in another  
bowl with cinnamon. Mix together well.
Wisk eggs and milk together 
and add to bananas, 
make a well in the flour mix and 
add banana mixture to the flour. 
Mix well until combined. 
Add any other fruit, chocolate or nuts and mix in well.

Pour into a bar tin, greased and lined with baking paper,
[they are ok as muffin if you have mixture left too] and bake 
at 180 degrees for about 50 mins.
