Comfort Food – Banana Bread

Hedgerow Vintage Blog & Shop

I think fruit loaves are the perfect comfort food for Autumn. They are easy to make and are very forgiving when it comes to baking. This is a recipe I use for Banana Bread that never lets me down, and is ideal when you have a few bananas that are over ripe and you don’t want to throw them away. You can also tweak it really easily by adding additional fruits and spices, I sometimes add coconut, sultanas, carrots and will play around with cinnamon, ginger, mixed spice and nutmeg. There is also a lovely Pumpkin Loaf version of this, I will be posting a little nearer All Hallows.

Ingredients

  • 100g (4oz) butter, softened
  • 175g (6oz) brown sugar
  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon or mixed spice
