  • 3 bananas (large, ripe)
  • 80 g sunflower oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 100 g soft light brown sugar
  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 60 g chopped nuts (e.g. walnuts or pecans)


  • Pre-heat oven: 190°C / 170°C (fan) / Gas Mark 5 / 375°F
  • Peel the large bananas and mash them with a fork in a mixing bowl until no large lumps remain.
  • Mix in the oil and brown sugar, stirring until combined.
  • Sift the flour into the mix, adding the baking powder and cinnamon and folding these in well.
  • Then add the dried nuts and stir until just spread throughout, without over mixing.
  • Bake in a greased, lined 2lb loaf tin for 35-40 minutes until a skewer comes out clean. Check and cover with foil for the remaining time if the loaf is browning after 25mins, and again after a further 5mins if not.
  • Allow to cool a little in the tin before removing and slicing.
