Pieday Friday – My recipe for Banana Bread Bites

In honour of #TheGreatBloggerBakeOff, which is taking place each Wednesday to coincide with The Great British Bake Off, I have decided to move my regular Pieday Friday recipe column to Wednesdays for the duration of the series. I thought that two recipes each week might be a little too difficult even for me to achieve, so it’s now one recipe each week, on a Wednesday, based on the theme set on GBBO. This week it is bread and of course I didn’t just make a standard loaf. Oh no, I went for it with a big batch of banana bread and customised the recipe that I found on the BBC website by adding juicy sultanas and making banana bread ‘bites’ using a square muffin baking tin, rather than a loaf. Here’s the recipe:

285g plain flour, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, ½ tsp salt, 110g butter, 225g caster sugar, 2 free-range eggs, 4 ripe bananas, 85ml of milk mixed with 1½ tablespoon of lemon juice, two handfuls of sultanas, 1 tsp vanilla extract

Here’s how I did it:

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Cream the butter and sugar together before adding the 2 eggs, mashed bananas, milk and vanilla extract and mixing well. Sieve the flour, barcarbonate and salt on top of the sugar mixture and fold in. Grease a muffin tin and spoon the banana mixture in. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes, or until risen and golden-brown. Eat warm with a dollop of ice cream, or leave to cool and pop in your packed lunch box for tea break!
