Half cup sugar ( I like to use raw or brown sugar)
Half cup butter
Half teaspoon bicarbonate soda (dissolve in a bit of water)
2 eggs
2 cups SR flour
2 small bananas mashed (mine were brown ones from the fridge)
Few drops of vanilla (I like to use many many drops)

Cream the butter and sugar
Add the eggs and beat
Then add the bananas and bicarb
Then fold in the flour
Bake in a loaf tin oven for approx 40mins or if you split the mixture into 2 tins approx 20-25 mins

Last night I was lazy and threw everything in the bowl and mixed it with a fork and to be honest the cake worked out better than ever !!

Banana Bread

My favourite Jamie Oliver Recipe so far…

So last week I was so sick with the flu, the good news is I got a lot of me time , time in bed and TV time.

Bad news is it started to get me down.. too much of anything isn’t good, its all about balance right?

But anyway, while I was channel surfing, I stopped to watch one of Jamie’s quick 15 min meals. This guy makes everything look so quick & easy and adds in a lot of handy tips along the way.

I’m looking forward to trying this recipe and thought I would share it in the meantime.

I’ve included the link below to watch the video
