“1 Fork, 1 Bowl, 1 Banana” Bread

My sister (the one who lives in Canada) sent me an email with a very interesting recipe for a banana bread.  This recipe is so easy, people, it should be a party trick!!

 All you need is a fork, a bowl and a few ingredients:

 “Going Bananas” Bread

 3 or 4 bananas

1/3 cup melted butter

1 cup of sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 1/2 cups flour

  • Set the oven to 180°C, and grease a small loaf tin. 
  • Mash the bananas in the bowl with the fork; 
  • add the melted butter, mix in; 
  • add the sugar, mix; 
  • add the egg, beat into the mix well; 
  • add the vanilla essence, mix; 
  • sprinkle the bicarb over the mix, whisk in well; 
  • add the flour, and mix in;
  • pour into the loaf tin, and bake until done – it took over an hour to bake.

It literally is that easy – you only need one fork and one bowl, so the washing up was negligible too!

It’s a lovely moist little banana loaf, went down a treat with butter and a cup of coffee!  It’s now the  only banana bread we bake.
