- 280g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 120g Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference cinnamon sugar
- 100g unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 2 large eggs
- 4 very ripe bananas
- 80ml milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
Mmmmmm. There is something so comforting for me about cinnamon and when you add banana, it’s epic. This recipe is amazing and produces the most moist, sweet banana bread I have ever tasted. And it’s so simple to make too. If you’ve got some bananas on the side that are going a bit black and you’re not sure what to do with them, give this a bake! I promise you won’t regret it!
While the butter and sugar is creaming nicely, mash the bananas until they slightly resemble baby food…
Add the eggs one at a time. Then, into the creamed butter, sugar and egg add the mashed banana, milk and vanilla and mix together. (Again, I know it doesn’t look tasty at this point but stay with me and the smell makes up for it!)
Once your mix is made, you will need to put it into a greased loaf tin (9 x 4”) You need to put half of the batter into the tin, then a generous helping of Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference cinnamon sugar, then the rest of the batter. This means the sugar will melt in between the two layers of batter and will taste fabulous!
Once baked, take it out of the tin and leave to cool on a wire rack. When this is cooling you need to make a glaze for the bread. I’ve used 50g banana icing sugar and a teaspoon of water. (Or you can use normal icing sugar and replace the water for some banana flavouring) and when the bread has cooled, pour the glaze over the bread and top with a sprinkling of the Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference cinnamon sugar!
It smells amazing and tastes even better!! Perfect with a nice cup of tea for elevenses or to accompany your dessert table!
