Foodie Friday | Banana Bread

DSC 0619 1

I am finally getting around to posting my banana bread recipe that I promised weeks ago, but I am apologizing in advance for the pictures, the boys where in such a food rush that they just couldn’t wait for me to do my photo shoot before digging into the bread and I ended up telling them to just take pictures before they devoured the entire loaf, yes people this bread is so good it doesn’t last really long.

Banana Bread


  • 125 ml baking Margarine
  • 250 ml Sugar
  • 15 ml Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 500 ml Cake Flour
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2.5 ml Baking Powder
  • 3.75 ml Baking Soda
  • 2.5 ml Lemon Juice
  • 125 ml Milk
  • 5 ml Vanilla Essence – I like using just a couple of drops of Vanilla Extract
  • 4 – 6 Mashed Bananas


Cream the butter and sugar together with the oil beat the eggs in really well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until everything is mixed well. Bake at 180°C for 45 minutes.  This recipe makes 2 medium sized loafs. You can add nuts to the recipe but my family didn’t like that so much.

Baking is love made visible
