What better way to use up over ripe bananas than with this Thermomix Banana Bread. Moist and squishy, it tastes delicious toasted with lashings of butter.
A really easy recipe for banana bread which takes very little time and effort to make in the Thermomix. If you have a stash of over ripe bananas then this is a great way to use them up.
I like to enjoy it warm straight out of the oven or popped in a toaster for a few minutes to have as breakfast with some berries and a drizzle of honey. It also freezes really well so any leftover can be stored in the freezer for another day.
Thermomix Banana Bread
- 40 g butter plus extra to grease
- 160 g soft light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 medium sized ripe bananas roughly mashed
- 180 g plain flour
- 2½ tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
Turn the oven on to 170 C (150 C fan forced) and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
Weigh the butter into the TM bowl and melt 40 sec/50/speed 4. Scrape down the bowl.
Crack in the eggs and brown sugar and mix for 30 sec/speed 4, scrape down the bowl and mix again for 30 sec/speed 4.
Add the mashed bananas, plain flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt and gently mix for 3 sec/speed 4. Mix the rest in with a spatula being careful not to over mix otherwise it will be dense.
Pour the batter into the tin and bake for about 45 minutes - 1 hour until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out on to a rack to cool completely.
The banana bread can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
