The main principle of baking banana bread is to ensure your bananas are very ripe. When I make my banana bread I prefer to keep the bananas quite chunky so I chop them with a knife rather than mashing them with a fork. So begin by doing this. In a large bowl, add your; bananas, sugar, butter and egg and mix. Then add your vanilla extract, plus your baking powder and salt. Last of all, fold in the flour until just incorporated. Pour into a buttered and lined loaf tin and pop in the oven for approximately an hour. And it really is as easy as that! Good for a first time baker, like my boyfriend!
You can really get creative with what you put on top. Most people go for chocolate spread, cream cheese frosting. Sophie suggests a lick of butter! However, I like mine plain and simple - all by itself!
