This is a simple banana loaf recipe to make and a fantastic way to use any leftover bananas and storecupboard ingredients. A delicious bake for afternoon tea served slightly warmed and smothered with butter.

 

Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Grease and base line a loaf tin.

Sift the flour, salt, cinnamon and Fairtrade caster sugar together in a large bowl. Thinly slice half a Fairtrade banana and reserve for the top. Mash the remaining banana's until fairly smooth and runny.

Make a well in the centre of the flour, add the banana, egg, butter and chopped Fairtrade vanilla pod. Mix well with a wooden spoon to make a thick cake mixture.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin, top with the banana slices and sprinkle over the Fairtrade demerara sugar. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, or until the top is golden and springs back when prodded gently with your finger.

Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack. When cold, serve in slices.
