Who doesn't love the smell of banana bread baking in their oven? The smell makes me feel homely and smug. Smug in the " I made that gorgeous smell" sense.
The Wee Man and I have made banana bread a few times now and each time it seems to disappear more quickly than the last. Maybe it's magic? ;0)
I've adapted this recipe from a great blog called mywoklife. Go check it out.
Here's what you'll need:
125g Dairy and soya free spread (I use Pure Sunflower spread)
130g soft brown sugar
1tsp vanilla exract
2 tsps of Orgran No Egg whisked with 4 tbsp water
2 ripe bananas masked
50ml Non dairy or non soya milk (I use Oatly oat milk)
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
175g Gluten Free self raising flour ( I use Doves Farm)
1tsp Xanthan Gum
1tsp cinnamon (or less if you don't want it too cinnamoney)
1/ Preheat the oven to 180C
2/ Cream the dairy and soya free spread, the sugar and the vanilla extract.
3/ Add the Orgran No Egg mixure a bit at a time and mix together. Add the mashed banana and ensure they are all well combined.
4/ Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the milk.
5/ Sieve the flour and add the cinnamon and xanthan gum.
6/ Add the flour mixture and milk mixture to the creamed spread and sugar a bit at a time. Ensure the mixture is well combined.
7/ Pour the mixture into a greased loaf tin.
8/ Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45 mins.
This gets a big thumbs up from the Wee Man.
