Banana Bread Day

Banana Bread Day falls on 23rd February 2022 this year, and here at Tapside we couldn’t think of a better way to beat the winter weather blues  than a thick slice of fresh baked banana bread with a delicious cup of Espré coffee.


  • 140g butter, softened, plus extra for the tin
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 140g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 50g icing sugar
  • handful dried banana chips, for decoration

Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4

Butter a 2lb loaf tin and line the base and sides with baking parchment.

Cream 140g softened butter and 140g caster sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add 2 beaten large eggs with a little of the 140g flour.

Method Continued – 

Fold in the remaining flour, 1 tsp baking powder and 2 mashed bananas.

Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for about 50 mins, or until cooked through. Check the loaf at 5-min intervals from around 30-40 mins in the oven by testing it with a skewer (it should be clean when removed), as the time may vary depending on the shape of your loaf tin.

Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove to a cooling tray.

Mix 50g icing sugar with 2-3 tsp water to make a runny icing. Drizzle the icing across the top of the cake and decorate with a handful of banana chips.
