About this recipe
There are certain recipes that smell all over the house and this one is one of them! It is tempting to taste it even before it has cooled down! If you manage to be patient, then you will be rewarded as it gets better and better after one of 2 days. Maybe you can actually make 2:one to eat now "en catimini" and another one later in a wise way! You can vary the amount of sugar or bananas. You can also experience with almond flour. The great news: it is super healthy so you can eat it abusively! Make sure before the recipe that the butter has been removed from the fridge around 30min before the preparation to reach a smooth texture when you will mix it with the other ingredients.  You can toss in a cup of chopped nuts, raisins, or chocolate chips if you want, or put the batter into muffin tins and make banana nut muffins instead. You can even go a step further and make chocolate banana bread. I like to serve it for a special dessert with papaya ice cream.

1. Pre-heat the oven at 180C.

2. Beat together the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the vanilla.

3. Add the eggs one by one and mix well after each addition.

4. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the butter/sugar/egg mix.

5. Mash the bananas and add with the nuts to the mixture.

6. Pour into a small greased loaf or silicone mould.

7.Bake at 180C for 1 hour or until a toothpick or wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean..

8. Allow to cool down before removing from the mould and slice.

A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly.
