RECIPE – Moist Banana Bread

Banana bread, a classic treat which you can have for breakfast, as a snack or as a late night bite. I like mine super moist and with some walnuts for extra crunch.



  • 140g butter, plus a bit for greasing the tin
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 40g muscovado sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 140g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Sweet Freedom vanilla syrup
  • 2 very ripe brownish bananas
  • 85g chopped walnuts

For garnish:

  • Almond butter


  1. Leave your 140g butter out to soften or add to a pan and lightly heat till softened
  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4
  3. Grease a 2lb loaf tin with a bit of butter – I do this by placing a knob of butter on a sheet of kitchen roll and rubbing it over the inside of the tin
  4. Line the base and sides of the tin with baking parchment
  5. Start making your mixture: cream 140g butter and 140g caster sugar in a big bowl until fluffy
  6. Beat the 2 eggs in a small bowl and stir in slowly to the mixture
  7. In a separate bowl, weigh 140g flour and add some of it to the mixture and stir
  8. Fold in the remaining flour to the mixture and stir in 1 tsp baking powder, 40g muscovado sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla syrup and 85g walnuts
  9. In a separate bowl, mash the 2 bananas with a fork till softened
  10. Add the mashed bananas to the mixture
  11. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 30-40 mins until a skewer comes out clean – your skewer might still be a bit wet but this is normal 🙂
  12. Cool in the tin until ready for serving
  13. Chop into thick slices and serve with a spread of almond butter
