Banana Bread Recipe

Throwing away food not only ends up costing you more, it’s also bad for the environment. Our recipe for banana bread is simple, delicious, and the perfect way to use over-ripe bananas for a waste-free kitchen! 



  • 225g self raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 75g butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten
  • 100g walnuts, chopped
  • 350g peeled bananas, mashed
  • 1 banana, halved lengthways for decoration (optional)
  • 100g chocolate, chopped (optional)



  • 1 kg loaf tin
  • Wire rack



Step 1

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees, gas mark 4, and grease and line the base of the loaf tin.

Step 2

Lightly mix the self raising flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

Step 3

Cream together the butter and sugar until this is pale and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs with a little flour.

Step 4

Mash the bananas, and fold these into the mixture with the remaining flour, chopped walnuts and chocolate.

Step 5

Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin. You may wish to halve a banana lengthways and lay the halves on top of the batter for decoration. Bake for 1 1/4 hours, then allow to cool on a wire rack before enjoying with a nice cuppa!
