Banana Bread (Vegan)


3 large ripe bananas (they can be black)

75g vegetable oil or sunflower oil (in weight)

plus extra for greasing

100g brown sugar

225g plain flour and 3 heaped teaspoons of baking powder

OR 225g self-raising flour and 2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder

1-2 handfuls of chopped walnuts

3 teaspoons of cinnamon powder (optional)


Heat your oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. 

Mash 3 large ripe/very ripe/black peeled bananas with a fork, then mix well with 75g vegetable or sunflower oil and 100g brown sugar.

Add the plain flour and baking powder and 3 tsp cinnamon, and combine well. Add the chopped walnuts if using.

Bake in a greased, lined 2lb loaf tin for 20 minutes. Check and cover with foil if the cake is browning.

Bake for another 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

Allow to cool a little before slicing. It's delicious freshly baked, but develops a lovely gooey quality the day after.
