|for a cute dessert bake in little bowls and pour custard on top just before serving.|
This was my Granny's recipe that I got out of her hand written recipe book. A book with her scrawling hand writing, some pages with stains and marks on the recipe as they were well loved and used often. This is one of them. And it really is a very good recipe. I have adapted it to be gluten free.
1 cup of sugar
1 vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
4 ripe bananas
2 cups gluten free flour
a pinch of salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon bicarb
1/2 cup of milk
Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in the eggs 1 by 1 until thoroughly incorporated.
Add the vanilla pod or essence.
Mash up the bananas well with a fork on a separate plate and then mix into the mixture.
Sift into the mixture the flour, salt and baking powder.
Mix the bicarb with a little of the milk and add to the mixture.
Now add the rest of the milk gradually and then beat the mixture thoroughly
Put into a greased and floured loaf tin (you can use a round cake tin if you don't have a loaf tin)
Bake at 180 degrees celcius for roughly 1 hour (check near the end)
Take out the oven and turn out of the tin after 10 min.
Leave to cool and then slice
Enjoy spread with butter and a cup of tea
