Banana Bread/Cake/Muffins


There’s nothing better than a one bowl bake that can be adapted into a variety of shapes and sizes. This basic banana recipe can be made any way you like it and turned into bread, cake, muffins or even a bundt with caramel sauce. The choice is yours.


  • 5 ripe bananas, mashed

  • 125ml light olive oil

  • 2 eggs, at room temperature

  • 1 egg yolk, at room temperature

  • 300g brown sugar

  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

  • 225g self-raising flour


Preheat oven to 180ºC. Grease your chosen tin (loaf, muffin, bundt, round springform) with baking spray.

Place the mashed banana, oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl and combine. Add the flour and mix until combined.

Pour the banana mixture into your chosen tin.

Bake for 45 minutes to one hour, or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Allow to cool in the tin.

TIP Eat on the same day as baking to enjoy it at its best or toast later in the week and serve with a dollop of butter.
