Banana Loaf # 2

I was down to the last remaining two (2) slices of this new recipe before I remembered that I needed to write up this recipe.

So before I forget, again, this recipe uses the same ingredients with the addition of baking soda as in my Banana Cranberry Cake.

Ingredients: makes 2 loaves

3 ripe bananas (makes about 1 cup or slightly more depending on the size of the bananas)

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 1/2 cups plain flour

3 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries

3 eggs

3/4 cup cooking oil


  • Mash the bananas with the baking soda. Leave aside till ready to use.
  • Beat the eggs, sugar & cooking oil till light & frothy. Light as in light in colour & texture, Frothy as in bubbly.
  • Mix the flour, salt & baking powder together in a separate bowl or like me I put it in a plastic bag (reusable!) and shake it all up to mix.
  • Add the mashed bananas to the egg mixture. Stir it up.
  • Add the walnuts & cranberries. Stir it up.
  • Add in the flour by portions, making sure the flour is incorporated (mixed well) with the wet ingredients.
  • Pour into two (2) greased loaf pans.
  • Bake in preheated oven 180ºC (375ºF) for 40-50 minutes.
