I’m sure this is probably a obvious tip but instead of throwing over ripe bananas in the bin, make banana bread with them! It’s an easy recipe to make and there is a lot of mixing to do so its a good one to get children to help with. It costs around £1.25 to make a loaf size.
150g unsalted butter, softened (plus extra for greasing)
150g self raising flour
150g caster sugar
2 eggs, whisked
1tsp baking powder
2-3 over ripe bananas, mashed
- Pre heat oven to 180C. Grease either a cake or bread tin.
- Cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in eggs and half of the flour. Stir in the rest of the flour, baking powder and banana. Put mixture in the greased tin, smooth it out to make it even.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
