My Easy Banana Bread Recipe!

Hey beaut's!

Arhhh banana bread, oh how I love you he he! Despite being a huge lover of banana bread I rarely make it because I never have any banana's left that are over ripe (we always eat them too quikcly you see), but I over bought some banana's this week in the hope to have a couple left to use and here we are... with a banana bread recipe! In my recipe I like to use light brown sugar and a tiny bit of cinnamon, this gives the bread the most amazing caramel-banana-y flavour and wow it's immense!
What You Will Need
140g butter
140g light brown sugar
2 large eggs or 3 medium
140g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
half tsp cinnamon
2 very ripe bananas mashed
50g icing sugar

How To
1. Firstly pre-heat your oven to gas mark 4 /180 and line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper.
2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until it's whippy and fluffy, then slowly add the eggs one at a time. 
3. Then fold in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and bananas and pour into the loaf tin and bake for about 30 minutes until a skewer comes out clean. One thing I love to do just before I put my batter in the oven to cook  is to sprinkle a little bit more light brown sugar across the top, this gives an amazing crunch to the top of the loaf once its cooked!
4. Once the banana bread is completely cool, mix the icing sugar with a couple of teaspoons of cold water to make a runny icing, then drizzle the icing across the top of the loaf anyway you like, you could also decorate with some sliced banana on the top if you wish and voila!!!
And there you have it beaut's, a super easy but very very tasty banana bread which hardly requires any skill and it's made up of pretty basic ingredients! You definitely have to try this one out if your a lover of all things banana'y he he!
