Banana bread recipe (for 8 slices)


  • 200g on ripe banana
  • 200g self-rising flour (or all-purpose with 1 teaspoon of baking powder)
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter – we used Skippy, it’s nice and creamy
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of maple syrup


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C / 350F / thermostat 4.
  2. Mash the banana with a fork or put it in a mug in the microwave for 1 minute so that it becomes mushy.
  3. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well blended.
  4. Line a small cake mold (or any other mold in your possession) and pour the mixture into it.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and crisp on top and cooked through in the middle.
  6. Slice and enjoy.

Service suggestions

Eat hot and straight away.

This banana bread isn’t too sweet, so it’s delicious with salted butter on top.

You can also spread on jam for a fruity and sweet touch.

And if you think you have it for the pudding, serve it with vanilla ice cream and an extra dollop of peanut butter. Skippy is available in a Smooth, Super Crunch or Choc Chip swirl.
