Mini Banana Nut Loaves

Whilst we were in Florida I found the most delicious banana nut bread in Bob Evans so I had to have a go at making some. I adapted a recipe and made these this afternoon and boy are they delicious!!

Banana Loaf
250g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
 115g butter
115g soft light brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 bananas
40g chopped hazelnuts
2 tbsp milk

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 23x13cm loaf tin or 10 mini loaf tins.
In a large bowl, combine flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder.

In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten and fold in chopped hazelnuts. Pour mixture into prepared loaf tin or mini loaf tins.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes for a loaf tin and 25 mins for mini loaf tins and until a knife inserted into centre of the loaf comes out clean. Leave to cool in tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire cooling rack.

If you can wait until they are cool, eat and enjoy!!
