Caramel Banana Topping
Banana Bread
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C (fan-forced). Grease two 14 x 23cm (top measurement) loaf pans. Line bases and sides with baking paper
  2. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed for 5-7 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition
  3. Sift flours, soda and mixed spice and fold into cake batter along with mashed banana. Divide evenly among prepared pans. Smooth over tops
  4. Bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove. Stand in pans 30 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool
Tips & Hints:
  • Bananas are best when they are over-ripe.
  • Mixed spice can be replaced with ground cinnamon, if preferred.
  • Plain banana bread will keep for up to one week, stored in an airtight container.
  • To freeze, wrap loaf tightly in cling film and place inside an airtight container or bag. Label and freeze for up to 2 months.
  • Defrost in refrigerator overnight, slice and serve.
  • Alternatively, slice and warm in microwave for 30 seconds on HIGH.
Caramel Banana Topping
  1. To make caramel bananas, peel and slice bananas into 1cm thick diagonal slices
  2. Melt half the butter in a medium frypan over medium heat. Add bananas and cook until edges turn golden brown. Remove from the pan
  3. Add remaining butter, sugar and cream and stir until sugar is dissolved. Gently boil for 1-2 minutes, or until thickened slightly. Remove from heat
  4. Arrange bananas over the top of one banana bread and spoon sauce over the top. Serve with extra sauce and cream or ice cream
Tips & Hints:
  • This recipe makes enough caramelised bananas to top one loaf. Double the recipe to top two loaves.
