My New Years Resolution was to waste less food. Every Saturday I used to throw away at least two carrier bags of uneaten, out of date food, mostly fruit and vegetables. So my plan was to buy less and eat more and avoid the wastage situation.
Today, I walked passed the fruit bowl and saw a bunch of pesky bananas poking out. Although not instantly recognised as bananas by their cheetah-like skins and squidgy texture. I picked them out, the thought of eating four bananas before my shopping arrived in 20 minutes was unthinkable. So, I set about making banana bread. Don’t be worried about the bananas being too old, mine were seriously old and black (see below).
What I used:
Four, dodgy looking bananas, 250g of caster sugar, two eggs, 250g plain flour, two teaspoons of baking powder and 120g of milk chocolate chips.
What I did:
I chopped up the bananas and wisked with the sugar until fluffly. I then added the eggs, one at at time with a tablespoon of flour. I then sieved in my flour with the baking powder and folded together. I added the chocolate and folded gently.
Once folded, I poured the mixture into a lined loaf tin and baked at 190 for 50 minutes.
After you’ve taken from the oven, allow to rest for five minutes in the tin before turning out on to a wire rack to cool. Once cooled, make yourself a cuppa and indulge!
