Banana & maple syrup bread

Afternoon tea is ready!! It is as easy as throwing everything in one bowl and beating. It is similar to my banana bread recipe but the added maple syrup gives it a lovely taste.

It is perfect for school lunches as it is a little firmer than a cake and will hold together nicely while your kids thrash it around in their bags.



  • 125g butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 lge bananas, mashed (1 cup)
  • 2 ½ cups self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda 

1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line loaf tin (approx. 15cm x 25cm) with baking paper.

2. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar & maple syrup. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.

3. Add eggs & beat.

4. Add banana, flour & bicarb soda. Beat until well combined. 

5. Pour into loaf tin and bake for 1 hour or until cooked through. Check if centre is cooked by inserting skewer. If it comes out clean, the cake is cooked.
