Banana Loaf

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 50 minutes | Serves: 12


  • 2 to 3 very ripe bananas, mashed 
  • 75g butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups Edmonds Gluten-free flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

*  Please check all ingredients are gluten-free before proceeding


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°.
  2. Spray a 4 x 8 loaf pan with cooking spray or rub with butter.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until smooth.
  4. Add the baking soda to the mashed bananas.
  5. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  6. Stir in the sugar, salt, eggs, and pure vanilla extract.
  7. Mix in the flour.
  8. Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan.
  9. Bake on the centre rack for 50 minutes to 1 hour (or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean). Please watch your banana bread because all ovens are different.
  10. Cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!
  11. Store in an airtight container.

I adapted this recipe from here. I also added thin slices of extra banana to the top to make it look more interesting. You can easily add chocolate chips to make it sweeter, as well.
