Going Bananas

I've just made my second banana bread in just over a week and boy is it yummy! So yummy I thought I would share the recipe with you. I'm not sure where I got the recipe from so apologies for not giving credit where it is due.

100g butter (unsalted, soft)
140g light muscovado/brown sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 ripe bananas mashed (depending on size of bananas)
50g pecans, roughly chopped (or any nuts of choice)
50g raisins or choc chips
150ml buttermilk or crème fraîche
280g plain or wholemeal flour
1 tsp bicarbonate soda

Cooking time 75 minutes
Oven temp: with fan 160 degrees C/without fan 180 degrees C

*cream butter and sugar
*beat eggs and add gradually to butter/sugar mixture
*stir in mashed bananas, pecans, raisins and buttermilk
*Sift flour and bicarb soda on top of banana mixture
*fold in, don't over mix
*spoon into tin and level top

It is soooo easy and very tasty. I have done this recipe three times and haven't have ANY problems. I have done choc chips, pecans and bananas....and raisins, pecans and bananas.....and this time I did it with wholewheat flour and all have been great. I always use low fat crème fraîche as I like healthy-ish x

Miss G got home from school yesterday and I sent her up stairs to get dressed and this is how she came down! I think the odd socks really set the outfit off!
