Feeling a Little Bananaish?

Hmm, I have ummed and arghed over this because it’s not really a bread.

Delicious BUT not really breadish…….

I looked OVER many many recipes as I thought maybe I was missing something but nope, all cakey like recipes.

My question is this, “Why is this called a bread ? “

David Lebovitz asked the same question


and I am sure many others have as well.

Will this remain a mystery? I will hunt down the answer…It is now annoying me.

But until then let’s get Cakey???

As no matter what we call it, it is still very very yummy……..

 I have never met anyone who doesn’t like Banana cake/bread.

Plus it takes no effort to make at all……

Get those banana!! the more rotten the better!!

You will need:

3 black and spotty bananas
100 g softened butter

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Mash up the banana with a fork.
Cream butter and sugar, then add egg and vanilla.

Bake for 40-50 minutes or until bread/cake springs back on touch.
