Cafe Style Banana Bread

I cannot think of a person that I know who doesn’t love a good banana bread, especially the beautifully dense ones you buy at the cafes. I love a good banana bread such as this one to accompany my morning coffee for breakfast or with my tea in the afternoon.  While the original recipe is made in the Thermomix, I have converted it here for those who wish to make it the traditional way. This bread is best eaten fresh or grilled with melted butter on top and be warned – you will have to share with the little ones as they love it too.

NOTES AND VARIATIONS

The oven I used when making this bread was not fan-forced so please adjust your ovens accordingly if you have one . Even then, I like to check the bread at the 45 minute mark by sticking a fork into the bread; if no batter comes out with the fork then you will know your bread has been cooked on the inside.
