Have some bananas about to go bad in the pantry? Whip up an easy, one bowl Cool Runnings Banana Bread that will have your friends and family wanting more and more!
4 very ripe medium size bananas, peeled
1 ½ tsp Cool Runnings Chinese Five Spice
1 tsp Cool Runnings Banana Essence
¾ cup British Class Golden Brown Sugar
¼ cup salted butter, melted
1 ¼ cups self-rising all purpose flour
1 ½ cups walnuts
1 cup sultana saisins or chocolate chips
Butter, for serving
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the bananas for 1-2 minutes until they are smooth.
Add the Cool Runnings Chinese Five Spice, Cool Runnings Banana Essence, and British Class Golden Brown Sugar into banana mixture and beat until well incorporated.
Add the eggs and butter to the mixture and beat until blended.
Add the self rising all purpose flour and beat on low until just incorporated. Do not over beat.
With a spatula fold in the nuts and raisins (or chocolate chips).
Pour mixture into an oiled baking pan (9.25” x 5.25” x 2.75”) and bake for 60-70 minutes.
Check at 60 minutes by putting a toothpick into the centre of the loaf, if it pulls out clean with no batter sticking to it, the bread is ready.
Remove the loaf from the oven and allow it to cool down before slicing.
Slather with butter and enjoy!
