Foodie Post: Banana Bread

When the temperatures are below freezing, nothing beats being in a warm kitchen baking. And one of my favourite things to bake this time of year is banana bread. I have a couple of recipes I use. One is quite dense, this one is a little lighter but just as scrummy! Fresh out the oven, with a lick of butter and a cup of tea - nothing beats it. Plus it's a great way of using up over-ripe banana's!

You Need:

1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarb of soda
4 tbsp butter
1/2 cup yogurt
1 egg (large)
2 large bananas mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract

Bake for 45 mins, or until a knife comes out clean! Leave to cool for 10 mins, then eat away!
