Thanks to the Junior League of Columbus Georgia for allowing us to use this recipe which we have adapted for our use.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup flavourless oil such as rice bran
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mashed banana
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- pinch salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 cup buttermilk (can use yoghurt)
Preheat oven to 150 C. Beat sugar and oil together.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Then mix in bananas which you have blended or mashed to a fine pulp.
Sift flour and salt and add to mixture alternately with baking soda dissolved in buttermilk/yoghurt.
Pour into a lined 26cm loaf pan.
Bake for 30 minutes then increase heat to 175 C.
Bake another 35-40 minutes. Insert a skewer into centre to test for doneness. The skewers should come out clear when the loaf is cooked.
