Trump is president, there are people that still believe the earth is flat and influencers on instagram still think anyone gives a toss about their beauty routine. Gwen Stefanie was right – “this shit’s bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!” Well, when the world gives you bananas, make banana bread.


Preheat oven to 175 degrees celsius.

Grease and line a loaf tin with baking paper (my tin was 21cm x 11cm).

Put all your dry ingredients together in a food processor and whizz together.

Add wet ingredients and whizz until fully combined and batter is smooth.

Pour into loaf tin and bake for 40-45 minutes until cooked through (the old trick if skewer comes out clean works a treat!)

Let cool in tin, then turn out onto rack.
