  • Line a 2lb/900g loaf tin with silicon paper, leaving plenty over the edge to 'tent' the top.
  • Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg a little at a time beating mixture well.
  • Add the mashed bananas and beat together well. Stir in the flour and nuts.
  • Pour into the lined bread tin. Lift the excess silicon paper and make a loose tent over the top of the mixture to prevent burning.
  • Bake at gas 4, 180 deg C. or 350 deg F for approx 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Check if cooked with a skewer. Remove from the oven when cooked, and cool in the silicon paper on a rack. I leave wrapped in the paper on to keep fresh.
