Treat Yourself Monday ….. A Banana and Honey Loaf Disaster

Unfortunately this week, Harry’s Banana and Honey Loaf, has suffered a baking disaster!!!

hmmmmm maybe it needed longer in the over….. or maybe the bananas were too ripe!!!

However, here is the recipe; why not try it at home and send Harry your pictures…


Banana and Honey Loaf

25g self-raising flour
¼ level teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
100g butter
225g bananas
100g caster sugar
Grated rind of 1 lemon
2 large eggs
6 tablespoons thick pale honey

Preheat the oven to 160oC/fan 140oC/Gas 3. Lightly grease a 900g/2lb loaf tin then line the base with baking parchment.

Measure the flour and nutmeg into a large bowl and rub in the butter using your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Peel and mash the bananas and stir into the flour mixture, along with the sugar, lemon rind, eggs and honey. Beat well until evenly mixed, then turn into the prepared tin and level the surface.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 ¼ hours or until a fine skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cover the teabread loosely with foil during the end of the cooking time if it is browning too much. Leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes then turn out, peel off the parchment and finish cooling on a wire rack.


However, we have been saved by a lovely cupcake contribution, from two very special boys. Who have even iced our names on….. Well Done Kyle and Kieran
