Ingredients

YOU WILL NEED
  • 1 packet Noshu 98% Sugar Free Vanilla Cupcake Mix
  • Electric mixer
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 sachet Noshu 98% Sugar Free Vanilla Cupcake Mix
  • 1 cup plain flour (or gluten free flour for a GF version)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 50 g softened butter or (Nuttelex for a dairy free version)
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 4 medium over-ripe bananas, mashed

Method

METHOD
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 170°C (160°C fan forced). Grease and line your loaf tin with baking paper.
MIX
  • 2
    In a medium mixing bowl stir together your Vanilla Cupcake Mix, plain flour, cinnamon, bicarb soda and salt. Set aside.
  • 3
    In a large mixing bowl beat together your butter for 3 minutes until fluffy. And 1 egg and half of your dry mix, then beat for a further 2 minutes. Add the second egg and beat for 1 more minute.
  • 4
    Add in the mashed bananas and mix for 1 minute. It's okay if the batter looks split at this point as it will come back together. Scrape down the sides of the bowl then add in the rest of the dry mix, and mix for 1 more minute until fully combined and fluffy. Pour batter into your prepared loaf tin.
BAKE
  • 5
    Place in preheated oven and bake for about 55 minutes before testing the banana bread with a skewer to see if it's cooked through.
  • 6
    If your bread is not fully cooked through (with the skewer coming out clean), bake for another 5–10 minutes. You'll know your bread is baked when it has risen, is golden brown and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  • 7
    Allow banana bread to cool on a wire rack before serving.
STORE
  • 8
    Best served fresh at room temperature or toasted with a generous amount of butter.
