The only time I eat bananas is when I make Queen Elizabeth Hotel Beaver Club Banana bread recipe. The Chef gave it to me over 30 years ago. Grouprecipes.com has it, except it doesn't include the prep step of lining the pans with a cut-to-fit piece of a brown paper grocery bag liberally coated with softened butter. I usually trim the edges once I get the pan. I love this recipe. It is a sticky banana bread.

Coat both sides of the paper.

The one I know is quite traditional and goes well with butter as it is not that sweet, I got it from a site somewhere years ago, fall season is perfect for it - at least to my taste. I guess if you want it sweeter you can add more sugar - brown preferentially as it will cook crunchier than loaf one - which is a s**** anyway. On the other hand, if you want that sugar taste from the bananas the secret is always to let it overripe a lot as far as I know. Sometimes I don't have the patience for that as well as sometimes you can lose half a banana to get another half in the right shape for the recipe is not like they will overripe evenly.

 

Melted low-fat dairy spread, to grease

265g (1 3/4 cups) self-raising flour

40g (1/4 cup) plain flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

140g (2/3 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar

125ml (1/2 cup) skim milk

2 eggs, lightly whisked

50g butter, melted, cooled

2 overripe medium bananas, mashed
