Hi everyone. I recently made some delicious banana bread... And wanted to share the recipe with ya'll. It has no added butter or oil -only 1/2 cup of caster sugar!!! You can use wholemeal flour instead for added goodness!


2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
3/4 cup (125g) sultanas (or pitted dates - <sugar!)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup (250ml) reduced fat milk
1 cup mashed banana (about 2 large ripe bananas)


Preheat oven to 180°C. Line the base and sides of a 23cm x 13cm loaf pan with non-stick baking paper.

Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in sugar and sultanas.

Combine eggs, milk and bananas in a large jug. Whisk with a fork, until well combined. Using a large metal spoon, stir egg mixture into dry ingredients, until well combined.

Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve lightly buttered, or toasted.

15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

lauren - thank you so much for the recipe - i made it this afternoon & it's delish!

you'd never know that it was low in sugar. i left out the sultanas (my bf doesn't like them!) and made it with wholemeal flour.
