Yield: 1 servings
|5||Ripe/over ripe banana's; about|
|¼ cup||Sugar; (I use less, depends on how ripe the banana's are)|
|1 teaspoon||Vanilla essence|
|2 cups||Flour; (I use wholemeal)|
|2 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|½ teaspoon||Baking soda|
And I normaly throw a couple of handfuls of dried fruit in.
What you need is the ubiquitous banana bread, this stuff is packed full of energy, taste is quite easy to make but you do have to bake it.
Ok, blend the banana's, sugar and vanilla togther until smooth. In another bowl mix all the other bits, then add the wet to the dry, give it a good stir and dump into a cake tin. And place into an oven at gas mk 5 for about 1 hour.
Dried fruit optional. Works with less banana's and a tin of apples blended.
Before placing in the oven a light sprinkle of brown sugar works well. Make sure the mixture is all damp before placing in tin. After you get it out of the oven leave it for a while (10 mins) and gently leaver out with a strong knife, this way you don't have to coat the tin.
This is great if you do a sport as it will provide you with a high glycemic rate to give an instant boost.
If you make this often then it really is fast to make and very hard to get wrong.
