Banana Loaf Recipe – Unique Fatso

Photo by Unique Fatso


  • 4 Very ripe bananas
  • 110g of soft light brown sugar (I use muscovado sugar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 120ml/ ½ Cup of sunflower oil
  • 225g/ 1 ½ Cup of plain flour
  • 1 tsp of bicarbonate of (baking) soda
  • Golden flaxseeds (I’ve also used pumpkin seeds, and that was delightful.)


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan) and line a loaf tin with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Mash the bananas roughly with a fork (I like to mash them 2 into small pieces, then add the 3rd banana and mash it lightly, so it has bigger chunks in the mix.)
  3. Add the sugar, eggs and oil, then whisk together (use an electric whisk if possible.)
  4. Next, you must sieve the flour and bicarbonate of soda into the bowl.
  5. Scrape the mixture into the loaf tin.
  6. Slice the remaining banana and place on the top of your mixture. Now sprinkle a pinch of golden flaxseeds over the top.
  7. and bake for 55 minutes (I tend to set a timer once I’ve placed it into the oven.) When you remove your loaf, be sure to insert a skewer or knife down the middle – to ensure that it has baked through.)
  8. Transfer your loaf to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
