Kids in the Kitchen – Banana Bread

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen were we share our recipes that we have made with our kids. This week we had some bananas looking distinctly brown so I decided to make Banana Bread with the Little Man. First though, I like to say thank you to those that shared last week.

From Tickle Fingers we had two posts, a yummy Healthy Breakfast that you can prepare the night before and no less than Five Vegetarian Meals, all of them mouthwatering.

Next we have some delicious looking Cheese and Pesto Bread from Mum, M and More. I really have to try this, I do love bread.

Thank you for joining in, I hope you will join us again. All posts are shared on Twitter and our Pinterest Board, which is a great place to go for inspiration.

The linky is open for a month and you can join in as many times as you wish, old posts or new.

Banana Bread


  • 285g plain flour
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 110g unsalted butter
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 85ml buttermilk
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 very ripe bananas
If you don’t have buttermilk you can use ordinary milk at room temperature and just add a tsp of lemon juice, this is what I used. 


First grease a loaf tin and preheat the oven to 180C/ gas mark 4
Mash the bananas in a bowl 
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy
Add the bananas, eggs, buttermilk (or substitute) and vanilla extract to butter mixture and mix well.
Add the soda and the salt to the flour and then sift them all into the butter mixture
Fold in gently
Pour the mixture into the tin
Bake for about an hour until well risen and golden
Allow to cool in tin before turning out.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
