Banana Bread

Post  mikeandb on 11.08.11 15:55

My wife made this bread yesterday using the following recipe,it is delicious.
75gm soft butter plus extra for greasing
4 ripe bananas peeled and mashed up
200gm soft brown sugar
1 egg beaten
1tbsp vanilla essence
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 pinch salt
170gm plain flower

Preheat the HO to 200C
Use a little butter to grease a bread tin measuring about 23cmx13cmx6cm

Pour the mashed bananas into a large mixing bowl.Mix in the butter,sugar,egg and vanilla extract. Add the bicarbonate of soda and salt and mix in the flour last

Pour into the prepared tin.Place the tin on the lower rack,fit the extender ring.
Bake for 50 minutes to an hour ( this will depend on the accuracy of your oven temperature setting,ours is not very accurate)Keep testing with thin knife or skewer until you are happy.It may take a little longer.

Remove from the oven allow to cool a little,remove from the tin,slice and serve with butter or spread.

I made this banana cake - smells delicious - looking forward to tasting it.

However, I did find I needed to cover it with foil about 20 minutes before the end of the cooking time, as the top was in danger of burning when the middle was still quite runny

edited to add - have discovered on taking it out of the tin, that the bottom of the cake is uncooked - despite the skewer coming out clean

Followed all the instuctions - what have I done wrong?

Hi Dolphin

HOs seem to vary quite a lot and it takes a little time to get familiar with what works for you.

I use the top rack with the extender in place where possible. This lets the hot air circulate underneath much better than the low rack. Pre-heating your oven for about 5 minutes also seems to help when baking just as you do with your 'big' oven.
With the heat coming from the top foil is a good idea to stop the top from burning. At least, being glass, you can see what's going on and avert disaster.
Sometimes reducing the heat and cooking for longer works better too.

I hope this helps Smile

Thankyou for these tips - but I did all the above - I preheated the oven, I used the extender ring, I put foil on top and turned the temp down when I noticed that the top was over browning but it still went wrong!

Hi Dolphin

Mike doesn't say what size his bananas were and I haven't personally tried this recipe but there can be a huge difference and this will make a big impact on the cooking time. It sounds like you were nearly there but it just needed a little longer to cook through.
Ovens seem to vary quite a lot too from messages from members. You didn't do anything wrong and will soon be confident with your particular oven.
