Easy Vegan Banana Bread

My loaf fresh out of the oven

This banana bread is so simple and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes using storecupboard ingredients. I’ve used cups to cut down on washing up for this recipe.
Makes 1 large loaf (2 lb tin)
3 large bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups plain flour (wheat flour, or 1 1/4 cups gluten free plain flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sunflower oil
1/2 cup light brown soft sugar
1/3 cup milk (you can use soya or rice milk to make this cake vegan)
Optional extra
1/2 cup sultanas, walnuts, chocolate chips or cranberries
  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/ Gas Mark 3
  2. Grease and line a 2lb large loaf tin
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a large bowl
  4. Whisk the oil and sugar together in a separate bowl. Add the mashed bananas and milk and combine evenly
  5. Add the dry ingredients and fold in gently. 
  6. If you are adding any extras such as dried fruit or nuts, add them now and stir to combine evenly
  7. Pour the batter into the loaf tin and place in the oven. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes.
