  • 5 large ripe/overripe bananas about 900g – 1kg unpeeled weight
  • 50 g butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 115 g caster sugar*
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 115 g plain flour


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  • Grease a 20cm round dish.
  • Mash the bananas into a pulp.
  • Mix in the melted butter, vanilla extract, sugar, beaten egg and sifted flour.
  • Pour into the dish and bake for 45 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve with cream or vanilla ice cream.



*With regard to the amount of sugar in this recipe, many readers and indeed myself, have found that you can cut down on the amount as very ripe bananas have a higher sugar content than just ripe bananas. As this is such a popular recipe I'm not going to adapt the amount as this would be confusing for returning visitors. But I would say you could reduce the amount to nearly half if you wish.
