Banana Bread

Banana Bread. I know there are a lot of recipes for this. 

I have been making this about once a month for a couple of years and know the recipe off by heart. Just wanted to see how it went in the CC. Loved the fact that I could do it all (apart from baking of course) in the one bowl.

When I first made it I creamed the sugar and butter in the mixmaster, mashed the bananas in the food processor and then mixed in a bowl. Got sick of all that so ended up using melted butter from the microwave and mixing all by hand.

The CC did it so quickly. It turned out lovely

125 grams butter
2/3 cup of white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour
1 cup self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
2 tablespoons caraway seeds (or you can use chopped walnuts or whatever you like)
