Kim McCosker shared this recipe for classically delicious banana bread with Joan Hamburg today!
2 large, really ripe bananas
½ cup superfine sugar
1 cup mayonnaise
2 cups self-rising flour
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line an 8-inch loaf pan with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas. Stir in the sugar. Add the mayonnaise, flour and a pinch of sea salt and light mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the pan. Bake until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn onto a rack. Enjoy it warm straight from the oven or lightly toasted.
Optional: Add 2 tablespoons maple syrup when mixing the bananas and sugar.
Tip: You can toast the bread -- it’s yummy served with a little butter or crème fraîche and berries
