Recipe: Banana & Walnut Bread

Who doesn’t love a good banana bread? =)

Banana & Walnut Bread

(I used a 25 cm x 14 cm cake tin, which gives you a bread of about 5-6 cm.)


100 g butter, softened (+ a little bit for greasing the cake tin)

140 g brown sugar

1 egg

225 g plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

4 bananas (the riper, the better!), mashed

90 g walnuts, chopped

3 tbsp milk


• Pre-heat oven to 180°C.

• Grease your cake tin & line its base with parchment paper.

• Mix softened butter with egg and sugar.

• Gradually add flour and baking powder to mixture.

• Add the mashed bananas, the chopped walnuts and the milk. Mix together.

• Pour mixture into cake tin and bake for 1 hour (or until skewer comes out clean).

• Allow to cool before removing bread from tin.

What I’ve been up to

Well, apart from passing my last-ever university exam (yay!), there’s the small matter of completing my thesis. Regarding sewing, I finally found the time to alter some clothing. Just a few alterations – mending holes, taking in at the sides, shortening the strap length on one of my favourite tunics etc.

I am also working on finishing my next project for the pattern challenge. As soon as I resolve the last issues I have with the garment, I will present it to you! Let’s just say I’m not yet completely happy with it…

Additionally, I submitted my Cabo Halter top to the Spring Top Week that’s taking place over at Made by Rae.

Check out the flickr pool of all the entries!

Wishing you all a very happy Easter weekend =)
