Mini banana loaves

baking, cakes

Mini sizes so often ring the changes for old recipes and turning a standard banana loaf into 8 minis is no exception.

This is a Thermomix recipe- of course it is- I am back in guernsey for a few months! I prefer pecans to walnut so I have subsituted them in this recipe. Simplicity is standard for Thermomix, so put 250g plain flour and 3 tsp of baking powder, 1/2tsp of salt, pinch nutmeg, 150g soft brown sugar, 100g soft butter, 2 large eggs, about 300g ripe bananas,into TM bowl Nd mix for 30 seconds speed 5. Add 60g pecans and mix 1 minute on reverse blade, speed 2.

Pour into the prepared mini tins and bake at 180°C checking after 30 minutes. Of course I have two best friends in my guernsey kitchen, one is my Thermomix the other is my aga. Aga time in baking oven is around 30 minutes.

This is a really light tea time treat. It may be May but summer temperatures are still to arrive in guernsey – tea time loaves and earl grey tea the order of the day.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
