  • Two bowls
  • Measuring spoons and cups
  • Spatulas
  • Food scale - optional
  • Baking tin - 9 x 5 or 8 x 8


  • 2 cups Flour 250 grams weighed
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar granulated
  • 4 medium bananas, mashed very ripe, the riper, the better
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or mixed essence
  • 2/3 cup oil canola or neutral tasting oil
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and line a 9 x 5 baking tin with parchment paper with some overhang to allow for easy removal from tin.
  • Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in a large bowl.
  • Mix the eggs, sugar, bananas, vanilla extract and oil together in separate bowl. This is what mine looked like after thoroughly mixing.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, taking care not to over mix.
  • Transfer to greased and lined tin and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool in tin for about ten minutes and then move to cooling rack to cool completely.
