Banana, Ginger and Golden Syrup Loaf

It was Daddy’s birthday at the weekend, so I was on the hunt for something tasty that he could have with a cuppa to celebrate. I knew I couldn’t go down the normal chocolaty, sugary, creamy route because he’s not into that sort of thing, so instead I looked for inspiration using fruits and spices.

I adapted a recipe from Rachel Allen’s lasted book ‘All Things Sweet’; the Banana, Ginger and Golden Syrup loaf looked perfect. This is how I made the loaf…

mix

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a 2lb loaf tin. In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar until soft and add in the golden syrup and ginger syrup. Beat the eggs in, one at a time- the mixture will look “sloppy” as Rachel mentions. Sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture and fold in.

Finally chop the ginger and mash the bananas and add into the mixture. Pop the loaf into the oven for about 45 minutes until golden brown.
