This is my absolute favourite recipe for making banana bread, the addition of yoghurt makes it so much softer and more moist.


100g unsalted butter

1/2 cup firmly packed (100g) brown sugar

1 egg

4-5 bananas (450g total), mashed

3 tablespoons (1/4 cup) natural yoghurt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 2/3 cups (250g) plain flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon Masterfoods Ground Cinnamon

1/2 cup walnuts, toasted (optional)

Step 1

Preheat oven to 170°C (not fan-forced) and grease a 900ml loaf pan.

Step 2

Beat butter and sugar in a bowl using electric beaters until thick and fluffy.

Step 3

Add egg and beat until well combined.

Step 4

Add banana, yoghurt and vanilla extract and stir. Sift together flour, baking powder and cinnamon and fold through batter. Stir in walnuts if using. Pour into pan and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn onto a rack to cool completely


I hope you enjoy!!
