Banana Bread (V)

Here is a sweet one for you to sink your teeth into. Not much of a bread and more of a cake but all the same tastes delicious.

Makes 1 Loaf

140g butter , softened, plus extra for the tin
3 tbsp Golden Syrup
75g Macadamia Nuts
75g Caster sugar
2 large eggs , beaten
150g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 very ripe bananas, 2 mashed and 1 sliced

1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan. Butter a 2lb loaf tin and line the base and sides with baking paper

2. Cream the butter, sugar and golden syrup until light and fluffy. Add eggs with a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour, baking powder, bananas and nuts.

3. Pour into the tin and add sliced bananas on top of the mixture. 

4. Bake for about 30 mins until a skewer can come out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove to a wire rack. Then leave to cool for a further half an hour.
