Banana Bread

Banana Bread

1 1/2 cups (about 3) mashed ripe bananas
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light olive oil or vegetable or canola oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
pinch salt
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans or dark chocolate, optional
100g butter, softened
1 tablespoon honey, extra

# Preheat oven to moderate (180°C or 160°C fan-forced). Grease and line 14cm x 20 cm loaf tin.
# Combine banana, sugar, oil, eggs, honey, sour cream and vanilla, if using, in a large bowl; whisk well.
# Add sifted flour and salt (and nuts or chocolate, if using); fold in with large spoon.
# Pour into a prepared loaf tin and bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean. Stand 5 minutes in tin, before turning onto wire rack to cool completely.
# Eat while warm, or slice cold bread thickly. Toast under a grill on both sides or until browned. Spread with honey butter.

Honey butter:
Beat softened butter in small bowl with electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add honey and beat until combined. Chill until required.
