banana bread - my first attempt

(photo from rebeccagoings)

Hi guys!

I've been planning to try out some baking recipes for beginners because I'd love to be able to create yummy cakes and cookies and other treats for parties. We're invited to a New Year's Eve party and I'd like to bring something delicious, so I clicked through lots and lots of online recipe collections and picked out some easy stuff to practice (this is the very first time I baked without a cake mix, how embarassing ^^).
I found the recipe here (in German), but I thought it would be nice to translate it for my international readers ;)

banana bread (southafrican version)

275 grams flour
10 mls baking powder
1 mls baking soda
1 mls salt
175 grams butter
200 grams sugar
2 eggs
125 mls milk
2 mls vanilla sugar
3-4 bananas (approx. 250 mls)

Here we go

1. Mix the butter and sugar and beat until it's creamy.

2. Mix in vanilla sugar and the eggs.

3. Mix in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, flour and the milk.

4. Crush the bananas with a fork and mix them in.

5. When the dough is creamy put it into a greased cake pan (or leave out the grease and use baking paper instead).

6. Put it into the oven at 180 degrees for about 60 minutes.

Et voilà...

...the banana bread!
Okay I admit it's a bit dark on the upper side, but I told you I'm a noob to baking ;)
It may not look nice but it is so yummyyyyy! And it was really easy too.

Have a great day!
