Let them eat cake (well it was bread actually)

With banana's so expensive at the moment, you don't want any to go to waste.  Here is what I love to do with banana's.
My favourite banana bread recipe
90g unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed (over-ripe) banana (about 2 large banana's)
1 cup plain flour
1 cup self-raising flour

1. Preheat oven to 160 degress (fan forced).  Grease and line loaf pan.
2. Beat butter, vanilla and sugar in a bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs one at a time.  Stir in banana then sifted flours, in two batches.  Spread mixture into a pan; cover with a strip of pleated foil.
3. Bake bread 40 min; uncover, bake about 30 min.

(I love to add about a teaspoon or 2 of cinnamon in the mix, and I also sprinkle extra cinnamon on top before baking)
