Visit my website @ http://shirleylye12.wix.com/princessmic

this is a recipe from allrecipes.co.uk. but i added some flaxseed and it taste even better! Flaxseed has good source of omega and is very good for health! the recipe is pretty easy too!

125g butter ( i use salted butter)
150g caster sugar ( you can reduce the amount of sugar accordingly)
1 tsp vanilla extract ( i added 2 instead cos i love the vanilla flavour)
1 egg beaten
2 very ripe banana, mashed
190g self raising flour
60ml milk


  1. Grease and line a alb loaf tin. melt butter, sugar and vanilla in a saucepan over a medium heat ( i put in the butter first and wait until the butter is almost melted before added in the sugar as i do not want the sugar to get burnt.)
  2. remove from heat and add the mashed banana, mix well
  3. Add the egg, mix well
  4. Fold in the flour and flaxseed. then the milk
  5. Pour into the prepared tin, sprinkle with a tablespoon of demerara sugar to give a crunch topping if like ( i skip this as i do not want it to be too sweet)
  6. Bake at 150 C fan oven ( or 170C regular) for 1 hr ( i tried their original 35 mins but is not fully cooked so i increase to 1 hr) or until skewer comes out clean
