Cooking with Mrs Smith

Today the children made spicy Tanzanian banana muffins with Mrs Smith as class AS got a headstart on health week over the rest of the school. The photos show that the children really enjoyed their work. The recipe is also below for those of you who fancy making it at home.


2 Bananas large (approx)
2 Eggs large
110g flour
200g sugar
60g whole wheat flour
225g butter or margarine
125ml skim (or low fat) milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

To Make the Banana Bread

Preheat oven to 350F (180C)

Peel and mash the bananas, you need to end up with a cupful.
Break the eggs and beat well
Soften the butter or margarine.
Cream the butter/margarine and sugar together until light then add the eggs beating until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Stir in the mashed banana
Sift the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon) together, and then stir in the whole wheat flour.
Fold the dry ingredients into the banana mixture & then mix well.
Mix in the milk and vanilla.

Pour the mixture into a greased 9X5X3 loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes. When the spiced banana bread is done it will bounce back when pressed.

    We tried the banana loaf recipe at home; It was DELIICIOUS! In fact we actually had enough left to make muffins! Unfortunately though our little sister couldn’t try as she is allergic to egg.
