  • oven
  • Baking Tin
  • Mixing Bowl


  • 4 medium ripe bananas You can also sub one banana with pear or apple or other soft fruit.
  • 60 ml vegetable oil I use sunflower usually
  • 60 ml plant milk you could also use vegan yoghurt or just water
  • 100 g light brown sugar I use dark brown sugar or coconut sugar usually
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 240 g flour You can use any kind of flour. If using self raising, omit the baking powder.
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

Optional Extras

  • nuts to top
  • 50 g choc chips or chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 175C/ Gas Mark 5.
  • Line a loaf tin with baking paper or parchment. Leave some over the edges, you will use this to pull the cake out of the tin later.
  • Roughly mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl
  • Add the sugar, oil, vanilla, and plant milk, and give it a good stir. You want the sugar to start to dissolve.
  • Sift in the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, and mix.
  • Transfer the banana cake mix to the lined tin.
  • Add the nuts or any extra bits of sliced banana on top & pop in the oven.
  • Bake for about 35 mins. Then test the cake with a skewer. If it comes out clean, then the cake is done. If not, put it back in your oven for another 5-10 mins.
  • Let the cake cool & use the paper you cleverly left hanging over the edges to remove it from the tin.
  • This banana bread will keep for around a week in an airtight container. It also freezes well!
