Perfectly light, fluffy and delicious banana bread, made perfectly in the thermomix every time.
  • 3 bananas (frozen if possible)
  • 125g butter
  • 120g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 80g maple syrup
  • 255g all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees celsius
  2. Break the frozen bananas into small pieces and put them in the thermomix. Blitz them on speed 8/9 for 1.5-2 minutes until they form a thick and creamy consistency a bit like ice-cream.
  3. Set them aside in a separate bowl.
  4. Add the butter, sugar and vanilla to the thermomix bowl and mix on speed 5 for 3 minutes. If the mixture sticks to the sides, then just scraping it back to the middle and continue beating until it is light and creamy.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time and beat them on speed 5 for 10 seconds (each).
  6. Add the banana mix with the maple syrup and combine everything on peed 5 for 45 seconds to a minute.
  7. Add all the dry ingredients and fold together with a (non metal) spatular. You will have to do this by hand.
  8. Once all the ingredients are combined, scoop the mixture into a lined baking tin and bake for 1 hour, or until a skewer/knife is placed in the middle and pulled out clean.
  9. Serve with butter and enjoy.
If you don't have frozen bananas, then over ripe bananas will work too, but you will only need to beat them on speed 5 for 20-30 seconds.

It is very important to fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, as it keeps the air in, and will ensure the banana bread is light and fluffy and rises well. Don't worry too much if the mixture looks a bit lumpy is still bakes perfectly.
