Vegan Banana Bread

Servings 8 people


  • 3 large black bananas
  • 75 ml vegetable oil or sunflower oil, plus extra for the tin
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 225 g plain flour (or use self-raising flour and reduce the baking powder to 2 heaped tsb)
  • 3 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice
  • 50 g mixed nuts


  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mash 3 large black peeled bananas with a fork, then mix well with 75g vegetable or sunflower oil and 100g brown sugar.
  • Add 225g plain flour, 3 heaped tsp baking powder and 3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice, and combine well. Add 50g dried fruit or nuts, if using.
  • Bake in an oiled, lined 2lb loaf tin for 20 minutes. Check and cover with foil if the cake is browning.
  • Bake for another 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool a little before slicing. It's delicious freshly baked, but develops a lovely gooey quality the day after.
