Banana Bread With Maple Syrup Butter

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Banana Bread with Maple Syrup Butter. I have never tried making Banana Bread before, but when I tried this recipe, it baked really well. The Maple Syrup Butter is really simple to make, and makes the bread taste even better than it already does! 

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Butter
2. Sugar
3. Eggs
4. Bananas
5. Vanilla Flavourings
6. Self-Raising Flour
7. Ground Cinnamon
8. Salt
9. Maple Syrup

Bismillah, let's start! 

First, preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4.

This recipe makes 2 loaves of Banana Bread, so you can adjust the recipe to suit you. 
Grease and line 2 loaf tins so they are ready for you later.

Into the bowl of a standing mixer, place 4 ounces butter.

Add 8 ounces sugar.

Using the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together.

Add 2 eggs.

Beat in the eggs until well combined.

Next, take 3 ripe bananas.

Peel the bananas, and roughly mash them in a bowl.

Add the mashed bananas to the batter.

Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavouring.

Mix to combine.

Add 12 ounces self-raising flour.

Add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1 teaspoon salt.

Mix until just combined.

Divide the mixture equally between the two loaf tins. Bake in the preheated oven at Gas Mark 4 for 1 hour.

Bake until golden brown and firm in the middle. Insert a toothpick in the middle, and if it comes out clean with no wet batter on it, the loaves are done!

Remove the loaves from the tins, and place on to a wire rack to cool.

To make the Maple Syrup Butter, place 3 ounces softened butter into a bowl.

Soften the butter with the back of a spoon.

Next, one of my favourite ingredients, maple syrup!

Add 2 tablespoons maple syrup to the butter.

Stir well to combine.

And, it's ready to serve!

Cut a slice of Banana Bread, and top with the Maple Syrup Butter.

Serve for breakfast, as a snack or with tea!
