Miss Dahl

We are currently obsessed with Miss Dahl's banana bread -  straight from the oven, lather with butter (NOT margarine) this is divine - and great for the kids lunchboxes.

This cookbook is a delight - the pics are beautiful  -the recipes divine.
Available at
Ms Dahl's Banana Bread

        75g butter - make sure it is soft
        1 egg, beaten
        170g (1 1/2 cups) flour (I use spelt -best not to use a SR flour)
        4 ripe banana's mashed up
        200g soft brown sugar (I like the dark brown sugar)
        1 tablespoon vanilla extract
        1 teaspoon bicarb soda/ baking soda
        pinch salt (pink salt flakes are best)

Preheat oven to 180oC.  Grease a 30cm x 23cm loaf tin.
Pour mashed bananas into mixing bowl.  Mix in butter, sugar, egg  & vanilla extract.  Add bicarb/baking soda, salt and flour and mix.  Pour into prepared tin  - bake for 1 hour.  After one hour take out the bestest, moistest banana bread - eat and enjoy.  (I use a loaf tin as the next day I will toast the bread for breezy)

And the kitchen in which Ms Dahl creates her delights..... well it is not actually her home - but a home that is rented for various productions - but who cares it is beautiful, ahh the the white floors...
