Quick recipe for using up ripe bananas.

Heat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius/moderate.

Cream 60g butter and beat in 1/2 cup caster sugar gradually. In a bowl, mash up 2 bananas and stir in one egg. Slowly add this to the butter mix.

Sift 2 cups of self raising flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and slowly add this to the butter/banana mix and continue to beat it in.

The batter will be quite dry, so add 3 tablespoons of yoghurt. This mix gets poured into a greased loaf pan. You can sprinkle chopped walnuts on top (any kind of nut would work, I suppose).

Bake for 50 mins, or until a skewer comes out clean. Enjoy.

* I had 4 bananas to use so I baked a double batch to get a mother loaf and 6 babies.
