For Banana Bread

  • 3 nos ripe bananas
  • 150 gms butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • 2 nos eggs at room temperature
  • 1 & 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

For Maple butter cream

  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 - 2 tbsp Maple syrup


Baking Banana Bread

  • Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs one by one and incorporate them completely.
  • Mash the bananas completely and add to the eggs. Whisk it properly. Add the vanilla too.
  • Now take a sieve and sift in the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Fold the flour gently till you have a nice and smooth batter.
  • Pour the batter into a loaf tin or a 9 by 9 inch cake tin. Don't forget to grease the tin and then dust with flour or use parchment paper at the bottom and the sides.
  • Transfer to a pre heated oven at 180 degree C for 55 minutes or until a skewer pricked in the centre comes out clean.
  • It is best to put parchment paper since the baking time is long and the bottom and sides tend to burn because of bananas.
  • Once it is done, take the banana bread out of the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool down.

Making Maple butter cream

  • Whisk the butter and then sieve in the icing sugar. Whisk and add maple syrup and continue whisking till it is smooth and firm.

Serving Banana Bread

  • Cut slices of the banana bread when cooled down and spread a little maple butter cream and serve. You can serve it chilled as well.


The idea for maple butter cream came from one of the episodes of Masterchef Australia, probably the one which was aired in 2014.
