Thursday baking - Nigella's banana bread

I've been a bit remiss with my blogging of late, but now I'm back, with two posts in a week!

This banana bread recipe comes from Nigella Lawson's How to be a Domestic Goddess. You can find a copy of the recipe here. My go-to banana loaf recipe is this Banana chocolate chip loaf. However this Nigella recipe has become a welcome addition to my selection of recipes for using up those overripe bananas that seem to pile up in my house. The walnuts and whisky soaked raisins are a nice addition and put this a cut above standard banana cakes/loafs/bread (apart from the tin, I'm not sure what the differences is in recipes for banana cake/loaf or bread?).

The first time I made this recipe, I added the specified 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and then discovered I didn't have any unsalted butter, so just used salted butter. Although it was still delicious, I felt like it was just a bit too salty (no one else seemed to notice though). The next time I made it I left out the salt altogether and just used salted butter. It turned out perfect. It keeps well for several days.


  1. well my verdict is this is v nice with the raisins and walnuts, but as a coconut appreciator I will remain loyal to my favourite banana coconut bread and still say that is the best!! Becs

  2. I need to brown up some bananas to try this!
