Banana Loaf


Not only do we love cooking all things Lao and enjoy sharing the flavours of our heritage with our friends and family, but we also love baking!

So we thought we’d share with you a very easy and delicious banana loaf recipe. It’s quick and easy to make, it’s moist but not in a birthday cake kind of way and it’s the perfect companion with a nice cup of tea.


1 1/4 Cup self-raising flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

20g butter

1/2 Cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/4 Cup milk

2 Bananas mashed


1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees fan forced (if you don’t have a fan forced oven then 180 degrees). Grease a loaf tin approx 14cm x 21cm and line the bottom with baking paper.

2. Sift flour and cinnamon into a mixing bowl; rub in the butter.

3. Add sugar, egg, milk and banana. Do not over mix; the batter should be a bit lumpy. Spoon mixture into the loaf tin and bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the loaf. Cool the loaf onto a cooling rake for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Can be toasted and stores well in the freezer. Enjoy!

Happy cooking, happy eating
