hey try this banana bread!!


* 1 1/2 cups Plain flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda. (Carb-soda)
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 125 grams Unsalted butter, softened
* 1 cup Caster sugar

Preheat oven to 170C, 325 F or Gas 3. Grease a 23cmx12 cm loaf tin and line the base with baking paper.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, carb soda and salt.
In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar for 3-4 minutes, until fluffy. Gradually add the beaten eggs, mixing well after each addition.
Mash the bananas with a fork and add to the butter mixture. Stir well. Add the dry ingredients mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until the top of the bread is firm and is a deep brown colour.
Test with skewer or piece of straw. Cool for 10 minutes and then turn out onto wire rack.
Serve dusted with icing sugar. The flavour
improves with keeping.

I eat a vegan diet. Is there a way to eliminate the eggs in this recipe and still have it turn out?

I'd love to try these two recipes, but please a cup of sugar?? As I'm in the UK we usually mention amounts in grammes or spoon sizes. Does this cup really mean a whole cup? surely not?
