DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter gently. Do not have the melted butter too hot as it will cook the eggs when added to them.
  • Add to sugar and eggs and beat well until thick and fluffy.
  • Add banana and grated rind of the lemon and beat thoroughly.
  • Sift flours, salt and bicarbonate soda together.
  • Add to creamed mixture.
  • Spread evenly in greased and floured loaf tin.
  • Bake in a moderately slow oven at 150 degrees centigrade for 50 - 60 minutes
  • When loaf is ready, take out of oven and leave in the tin.
  • Stir 1/4 cup sugar extra together with juice of the lemon and extra rind if desired in a small saucepan until sugar is melted. This step can be done in a microwave.
  • Pour syrup over warm loaf in its tin when just out of the oven. Make sure syrup glazes top surface and drizzles down the sides.
  • Leave to cool and for the syrup to be absorbed.
