Thermomix Banana Bread

Thermomix Banana Bread

Bananas are one of those items that we ALWAYS seem to have more of than we actually need.  In fact I can safely say there is always at least two or three of them sitting in our fruit bowl.  While most of the time they are eaten before they start to turn brown and go soft, I do get a little excited when I see a few brown bananas in the fruit bowl as it means I can do some baking!

Thermomix Banana Bread

This recipe is adapted for the Thermomix from Donna Hay’s Simple Banana Bread recipe in her book ‘No Time to Cook’.  It’s been our go to banana bread recipe for the past few years as it really is easy to make and works every time, so it only made sense to convert it to a Thermomix Banana Bread recipe!!

This banana bread can be enjoyed warm or lightly toasted with butter and cream cheese or it also tastes great when eaten at room temperature.  You can also freeze any leftovers (that is if you can resist eating it all!) for up to one month.

Because it’s freezer friendly I like to have  a few pieces cut and stored in the freezer for those times when I’m craving something sweet and have no energy to make anything.  It also makes a great treat for the kids and would be great in their lunchbox as an occasional treat.

Do you always have bananas in your fruit bowl too?

    1. Hi Danielle, banana bread is meant to be quite dense so you probably didnt do anything wrong at all!! We do have a couple of other banana bread recipes on the website that you might like to try and see if they’re more to your liking – but they will still be dense 🙂 xx

      1. Hi all,
        been making a variation of this with perfect results. I do not use all that sugar and cut it down to just 50grams total sugar. I also add 40 grams of Canadian maple syrup.
        Give that a try…. yum

          yes, 185g total sugar is ridiculous. Most thermomix recipes in general are way over generous with the sugar. I cut all mine down and it doesn’t alter the result.

  1. Absolutely best banana bread! I love how dense this was, beautiful texture but will cut back the sugar next time. Thankyou!

  2. Please could you clarify temperature for a fan oven (I’m in the UK). Generally recipes have conventional, gas and fan oven temperatures. My Banana bread was like uncooked dough through the middle and at the bottom,although I checked it with a skewer. I will try again…..

      Hi Sarah,
      We’re sorry to hear your banana bread didn’t work out. It’s 160 degrees celsius in a fan forced oven (which is what I have). I hope that helps xx

  3. Just wondering why you use plain in stead of self raising flour? That would surely make it rise less and be much more dense? Thanks. 😊

  4. Love this !! Left about 50 game of sugar out and perfect. I am gluten intolerant and used Coles gluten free flour
    And no issues there . As good as it can be fo gluten free cakes 🙂
