Simply Tasty: Imbiber’s banana loaf

You will need an assistant to cook this recipe, to finish the bottle of beer. You could do it yourself, but we all know the perils of operating a hot oven while drunk. Yes, this banana bread has beer in it; it’s the beer that gives the loaf so much flavour. So with that in mind, either find a friend to keep you company, or bake with caution. This bread is best served with cream cheese, but you can also try it with butter or peanut butter.


½ cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs, beaten

3 ripe bananas

¼ tsp. salt

2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

3 tbsp. beer

Prehead the oven to 350°F, and grease a medium-sized loaf pan.

Melt the butter in the microwave (15 to 30 seconds on high).

In a large bowl, combine the butter and sugar and mix until they are a creamy consistency.

In a separate bowl, place the peeled bananas and mash them with a fork until they are pulpy.

Add the eggs, bananas, and beer to the butter and sugar and mix well.

Add the salt, flour, and baking powder. Mix by folding the banana mixture over the powdered ingredients.

Pour the mixture into the pan, and cook for about an hour, or until the top of the loaf is golden brown.
