The most failsafe and reliable banana bread to have existed

 It's a hug; a cozy and warm blanket of sweetness and comfort. Soft, effortly luxurious with a fluffy yet snug texture. With hidden stitching and and long thick strands, of course I'm describing the "Everlasting Comfort Luxury Faux Fur Throw Blanket - Soft, Fluffy Blankets - Throw Blankets for Couch and Bed - 127x165 - Gray" (but boycott Bezos). 

Anywho, this is an easy and failsafe banana bread, guaranteed not to make you cry or become incredibly frustrated when all of those other recipes come out as a claggy mess of damp sand and tangy tears. Dress it up or keep it simple (stupid); feeling wild? I suggest some pecans (or walnuts if skint but wants nut), dark chocolate and a sprinkle of coconut satisfy any craving or desire.

If you can spare another banana, top the unbaked batter with 1/2 a sliced one; this sorcery keeps the banana bread even more moist so it can last a few days longer. But let's be real, it'll be gone in a day

Banana Bread

75ml neutral oil 

100g soft brown sugar

30g fine caster sugar 

20g golden syrup 

1 egg, room temperature

2 well ripened medium bananas

150g self raising flour 

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Preheat the oven to 170c and grease and line a 900g loaf tin. Whip toegther the oil, sugar and egg until well combined, about 3-5 minutes depending on elbow grease. Mash your bananas roughly with a fork and whip into the mixture, beat for another 2-3 minutes until unanimous and uniform. Sieve in the remaining ingredients and fold in using a spatula until *just* combined. Dollop into the prepared tin and bake for a good 45-55 minutes (check after 45) until risen, deeply golden and smelling heavenly. Cool in the tin for 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Devour warm. Or even better, in a few days time when the ingredients have mingled together.
