Line a loaf pan with baking paper, this recipe is for a 9 x 3 inch loaf pan. Check the notes for multipliers on bigger loaf pans.
Evenly spread the cake batter in the loaf pan and place in the middle rack of the oven. Baking time depends on your oven. I use a convection oven and it takes around 30-35 minutes to bake this banana bread. Make sure you use a wooden skew after 30 minutes, poke the banana bread in the centre of the pan. If the skew comes out dry, the banana bread is done.
Set on a cooling rack to cool for 10-15 minutes.
