Banana bread recipe

For the our Big Breakfast, Michelin-starred chef and Gordon Ramsay's protégée Angela Hartnett has shared with us her favourite banana bread recipe.

This is the banana bread I make at home, it’s delicious, healthy and easy to make.

Just make sure you keep a few bananas on the side to ripen a few days beforehand and you’ll have the perfect home-made banana bread to share for your Big Breakfast.

Happy baking and have fun whilst raising funds for the British Lung Foundation.
