Superbee Honey banana bread

Use top drawer Australian Iron Bark honey in this recipe – it’s beautifully mellow and is a favourite flavour booster in baking.

  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup (110g) brown sugar

  2. Add the eggs slowly and beat well to combine then add the banana, flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and honey and stir to combine.
  3. Spoon the mixture into a 26cm x 11cm lightly greased tin, lined with baking paper.
