Let's get into the making of this Biscoff Banana Bread
Ripe Bananas- You will need 3 medium bananas. With the skin removed, they weighed between 300-310 grams. Over ripe bananas produce a sweet moist loaf.
Light or Dark Brown Sugar- The molasses in the sugar add flavour, makes the bread soft and moist.
Eggs- Creates structure and stability in the batter as well as adds moisture to the bread.
Vanilla Extract- Adds flavour.
Buttermilk- Adds moisture to this banana bread. When used together baking soda it produces carbon dioxide, allowing the bread to rise.
Flour -Plain or self raising flour can be used. If using self-raising flour, omit baking powder and baking soda.
Baking soda- allows the bread to rise.
Baking powder- lightens the texture of the bread by enlarging air bubbles within the batter.
Biscoff Spread– the sweet caramel flavour of this spread adds so much flavour to the bread and keeps the bread extra moist.
Biscoff Biscuits- adds a lovely crunch as well as flavour to the bread.

Tips for making the banana bread
Use overripe bananas because they are sweet and have a strong banana flavour. If your bananas aren’t ripe enough, slow bake them at 150 c (300 f )in the oven for 30 minutes. Leave them to cool before using.
Warm the biscoff spread in the microwave for 15-20 seconds so it mixes into the batter easier.
Use all brown sugar in this recipe as it yields a soft moist bread as well as adds wonderful flavour.
If you haven’t got any buttermilk at hand, make some by mixing in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar with 250 ml (1 cup) milk and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
How should it be stored?
This bread can be stored in three ways. Let the bread cool completely before storing.
In an airtight container at room temperature– The bread will stay moist at room temperature for up to 5 days. Wrap it in cling film or plastic wrap and place in a plastic container with a lid.
In the fridge if you live in a warm climate– Wrap the bread in cling film or plastic wrap and place in a zip-lock bag before placing in the fridge. When you take the bread out of the fridge to eat, it can be warmed in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
In the freezer- Banana bread can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Wrap the cooled bread in cling film or plastic wrap and place in zip-lock bag before putting it in the freezer.
