Some of our favourite banana recipes.
We know that not every food that we love is necessarily good for us. But bananas are something we can eat at any time, guilt-free.
They can also be a delicious way to add more fruit – and therefore more goodness to the meals we eat or make for our families, especially when baking.
They can be used for savoury dishes too – I like to add sliced bananas to a spicy curry at the last minute, just cooking them for a minute or so until they are warmed through.
They are also delicious in savoury salads, especially when they are firm.
Bananas make an any time snack that comes along in its own sealed packaging and I like to add a handful of slices to breakfast oatmeal or other cereal too. Oh and a banana smoothie is a wonderful start to the day.

Banana fritters recipe from 1975 I admit that I’m fascinated by older recipes. 1975 doesn’t seem terribly long ago (to me anyway) but this recipe for banana fritters surprised me. This is mainly because, when I think about this dish, I imagine bananas dipped in batter and deep fried. These are different. Although the original author doesn’t specify, I like to serve these garnished with more sliced banana and chopped… READ MORE
Lady Baltimore Cake Recipe. A white cake with whip cream topping and fruit on top and the middle. Traditional Lord and Lady Baltimore cakes were white cakes with a boiled frosting. Topped and filled with raisins, dates, figs and topped with some nuts. They marinated the fruit in sherry wine. I worked for a bakery in the 70s and the recipe my boss made used coconut, cherries, peaches and bananas. I have gone to bakeries that have had… READ MORE
