Weber  Baker  Brothers 4931 346X318
  • 50g sultanas
  • 25ml dark rum
  • 85g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • 65g unsalted butter
  • 85g light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 very ripe bananas - 200g without skin
  • 35g walnuts
  • 1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g butter for the griddle
  • 50g caster sugar


    In the Kitchen:

  • Let the sultanas soak in the rum for at least 30 minutes.
  • Sieve the flour into a bowl with the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  • Melt the unsalted butter and in another bowl beat this and the brown sugar until combined well, and mix in the egg. Mash the bananas and add.
  • Chop the walnuts coarsely. Stir in the walnuts, rum soaked sultanas and vanilla extract using a wooden spoon.
  • Add the flour mixture, a third at a time, whisking constantly.
  • Scrape into a loaf tin lined with greaseproof paper.
  • At the Barbecue:

  • Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat – approx. 180°C
  • Place the pizza stone on the grate and let it preheat. Put the tin on it and bake the banana bread for 25-30 minutes or until firm on top.
  • When a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean - it’s done. Leave in the tin on a rack to cool.
  • Remove from the tin and cut it into six slices.
  • Preheat the griddle for 10 minutes. Add a knob of butter to melt. Grill the banana bread slices for 2 minutes on each side.
  • Serving Suggestion

  • Sprinkle with caster sugar and serve with ice cream.
