Banana Soda Farls

Fancy something that isn't quiiite cake but that isn't quite the plain ol' piece of toast either? Well, here is a little banana bread & soda farl hybrid! Enjoy with jam, peanut butter and sliced banana, or whatever you might be in the mood for!

I was really happen when I peeked into the oven 20 minutes after I put them in to find these delicious little things, I will most certainly make them again, that's for sure *smiles*

Banana Soda Farls
(Makes 4, about 250 calories each)

100g wholemeal flour, plus extra for dusting
100g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp light muscavado sugar
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 medium ripe banana
125 ml low fat yogurt, fromage frais or buttermilk
50 ml skimmed milk

- Pre-heat the oven to 220ºC.

- In a small baking bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Mix well to combine, before making a well in the middle.

- Mash the banana (I use a mug and fork) and tip into the well along with the yogurt/fromage frais/buttermilk and skimmed milk. Combine until you have a dough, it will be slightly sticky. Dust the worktop with a little flour and tip the dough onto it.

- Knead the dough lightly and add a little more flour if necessary, then shape the dough into a sausage and cut it into four equally sized squares. Place on a baking paper-clad tray and place in the oven. Bake for about 20 minutes until lovely and golden.

- Leave to cool on a wire rack, or enjoy them aaaalmost straight from the oven! I decided to top mine with some philadelphia and a chopped plum. The next one I have, I'll probably have with either jam, or peanut butter and chopped banana - can't wait!

  1. Det høres ut som noe jeg kan like! Litt som tykke heimkunnskapsscones med banan :) Namnamnam!

    1. Ja, disse var nydelige! Er selvsagt best nystekt rett fra ovnen, men er jo bare og putte de i brødristeren senere :) Best med oppskåret banan! Og kanskje litt nutella og? Hadde nok vært snadder ^ ^
