My mum's banana bread  
225g self-raising flour
1/2 tsp ground mixed spice
100g marg
100g light soft brown sugar
2 eggs
500g bananas mashed (we think that is with their skins that you weigh them, depends how mushy you want it to be)
1 tbsp demerera sugar

Preheat oven to 180C (Gas4), grease a 1kg loaf tin and line the base.
Sift flour and spice into a bowl
Beat the marg and sugar until pale and fluffy
Beat in 1 egg
Add remaining egg and 1 tbsp of the flour mix
Beat vigorously until evenly blended
Beat in the bananas
Using a large metal spoon fold in the flour
Spoon into the tin and level the top
Sprinkle the demerera sugar over the top
Bake for 1 to 1.25 hours, or until firm to touch
Leave to cool for one minute before turning out onto a wire rack

This is OK to be frozen too :)

i would add in some roasted walnuts to give it some crunch - i always put in some to my banana bread...
