Mix 2c plain flour (sift if you want), 1c sugar, 1T baking powder and 1/2t salt in one big bowl.

Then add 1c mashed ripe banana (about 3 medium ones), 1/3c milk (full or skimmed), 1/4c corn oil, 1 egg and 1t vanilla paste to the mixture. You can also add optional ingredients such as chocolate chips or nuts here.

Still together till just-mixed but do not over-mix.

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for about 1 hour at 175c (pre-heat the oven first) or until skewer comes out clean when tested. Cool for 5-10 mins in tin then turn cake onto rack to cool completely.

I tried Yam bread before in Melbourne. It's so fluffy and soft, wonder if you have the recipe.

Yam bread? Do you mean buns stuffed with yam fillings? Otherwise, I have not seen any other kind of Yam bread before but it sure does sound interesting.

Is that sliced banana on top of the bread?
It looks really good. How did you do it?
Did you just put it on top of the batter before placing in the oven or...?
