cricket powder banana bread

recipe information

Cooking time: 1 hour


  • 30g cricket powder
  • 100g butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 bananas
  • 195g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp milk


Sometimes, you deserve a little treat and our extra special banana bread is just the thing! In our recipe, the cricket powder (also known as cricket flour) adds a delicious nutty flavour which complements the sweet flavour of the banana.

01 – Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Grease your loaf tin and line with non-stick baking parchment.

02 – Measure all the ingredients into a bowl and beat until the mixture is smooth. Ideally, use an electric whisk to avoid any lumps, but this is not essential.

03 – Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin evenly and put on the middle shelf of the oven.

Bake for approximately one hour. To check the cake is done, insert a skewer into the top of the cake which should come out clean.
