We have a real treat for you today, our talented pastry and dessert chef Darko has shared his gorgeous banana bread recipe. We know that lots and lots of people have already jumped on the banana bread wagon so you might think your recipe is perfect, but we have to say Darko’s really is the best. We acknowledge that we might be a tiny bit biased but we challenge you to try it and let us know if we’re wrong.

Take your time with this, it’s important that you get a light colour in this step.

Add the eggs, flour, honey, banana, baking powder and cinnamon and mix until combined.

Fold in the chocolate and chopped nuts. We used walnuts for this one but pecans would work really nicely too.

Transfer the mix to your pre-prepared tin and bake for 30 mins at 160c.

Keep an eye on your oven as you bake, when we tried this at home we needed to bake our banana bread a little longer than 30 mins. Use a skewer to check if the bread is baked through and if it isn’t check it again in 5-minute intervals until your skewer comes out clean.

Once your banana bread is baked through, set it on a wire tray to cool for five minutes. After five minutes remove from the tin and leave to cool completely on the wire tray.

When your banana bread has cooled we recommend having a slice with your favourite cup of tea or coffee while you enjoy a little taste of Suesey Street at home.

We're Back!

Suesey Street Reopens On July 1st

And we couldn’t be happier. First of all, thank you for your patience. It has been a challenging few months but we are delighted to say that we'll be opening our doors to guests from July 1st, and we can’t wait to see you. We do hope you got to sample our ‘Stay at Home Supper Club’ throughout the lockdown and you will still be able to order some of our house favourites direct to your door over the next couple of months but if you’re feeling like getting out of the house for a fine dining lunch or dinner then book online or give us a call.

Our GM, John Healy, Chefs, Sommelier, Wait Staff and Office Team have been working hard over the past 3 months to make sure that the Suesey Street you come back to is as good as, if not better than, the Suesey Street you know and love. We will have some amazing new dishes for you to try and some of our classics that you can’t live without.

Your safety and the safety of our staff is paramount so we will be following all HSE and recommended Health & Safety Guidelines in order to keep you all safe and comfortable. Be sure to keep an eye on any and all safety signage throughout the restaurant and have respect for all of the other diners that will be joining you as we reopen. As always, you can expect a very warm welcome from all of the Suesey Street Team.  We're looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces and some new ones too. 

Make your first post-lockdown dining experience one to remember and BOOK NOW!
