I had some bananas left over and while wondering what to do with them, I decided to try me some banana bread.
So after looking up a few recipes online I came across this one from a site called baker chick.
It was a simple recipe with no additions, but it was absolutely delicious. This is one of those go to recipes that once you try you will come back to it again and again. I followed the recipe to the T except that I added half the quantity of white sugar as I didn’t want my banana bread to be too sweet. The next time I try it, I would definitely add some cinnamon and throw in some walnuts as well.
Recipe Source: Best ever banana bread
100 gms melted butter(salted)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown(demerara) sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 and 1/2 cups maida flour(white flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
200 gms curd or yogurt
3 ripe bananas mashed.
Bake for 25 minutes at 180’c in a 9 X 13 inch baking tray. Preheat oven to 180’C for 10 minutes.
I started off by melting butter and adding it to the white and brown sugar and whisking it well.
I then added the 2 tsps of vanilla extract and mixed in the eggs one at a time stirring well after each addition.
Add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir to mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
Add the mashed banana and mix. Pour into a 9 by 13 inch baking tray.
Bake at 180’c for 25-30 mins.
Wait to cool until slicing and eating. As you can see here, I clearly didn’t(couldn’t) wait.
