another Sunday’s here. Today I wanna show you my favourite banana loaf recipe.
I don’t know if banana loaf is one of the common pastries where you come from but I personally love it as my breakfast or for a snack now and then.
So let’s start with the recipe:
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 egg
- 4 tbsp. oil (e.g. sunflower oil)
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 100 gr (1/2 cup) white (granulated) sugar
- 1 tbsp. vanilla sugar
- 300 gr (2 1/4 cups) flour
- 1 tbsp. baking soda
- 4 tbsp. raisins (optional)
Preheat the oven to 356 F/180 C and mash the bananas with a fork to a mushy consistency. I like it a bit clumpy, but you can make it as mushy as you like.
Add all the ingredients except the flour, baking soda and the raisins and mix everything well. The riper the bananas are, the less sugar you need. Usually I add sugar by instinct, but I wouldn’t use more than half a cup.
Add the flour and baking soda and stir the dough until smooth. Additionally you can add raisins at this point.
Put your loaf into a greased loaf pan and bake your loaf for 45 mins.
Cut your banana loaf in slices and serve it with some honey or other spread (e.g. Nutella).
If you never ate banana loaf before, you should definitely give it a try! It’s delicious!
If you try it out, let me know!
Have a lovely start into the week!
