From My Kitchen: Banana Bread

Last weekend we harvested a bunch of bananas in our backyard. So it’s been bananas every day for breakfast and afternoon snack. Time to pull out the recipe for this delicious and super simple banana bread that I make whenever I have extra bananas on hand.

Ingredients:

4-5 ripe bananas, mashed

2 eggs

3/4 cup of sugar

1 3/4 cups of wheat flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1/2 cup of cooking oil

chopped nuts (or raisins soaked in rum, chopped prunes, pistachios, Brazil nuts, dried cranberries)

confectioner’s sugar (optional)

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).

Beat the eggs with the sugar until creamy, alternately add the sifted flour mixed with baking powder and baking soda and the cooking oil. Turn off the mixer and with the help of a spatula incorporate the bananas and chopped nuts. You can also use any of the alternative ingredients or a combination of several of them.

Bake in a poundcake form that has been greased and dusted with flour for about 40 min or until an inserted knife comes out clean.

Before serving dust with confectioner’s sugar if desired.

Enjoy!
