How to make Banana Bread


For the love of bananas, recently I discovered another way to enjoy them. I learnt how to make banana bread. I've always wanted to learn to bake but shied away due to the fact that I did not have an electric mixer and whatnots. The good thing about this recipe is that I get to bake without all those sophisticated stuff. Literally, all I need to do is put them all in a bowl and stir, pour the dough in the baking tin and toss in the oven. That's it. that's literally it.

Well, if you do not believe me or want more details like portions and co, then keep reading.

List of ingredients
1. 2 over ripe bananas
2. 2 eggs
3. 80g melted butter or margarine
4. 40g sugar (white sugar, coconut sugar)
5. 1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
6. 2 tablespoons of milk
7. 80g flour
8. 1 tablespoon Baking powder
9. 1 teaspoon Baking soda
10. 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
11. 1/2 teaspoon cinammon


How to Make Banana Bread

1. Mash your bananas in a mixing bowl. You can use a fork. This should be easy if your bananas are over ripe.

2. Add 2 eggs to mashed bananas and beat

3. Add melted butter (seriously discovering that melted butter actually works revolutionalised my thinking about baking. I always stayed away from baking due to the time and energy needed to cream butter without an electric mixer)

4. Add vanilla extract and milk. Stir.

5. Add sieved sugar and stir. I discovered coconut sugar recently and it has been such an amazing ingredient. It has a special sweet taste and colours whatever you use it in brown. I use both white sugar and coconut sugar just so my coconut sugar can last.

6. Add sieved flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon. Stir all. I use a spatula to stir

7. Add raisins or nuts (optional)


Your dough is ready
8. Pour into your prepared baking tin. I prepare my tin by rubbing some butter on all inner surfaces of the tin and spreading flour to touch all corners of the tin.


9. Preheat oven to 165 degrees and place tin at the lower cadre of oven.

10. Bring out after 35 mins and stick a toothpick in it to make sure it is dry.
If dry, your banana bread/cake is ready.

And I was privileged to eat this yummilicious cake!
Please how did you melt the butter?

Hi chi. It was a pleasure to host you. I melt the butter with the microwave. Make sure to turn it on low or medium low and don’t leave it unattended

Awesome post. Thanks for sharing this post with us. The first issue that strikes those conversant in the primary generation pill is that the new model is perceptibly dilutant. there's plain less bulk once control within the hand, which may solely be a decent issue considering the seemingly uses for such a mobile device. 80g

I made these today for my 11 month old, and she loves them! I used agave nectar instead of honey, added fresh strawberries, and cooked them in a mini muffin pan so I can freeze them and pull them out for a quick breakfast. Thanks so much for the recipe!
