Banana Bread

Banana Bread-43242

Banana Bread, it’s on my – To do list – for a while now, but i never had the courage to try it, not until i taste it at a friends birthday party.
Moist, fluffy, sweet! Piece of cake!

You’ll need:

  • Butter – 120g
  • All purpose flour – 250g
  • Sugar – 200g (i want to try it without sugar, maybe with honey)
  • Eggs – 2
  • Bananas – 3 (heavily speckled)
  • Baking soda – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Water – 3 spoons hot water

Method:

Whisk the melted butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs and mix it well. 
In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients: flour + salt + baking soda. Slowly add the mixed butter, stirring gently until the batter is smooth enough. Then add the smashed bananas, hot water – 3 tablespoons, and mix everything. Now would be a good time to add nuts, raisins or whatever you want to make it crunchy.
Cover your tray with parchment paper and then pour the cake mixture.
Transfer it to the oven and bake it for about an hour – 180C, or until golden-brown.

    This looks absolutely delicious! I see from a small note you’ve made in the ingredients’ section that you want to try it without sugar. I’ve tried it with date syrup and I highly recommend that. It tastes great, the banana flavor blends perfectly with the dates! I also add more bananas, thereby sweetening the cake without the added sugars! You may want to have a look at the recipe:

    It’s used with gluten-free flour, but you can use regular flour instead. Great blog btw 🙂
