Delicious Banana Bread

Banana Bread

Banana bread is a delicious and filling dessert. It’s a cake or bread loaf made of bananas. Beautiful flavours of banana and cinnamon combine to make this melt in your mouth sliceful of taste. Infact this is a best way to use ripe bananas which you know won’t be using for next few days. You can even serve these with the evening tea or give a slice to your kids or husband in their lunch box as an after lunch dessert. Dense and delicious, let’s make this banana bread now.You'll note when baked correctly, how easily it comes out of the tin! 

Serves 4
Cooking Time 1 hour

2 ripe Bananas
1 ½ cup flour/ Maida
¾ cup sugar
1 egg
Milk 1 tbsp
Cinnamon powder 1 tsp
Butter ½ cup ( salted or unsalted both work fine)
Baking powder 1 tsp
Baking soda ½ tsp

  • PreHeat the oven to 180 degree C or 350 F.
  • In a mixer or with electric whisk, mix bananas, sugar, butter and egg till they make a smooth paste.
  • Take it out in a bowl, and fold in flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda till you get a ribbony consistency and make a smooth shiny paste. Add the milk to adjust the consistency.
  • Grease a baking tin with butter. You can take a big round tray or a bread loaf tin. Please note, take the tin so that it gets only half full with the batter.
  • Bake in the over at 170 C or 340 F for 1 hour. Check after 45 mins by inserting a knife in the middle, and it should come out clean. If required, bake for additional 10 mins till the crust gets light brown.
  • Once baked, take it out of the tin by gently clearing the sides using a spoon handle or knife, and turning it upside down on a grill rack. Let it cool for atleast 30 mins before cutting into slices.
  • Serve hot with ice cream or just like that!

Chef Tip: You can also add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder in the batter to make a chocolate banana cake! See the recipe and pics HERE.
Always keep the cake in airtight container if keeping in fridge.
