It has been a while since I last baked. And by ‘a while’, I mean a good year perhaps, so I was a little nervous about baking something for someone. I know how much my dad loves banana bread, and I was craving for some. It shouldn’t be too hard right?
There are many versions of banana bread, I like mine especially moist, and thanks to my chef cousin, who gave me her favourite recipe. Here are some of the ingredients required.
The recipe is as follows:
78 g of unsalted butter
155 g of flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
85g of honey
80g of brown sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp salt
225g of mashed bananas (preferably ripe)
1 tsp vanilla
155g choc chips (optional – for those who loves chocolate!)
180 degrees @ 25 – 30mins
Beat egg on its own until fluffy
Put in bowl: flour, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, salt and vanilla and mix well
Add butter and egg into the mixture
In a separate bowl: mash bananas and put in above mixture
Take out baking bread container and slither with butter, so that the bread does not stick
Pour mixture into the container
I like to add a few bananas on top
Put in oven for 25 – 30 minutes at 180 degrees and voila:
As you can see, the banana bread is a little thin, my dad usually likes them thin – portion control he says, so if you want it bigger, then double everything above.
Was it good? I will have to ask my dad, however, I did have a slither, and it was moist, had fresh banana bits in it and was good! Especially when it’s warm and served with butter. I reduced the sugar and honey, as my dad is not allowed to eat too much of it.
If it wasn’t for dad, I would have added some choc chips, and the choc chip would give it a nice chocolatey flavour.
