Well, at least according to me and my friends, who enjoyed it a lot while we were staying in the cabin. I guess, we left the place a bit more happier and with a bit chubbier cheeks 😀 Naaah, we walked a lot, so all the pies aka banana breads don’t count.
And the recipe is so easy you would probably be making one today! So, if you have basic ingredients for baking (flour, eggs, butter, etc.) roll up your sleeves and get to working 😉
- 115 g butter
- 250 ml suggar (1 cup)
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 3-4 bananas, finely crushed (you know, the ones that already started to ripen, with brown dots on the peel-the best ones!)
- 375 ml flour (1½ cups)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon vanilla (optional)
1.Preheat the oven to 175º C. 2.Cream together butter and sugar. I tried to do it with both room temperature butter, and melted butter – it works fine both ways. Also, if you don’t have butter, you can use coconut oil – it is a nice substitute ( a bit healthier, but also high in calories, just so you know). 3. Add beaten eggs and crushed bananas and combine well. 4. Mix together flour, soda and salt and add to creamed mixture. Add vanilla if you prefer. 5. Mix just until combined (I use a spatula for this – it is a good choice for mixing a batter). 6. Pour into greased and floured loaf pan. 7. And finally – bake at 175 degrees for 55 minutes.
If you like dark chocolate (as obviously I do), you can chop some in small pieces and add to the mixture while you are adding flour. The melted pieces truly add some flavour to the banana bread. Oh, and if you eat it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, you’ll be in heaven for sure 😛
Have a great Sunday, and let me know if you try this!
