Banana Bread

It is not the first time I am making banana breads, but this is the very first time I am happy about the end product, and I love it. My lil monster comes home super hungry from daycare. And I want to have healthy snacks in stock. Also, I myself am a great fan of plain banana bread/cake. Again, this is a very simple yet an absolute treat, well, I know, you cannot go wrong with banana bread.  


Banana - 2 medium, mashed
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Eggs - 2, medium
Butter - 2 tablespoon
Vanilla - 1/2 teaspoon
Nuts (of your choice) - 2 tablespoon (optional)

Mashed the bananas well. Add the eggs to it and mix well. You do not have to beat them up, just mix well.

Add the vanilla to it. Keep aside. Pre-heat the oven at 180C.

Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder together. Add the softened butter to it.

Add the wet mix to the dry mix and mix well.

Flour the pan/tray. Pour into your bread pan. I wanted them to be in small pieces for evening snack so used this tray instead. Spread the nuts on top of it. You can mix the nuts into the batter before pouring. I forgot to do it, so spread it on top.

Bake at 180C for 50 min or until fork comes out clean. Again, I used the convection mode of my microwave and I am really impressed. I cut them in a sort of  brownies like.

It came out very good. I loved the soft inside and crispy top layer. And it tastes so yummy.

This banana bread/cake/brownies turned out so well. I am certainly making this again too soon.

The father-daughter duo started to wipe them out.

 So, I have to quickly store them up.

Baking is so relaxing and bonus, your house smells divine.

What are you doing this October?
