What to do when the sweet yellow bananas you bought start to get brownish and way too sweet? Make a banana bread.
I made this one yesterday, using the following recipe.
- 90g melted butter
- 2 eggs
- 100 g sugar
- 1 bag (8g) of vanilla sugar
- 250g flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3 very ripe bananas
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Whisk eggs and sugar together, until sugar has completely dissolved. You should obtain a yellowish, smooth cream.
Slowly add butter, and keep stirring.
Apart mix all dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and baking powder). Add to the sugar-egg-butter mix and stir well.
Then add the mashed bananas.
You can also add chocolate chips or a dash of cinnamon or chopped nut, but that’s optional.
Pour batter into a greased and floured loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour.
I like a piece of it in the morning with a cappuccino, in the afternoon with some tea, or in the evening, after dinner, with a sprinkle of icing sugar and a glass of milk.
Please note that I wrote “or in the evening”! I’m not eating three pieces of banana bread a day…at least not every day! 😉
