Home Made With D: Banana Bread

I know it’s only been 4 days since I last baked anything (Brazo De Mercedes) but that Brazo didn’t last long ‘coz it was sooo frickin’ GOOD! It now lives happily ever after in our bellies.

So what am I to do with my dying bananas?

B-A-N-A-N-A BREAD!

Here is a recipe that I’ve been using since forever. It’s super simple and easy.

If you like your banana bread nice and moist, this is the recipe you’d definitely want to try!

🙂

RECIPE

Ingredients: 3 Dying Bananas, 1 Egg, 1 Egg Yolk, 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract, 1/3 cup Buttermilk, 1/2 cup Oil, 1 cup Brown Sugar, 3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda, 1/4 teaspoon Salt, 1 cup All Purpose Flour

Preheat oven to 350F

Step 1 — In a blender, add your over ripe bananas, buttermilk and oil then blend for about 5-10 seconds ’til it’s smooth.

Tip: You can also mush the bananas however you like. I personally, prefer to use a blender to save me some time 🙂

Step 2 — Transfer the blended bananas to a medium sized bowl.

Step 3 — Add all your brown sugar and whisk away!

Step 4 — Drop your eggs and vanilla extract and whisk away again!

… Not too much tho 🙂

Step 5 — Once you are done adding all your wet ingredients, you can now add the dry ingredients to your bowl.

Tip: Don’t forget to either sift or whisk all your dry ingredients together first. I also split the flour mixture in half to avoid lumps rather than just dumping all the flour mixture at once. DO NOT OVER MIX

Step 6 — Grease your 9×5 in. loaf pan.

Tip: I’m already using a non-stick loaf pan so I just lightly sprayed my pan.

Step 7 — This is optional, but you can now fold in some chocolate chips, walnuts, m&m’s, or whatever you want to add to your banana bread batter.

Step 8 — Pour your banana bread batter to your greased loaf pan.

Step 9 — Tap your loaf pan on a hard surface about 3 times to pop some of the air bubbles in the batter and then bake in the oven for about 50-60minutes or just until it’s done.

Tip: Once you are about 40 minutes in, loosely cover the top with aluminum foil to avoid the top from getting too dark or from burning.

Step 10 — Use a cake tester to check if it’s done.

Tip: You’ll know it’s done when your cake tester comes out clean. You can also tell by just gently feeling/tapping the top of the banana bread with your fingers.

Last Step — Cool down before taking it out of the loaf pan. Once it’s completely cooled down, give yourself a high five and have a slice of your delicious banana bread 🙂

Enjoy!
