Bananas get over ripe so quickly in hot weather. Every now and then a bunch of bananas leaning toward a shade of black, I know it’s time for a banana bread.
After trying so many recipes, adding nuts, spices, chocolate chips or even cream cheese frosting, still this simple classic recipe is my favorite one, making me wish my bananas get over ripe with no regrets.
The more ripe the bananas are, the more precious. Dark bananas are black gold! They give you this deep intense caramel flavor especially with the brown sugar. So to do this we need:
- 4 slightly over ripe bananas
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
Preheat oven (180°C). In a mixing bowl combine mashed bananas ( simply with a fork when really ripe), oil, egg, vanilla and mix.
Then add sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix all to finally toss in the flour and combine.
Pour the batter in a greased and floured baking pan (10″) and bake for 45- 50 minutes. Start checking from minute 40 until a wooden pick comes out clean.
Allow to cool before removing from pan!
Whether for breakfast or afternoon snack, this is your ticket for anytime of the day. All the family favor this banana lo
If you wish for individual parcels, just bake it in the muffin tray and enjoy!
