Easy Walnut Banana Bread Recipe
This is an easy and delicious recipe that’s great to employ when you want to save those forgotten, overripe bananas.
What we really like about this banana bread, is how soft it is and how well it preserves for up to a week (depending on your own eating habits:)
You could change this recipe up in several ways: you could cover the loaf in sugar icing or chocolate or swap the sugar for honey.
You will need:
- 3-4 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of sugar
- less than half a cup of oil or melted butter
- a pinch of salt
- a teaspoon baking powder
- walnuts or raisins
This recipe is quick to prepare so I’d advise you to turn your oven on before starting to mix your ingredients, to make sure you have the perfect temperature(170 degrees Celsius, or 330 Fahrenheit) when you’re done.
Firstly, mash the bananas with a blender or a fork, until a smooth puree is formed. In another bowl, mix together, until soft and foamy, the sugar, salt and oil or butter.
Once your mixture is soft and airy, add the smashed bananas and the eggs and mix well, until homogeneous. Add the walnuts (you can use any kind of nuts you want) or raisins. To change the mix of flavours you could add in a bit of orange peel, but be careful not to put too much, as you’ll lose the soft, comforting flavour of the banana.
Mix the baking powder into the flour, the pour into your existing mixture. Pour the mixture into a bread pan, that’s been previously dresses in baking paper.
Bake for 45 minutes or until cooked in the middle and enjoy!
