I noticed that my bananas were going black and whenever that happens, you know what time it is?! BANANA BREAD MAKIN' TIME!! mmmmmmmm I absolutely LOVE banana bread especially when it is nice and moist!!!!<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
I got the recipe from this site: http://www.foodnetwork.ca/recipes/Dessert/Eggs-Dairy/recipe.html?dishid=5918
- 2 or 3 very ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup/250 ml)
- 1/4 cup honey (60 ml)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla (7 ml)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar (60 ml)
- 1 cup plain yogurt, full fat (250 ml)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (30 ml)
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (375 ml)
- 2 teaspoons baking soda (10 ml)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (2 ml)
- Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
- 1 ripe banana, sliced, to bake on top of bread as a garnish (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Lightly grease a 4-inch X 8-inch loaf pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mash bananas. Add the honey, vanilla, sugar, yogurt and oil. Mix with a spoon or spatula to combine.
- Sift flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg onto parchment paper or another bowl. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the banana mixture until just combined.
- Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Line banana slices decoratively on top of the batter, if desired. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, until golden and tester comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 30 minutes. Flip onto a wire rack and cool completely. Cut into 8 to 10 slices. Serve.
Also instead of using the yogurt, I used 3/4 butter milk and 1/4 apple sauce and I also added 1tsp of cinnamon. I think this recipe came out pretty good with the alterations, but I wonder if it would be any moister with the yogurt? Just like I'm on the search with soft Chocolate Chip cookies, I'm on the same search with finding a recipe that makes moist banana bread!!!anyway enjoy :)
