How to make banana bread

This is my husband’s recipe, which he has mastered over the years for Banana Almond Pie Pan Cake and for which he is renowned. He makes it on a regular basis, and it still sells out! It’s fast and easy to produce, and it’s our favourite way to stop wasting overripe bananas. It’s super fluffy and making a perfect on-the-go meal. This recipe also resulted in Banana Muffins.

Flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, vanilla extract, softened butter, milk, and, of course, really ripe bananas are what you’ll need to produce the perfect banana bread. It’s optional to add walnuts and raisins, but they add great flavour and texture, making it into a banana nut loaf.

Yes, please! If the raisins and walnuts are left out in chewy oatmeal date raisin nut cookies, the recipe will still work. Due to a walnut deficiency in the household, we still keep it nut-free.

If your bananas are still a little green and you want them to ripen faster, put them on a baking sheet and bake them at 250°F for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on their initial ripeness.

Bananas and recipes

My sister Anna turned this into a honey banana bread by omitting the sugar and mixing it with honey. Instead of all-purpose flour, use organic whole wheat flour. 1 tbsp ground flaxseed in place of 1 tbsp flour. When using very mature bananas, will the sugar to 1/2 cup; they can add plenty of sweetness.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the white, sugar, brown sugar and butter and blend with a hand mixer about 90 seconds. Add the eggs, buttermilk, yogurt and vanilla and blend together well. In another mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cardamom and blend. Pour half into the wet ingredients and blend well, then add the remainder and blend well. Add the walnuts and blend in well. Add the banana pieces, fold in gently. Grease a bread pan well. Pour batter in and bake in a preheated 350 oven about 60-75 minutes. After about 35-40 minutes, cover the top of the bread with a foil tent, so it won’t get too brown. Do the toothpick test to check for doneness. Remove to a cooling rack.
