Don't you have days when you crave for something sweet but easy to bake, and perhaps healthy? I do. And recently I was wondering how to make banana bread and I found out - the result is delicious :)
So here it is the recipe I used:
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- vanilla sugar or vanilla essence
- 100 gr butter
- 3 eggs
- 4 bananas
- baking powder
- baking paper
estimated time: baking 1 hour + 20 min preparation
Start by preheating the oven at 180 degrees.
Then separate the egg yolks from the white parts and mix the white parts very very well, with just a pinch of salt.
In another bowl, mix the yolks with sugar, vanilla sugar. the flour, butter and baking powder. The baking powder needs to be mixed with some lemon juice before.
You can peel the bananas and blend them or just use a fork for this purpose.
Then you can add the bananas in the bowl with flour and at the end add the white parts and mix gently.
Now it's the moment to pour the entire mix in a tray which you covered with baking paper before.
Put it in the oven at 180 degrees C and leave it there, without opening the door for one hour.
After one hour, you can check if it's ready - the wooden stick test - and if it'sok, still leave it in oven for 10-15 min to get colder.
You can serve it like this or next to vanilla ice- cream. It makes a perfect cake for coffee or tea.
