Do you love the smell of baked goods in your house? Isn’t it just perfect? It is so comforting and brings out so many beautiful emotions. Banana bread is not just incredibly flavorful, but it is also very aromatic!
Just that’s not all!
I sound like a tv marketer.
The crunch and flavor that walnuts give to it and how everything goes so well together is amazing!!! I guess you’ll have to try it to experience it yourself. And hey, Christmas is just around the corner, so it is a perfect time for baking. This banana bread will add a beautiful and delicious touch to your Christmas table.
So let’s go!
- 4 ripe Bananas (black bananas are the best!)
- 3/4 cup of Sugar
- 115 g of melted Butter
- 2 large Eggs
- 250 g of All-purpose flour
- 1 tsp of Baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 heap tbsp of Yoghurt (Greek or Natural)
- 100 g of crushed Walnuts
Peel the bananas and crush them with the fork until puree consistency. Put it aside. In a separate bowl add sugar and melted butter and whisk them together. Then add 2 large eggs and whisk again. In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking soda. Now add the flour mixture to the egg, sugar and butter mixture. Whisk until everything comes together. Then add the yoghurt and pureed bananas and stir until everything is combined. Finally incorporate crushed walnuts and that is it, the hard part is done.
I know what you’re thinking – ‘that was the hard part?!’. Yes it was, so just imagine the easy part 🙂
Cover the baking tray with butter or baking spray and put your mixture in. Bake it on 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) in the pre-heated oven, with the fan off, for around an hour. After 30 minutes of baking I would recommend covering it up with aluminum foil to stop it from browning too much.
To check if it’s baked, poke it with a cake tester or a tooth pick. If it comes out clean – it’s ready.
Let it cool down for a couple of minutes before serving it. A scoop of vanilla ice cream goes a long way with it!
