Banana, Walnut Bread

 My aunt had visited me two years back from Mumbai and she bakes awesome cakes and bread. She actually was the one who taught me the baking tricks with lot of good tips. She baked this bread while she was in my house and since then I have baked it too many times. I always wanted to blog about it but never really got a chance to take some pictures, which I finally did yesterday. A perfect bread to have with a hot cup of tea or coffee in the evenings

Ingredients:

All purpose flour-2 cups

Powdered sugar– 1 cup

Bananas- 3 (fully ripened and big ones)

baking soda-1 tsp

walnut-1/4 cup (chopped into small pieces)

olive oil– 1/4 cup

Preparation: In a large bowl mash the bananas really well and add powdered sugar and mix well. Add olive oil and walnut, mix until it has incorporated well into the mixture. Sieve all purpose flour along with baking soda. Divide the flour into 3 to 4 batches and add each batch of flour to the mixture slowly and mix. Make sure to have mixed the flour in one direction to avoid uneven mixing. Grease and flour the baking pan (I used 9 inch loaf pan) and add the mixture evenly. Preheat oven to 350°F and bake the bread for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes clear when inserted in the center. Cool it for 5-10 minutes, Make sure the edges of the bread are clear from the pan (Insert a blunt knife and make it clear, making sure not to touch the base of the pan) before inverting. Do not keep the bread out for too long as it might loose its softness.

    Hi Deepti…stumbled upon your blog today love it. Regarding the banana bread recipe, can i replace olive oil with butter? if so by how much ?

    Thanku

    • Hey Shilpa,
      I have never tried baking it with butter, so I don’t think I can help you with it. Instead of olive oil we can use vegetable oil. Same measurement as of oilve oil can be used. Let me know if you bake it.
      Thanks!
      Deepti
