Banana Bread

Banana Bread

I purchased a bag of ripe bananas from a local grocery store. There was a recipe for banana bread on the bag. I tried it and the recipe is a keeper. The bread has a cake like texture.

If you have just one banana at home, try making Paniyaram.

The ingredients below makes one loaf of banana bread.


  • Sugar – 3/4 cup
  • Butter – 8 tbsps, plus more for the pan at room temperature
  • Eggs – 2
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp
  • All purpose flour – 1 cup, plus more for the pan
  • Whole wheat flour – 1 cup, I used chapathi flour
  • Very ripe large bananas – 3, mashed
  • Walnut or any nuts – 1/2 cup, chopped
  • Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Grease a 9 x 5 x 3″ loaf pan with butter.
  • Dust the pan with flour and tap out the excess flour
  • Sift all-purpose flour, wheat flour, baking soda and salt together in a bowl.
  • Beat butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until creamy.
  • Add eggs and beat until well combined.
  • Add vanilla extract and mix.
  • Add the flour mixture little by little to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Add the mashed bananas and chopped nuts. Mix until well combined.
  • Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, rotate the pan half way through baking (or until a cake tester comes out clean).
  • Let the bread cool down in the pan for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the bread from the pan and let it cool down completely on a wire rack.
