Banana Bread

There were few ripe bananas sitting in the fruit basket. Quick bread was the quick choice. So baked this Banana bread. It is a delicious breakfast recipe.

Original recipe from Joy of Baking

All-purpose flour, 1 3/4 cups
White sugar, 3/4 cups
Baking powder, 1 Teaspoon
Baking soda, 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt, 1/4 Teaspoon
Ground cinnamon, 1 Teaspoon
Eggs, 2 nos.
Unsalted butter, 1/2 cup
Ripe bananas, 3 nos.

Vanilla Extract, 1 Teaspoon

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare the 9*5 inch loaf pan  by greasing and dusting the flour and set it aside.
  2. Mash the bananas well. Melt the butter also lightly beat the eggs and keep them ready.
  3. In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients together. (Flour, Sugar, Baking powder, Baking soda,salt and ground cinnamon).
  4. In another bowl, add the mashed bananas, melted butter, eggs and vanilla extract and mix them together.
  5. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and mix them till they form a homogenous mixture. But donot over mix the dough.
  6. Place the dough in the prepared loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes till the bread is golden brown and the tooth pick inserted in the centre should come out clean.
  7. Let the bread cool down before removing from the pan.
  8. Let the bread rest overnight and then slice and serve.
