Everyone loves banana bread, but the ones you find in stores are mostly artificial and filled with preservatives. Making homemade banana bread is much healthier and easier than you might think! In fact, it’s one of the easiest types of baked goods you can make from scratch at home. There are lots of different banana bread recipes out there; some have nuts, others have spices, and many add chocolate. But what if you’re not a fan of any of those things? Perhaps you’d rather have a simple loaf that lets the natural flavors of the banana shine through. That’s what we will be covering here! So let’s get started…
What You’ll Need
First, you’ll need some basic ingredients for this recipe. You can use either very ripe bananas or unripe bananas for this loaf. If you use very ripe bananas, make sure to mash the bananas well. This will help the bread to rise properly. You’ll also need flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, butter (or margarine), sugar, and milk. And if you want to add some nuts, that’s up to you. You’ll also need either a loaf pan or a regular baking pan. You’ll need to preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C. You’ll also need a mixing bowl, a whisk, a baking tray, and a baking/baking paper (optional). If you use bananas that aren’t very ripe, make sure to use baking paper to prevent the banana bread from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Step 1: Mash The Bananas
First, mash the bananas in a bowl or a large measuring cup with a fork or a potato masher. Make sure that you remove any brown spots from the bananas, as they will make your bread taste bitter. There’s no need to peel the bananas, as the skin is full of fibre. But you can certainly remove it if you want to.
Step 2: Add The Eggs and Oil
Next, add the eggs and oil to the bowl with the mashed bananas. If you’re using margarine for the oil, be sure to leave the bread to cool before you eat it, as margarine melts at room temperature.
Step 3: Mix In The Flour
Add the flour and any other dry ingredients to the bowl. Mix the ingredients with a spoon or a whisk until they are well combined.
Step 4: Add the toppings
If you’re adding any toppings, now’s the time to add them. Experiment with different ingredients and find out what combination you like best. Think about the flavors and textures: bananas are sweet, so any savoury toppings might not taste too good. Some options include walnuts, chocolate chips, coconut flakes, or a sprinkling of cinnamon. You can also use mix-ins like oats or raisins.
– If you want to eat the banana bread when it’s still warm, use a smaller loaf pan and reduce the baking time by about 15 minutes.
All that’s left to do now is wait for the banana bread to bake! Banana bread is best served warm, so it’s a great treat to make on a weekend or when you’re hosting a party. You can also make banana bread for breakfast (it’s a great way to use up those overripe bananas). You can enjoy it on its own, toast it, or use it as a spread in a sandwich. No matter how you eat it, you can’t go wrong with this classic and delicious treat. And the best part is that it’s easy to make at home. So what are you waiting for? Make yourself a slice of homemade banana bread and enjoy!
