BM #81 Week 2 Day 2 -

Over the summer, I was casually talking to my friend when she told me that she has a lot of over ripe bananas and she usually throws them out. I was shocked and I then told her that over ripe bananas work best in a bread. She promptly sent me the over ripe bananas saying baking the bread wasn't her cup of tea. 

That was when I looked up my bookmarks and found this treasured recipe. Suma writes that this is the best ever recipe for a banana bread and I couldn't agree more. 

I shared the bread with my friend and she agreed that the bananas were best in the bread!! Needless to say my kids loved the bread. The most surprising thing was my older one who cannot tolerate bananas in baked goods, was very enthusiastic about finishing off the bread!

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 cup
All Purpose Flour / Maida 1 cup
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
All Spice Powder 1/4 tsp
Butter 1/2 cup
Sugar (white) 1/2 cup
Brown Sugar 1/2 cup (I used a little less)
Milk 1/4 cup (I used up to 1/2 cup)
Apple Cider Vinegar 1 tsp
Banana puree from 3 medium bananas
Walnuts about 1/2 cup

Method Of Preparation -

Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Puree the bananas and set aside.

Mix milk and vinegar and set aside.

Whisk the flours, baking soda, salt and all spice powder in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle the chopped walnuts setting aside a few for the topping.

Cream the butter and sugar (both white and brown). Add in the pureed bananas and milk-vinegar mixture.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients until well combined.

Grease a loaf pan and gently pour the batter into it. Sprinkle the remaining walnuts on top.

Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a tester comes out clean when inserted in the center.

Let the bread cool for a few minutes. Transfer onto another tray and slice after a few hours.

Enjoy with a glass of milk for a snack!
