Yummy yummy yummy... This is the first time I ever tried making banana bread and I am just loving it. One of my friends in orkut shared this amazing recipe with me...And as I had so many overripened bananas wts better than baking a banana bread? So here it goes.
I made this recipe using all purpose flour but i wud suggest u to use wheat flour as it enhances the taste.:)
1 cup White Sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (U can even use oil instead of butter)
11/2 cup All Purpose Flour (or wheat flour)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1tsp Baking Soda
3 Mashed Bananas
1 cup Chopped Nuts (walnut) U can add any other nuts u want...(I added prunes and chocolate chips to the bread batter)
1 pinch Salt
I made changes in this recipe when i made my next bread well anyways that a different recipe all together...:P
Pre-heat oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit (175 degree Celsius).
Take a nice metal bread loaf pan...or u can even use the foil loaf pans that u get in market.
Grease and flour the cake pan. How to do this? Well just apply cold butter to the insides of ur pan. Put 1 tbsp of flour inside the pan. Now cover the pan with a cling wrap and then shake it well so that the flour coats on all sides of the pan. This is an easy and mess free way to do this.
Next, In small bowl sift together flour, baking soda and salt.
Separate the egg whites and the yolks and keep aside.
Mash the bananas in a seperate bowl.Keep aside.
In a big mixing bowl cream butter and sugar together. Now add the egg yolks and vanilla extract and beat well.
Now mix in the mashed bananas. next add the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the creamed mixture. Mix with light hand only to combine, and not too much. Stir in the nuts.( In my case the assorted nuts and the chocolate chips...:)...)
In another bowl beat the egg whites until stiff. See that u dont beat too.Fold the egg whites in the batter and mix well with light hands. Pour the batter into the greased pans. Decorate with banana slices or nuts...:)
Bake at 350-degree Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool it. Cut into slices and serve hot along with ur coffee and tea.
Amazing Isnt it?? Do try this recipe and let me know ur views...:D
