Banana bread recipes allow you to transform spotty brown bananas into a moist loaf of bread. However, many of these recipes are high in fat and calories. How to make delicious banana bread, not only good taste but also good for health? Follow me to learn this recipe.
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup (2 medium bananas) mashed bananas
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
☆ Make sure your bananas, butter and eggs are all at room temperature and gather the ingredients.
☆ Preheat your oven to 350℃ and grease the pan, prepare 1 loaf and 6-8 muffins. You can even bake it in small glassware.
☆ Add butter and sugar to a bowl of the mixer, blend on low until combined and then increase speed until light and fluffy(3-5 minutes).
☆ Crack and add eggs to the mixture one at a time, incorporating after each addition. Add bananas and blend on low until combined. The mixture will appear to curdle or separate and that’s alright.
☆ Add the remaining milk and vanilla to the mixture and mix just until combined.
☆ Add the flour to the bowl and the other ingredients on top of it. Mix on the medium speed until mixture has come together and is thick and creamy.
☆ Stir in nuts, berries or chocolate chips. Wet fruit will alter and make things a bitter soggy, so pre-plumbed dried fruit instead.
☆ Pour into prepared pan and smooth surface with a spatula, place in preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Straight out of the oven to cool the warm bread for a few minutes and release from the pan, then you can enjoy it.
☂ Make sure that you use over-ripe bananas when making banana bread. The best bananas to use are ones that don’t need to be cut or mashed too much to easily blend into the batter.
☂ Don’t use bananas that have mold on them! They will make you sick.
