Banana Bread is a very famous fruit bread. Adding nuts especially walnuts gives a nice nutty flavour to the bread. It works well for breakfast or as a snack.
I’ve been making Banana bread for a long time but it needed some tweaking to balance the banana flavour and the nut flavour. Finally this recipe is loved by the kids and now I make it often.
This is a simple recipe which doesn’t even require a mixer. A fork and spatula does the work.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time : 50 minutes
Serves : 4
Ripe Bananas : 3
Melted unsalted butter: 5 tablespoons
Baking soda: 1 teaspoon
Salt : A pinch
Sugar : 3/4 cup
Egg: 1 large
Vanilla extract: 1 teaspoon. (If you want to serve it with coffee, add 1/2 teaspoon of Coffee extract)
Nutmeg: 1/4 teaspoon
All purpose flour: 1 1/2 cups
Chopped Walnuts : 1/2 cup
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until its smooth. Add melted butter to the bananas and mix well.
Beat the egg in a small bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients except walnuts and mix well. Once the batter is ready, add the nuts and give it a stir.
Grease or place a parchment paper in the bread pan and pour in the batter.
Bake the bread for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from middle of the bread.
Take the bread from the oven, cool it for 10 minutes and slice into pieces with a bread knife.
Serve hot with coffee or cold as is.
