Been craving for some home-made dessert for a while now. So decided to snap out of my lazy stupor and bake something. There were a few over ripe bananas sitting in the fruit basket - ideal for baking banana bread (egg less).
This is the first bread I learnt to bake few years back (after having tasted the banana walnut bread at ICRISAT Hyderabad). Moist, delicious and wholesome. And folks at home love it.
1 cup sugar ( Indian granulated white sugar or brown sugar)
3 bananas (ripe)
4 tbsp melted unsalted butter
2 tbsp curds/dahi
1 and 1/2 cup all purpose flour (maida)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence or extract
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1tsp cinnamon powder
Pre Heat oven to 350 degree fahrenheit / 180 degree centigrade. Blend the bananas, add sugar, curds and mix. Add butter, salt, and flour till incorporated. Mix the baking soda with the milk and add it to the above mix along with the vanilla essence. Mix in the walnuts and cinnamon
powder and stir till everything is well blended. Pour this batter into a greased bread tin and bake for about 50-60 minutes or till a tooth pick inserted comes out dry.
