Traditional Banana Bread

I am still having bananas ripening at lightening speed. There doesn’t seem to be too many good banana bread recipes, especially ones that require only a couple of banana’s. So here is a version I just made today.

Traditional Banana Bread

  • 1/3 cup of butter melted
  • 3 ripe bananas mashed with a fork
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain yoghurt
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar

Preheat oven to 350

Melt butter and peel and mash bananas. Combine in a medium bowl adding eggs, vanilla, spices, milk and yoghurt. Mix well.

In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients and mix well. Combine wet ingredients and dry ingredients until you have an even consistency. It is ok if you have little chunks of banana, most people don’t mind the texture, so unless you have kids or picky texture eaters you don’t have to ensure total smoothness.

Grease a loaf pan or prepare muffin tins with oil/spray/butter or paper.

Bake in oven, loaf usually take 30-60 minutes depending on loaf pan size, muffins take about 25 minutes.
