3 mushy bananas means… It’s time for Banana Bread.
- I used whole wheat flour
- I added 150 grams of plain joghurt
- I added lots of walnuts (omega 3 for the win)
- I added nutmeg, kambuzi sauce, and vanilla sugar for taste
It’s in the oven, baking at a low heat.
This recipe inspired me to carry out another banana bread experiment. I found the recipe on this list of banana bread recipes.
I used some leftover hazelnut flour and some leftover coconut flour. Added some hazelnuts. And I used sesame oil instead of coconut oil.
And because I didn’t have any cocoa at home, I skipped the part about adding cocoa and chocolate chips to one part of the cake dough.
So it’s really a new recipe. A new creation.
For future reference:
So I tried to make this:
Banana Bread Recipe by Simply Recipes.
But unfortunately, I added a lot of variations. Such as nuts and dried apricots and cocoa. So I can’t really recommend the recipe or write a review. But despite the odds, the result is delicious.
For future reference
Just found another banana bread recipe to try out:
Black banana cake
To get rid of some ripe and mushy bananas*, I decided to bake some banana bread today.
What I usually do is mix up a basic cake butter and then add 2-3 bananas to the batter. Today has been one big experiment ‘cos I didn’t have some of the ingredients. And I still don’t have a proper measurement jar. But that’s no reason to stop this bucket chemist.
I’m still waiting to see what the results are like….
[update] Banana bread tastes great… not sweet, lots of natural banana aroma, beautiful and moist. Experiment was a huge success!
400 g flour
150 g sugar
1 packet of vanilla sugar (or some drops of vanilla essence)
2 teaspoons baking powder
80 ml oil
120 ml milk
Mix everything together starting with the sugar and oil.
Bake the whole thing very slowly at 150 degrees…
I added water instead of milk, some cocoa powder, and lots more baking powder (i’m a bucket chemist, i believe in chemical reaction).
*i hate eating ripe and mushy bananas. I’d rather throw them away. I used to feed my dogs the ripe bananas. But that was in Malawi where bananas are plentiful and cheaper.
