The Ultimate Banana Bread

My favourite cake at the moment is the very easily made and subtle banana bread. This banana bread is perfect for dessert after brunch (spread with some nutella), a coffee break at noon and works flawlessly as roadtrip food (a fine taste to crumbs-on-my-carseat ratio). Back when I was working at the Balzac Coffee shop - the banana bread was a true bestseller during lunch time.
If you have bananas laying around your house, getting darker from minute to minute - break the cycle and start baking folks!
You do not have to run to the grocery store as your basics in the kitchen will be more than enough. You'll need....
  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

The procedure

First cut up 4 bananas into pieces and shred them in a food processor. Be careful not to overmix!

You quickly need to work with these before the bananas turn dark - so working with a wooden spoon mix them with butter, a beaten egg, salt, sugar and vanilla.
Sprinkle it with baking soda and start sifting the flour in the bowl.

Generously butter the cake form, pour the mixture in and bake at 325°F(160°C) for 50-60 minutes.

If you are not sure if the cake is done, test it by inserting a wooden stick in the middle - if it comes out clean and bread has this amazing crack in the middle (love this!) take it out and let it cool on a rack. Be patient, it's worth waiting! I love that this cake only takes a couple of minutes to prepare but tastes so rich in flavour! It's one of my favorites!
