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
First cut up 4 bananas into pieces and shred them in a food processor. Be careful not to overmix!
Sprinkle it with baking soda and start sifting the flour in the bowl.
