Banana Bread

I had 4 really ripe bananas which i needed to finish off and that was enough motivation to try the banana bread . This is the first loaf that i did try to bake. Turned out fine :).

Banana Bread






Ingredients

Ripe Bananas - 4, mashed well.
Flour - 1 + 3/4 cup
Granulated Sugar - 1 cup
Butter at room temperature- 120gm
Cinnamon - 1/2 Tspn
Baking soda - 1 tspn
Baking powder - 1 Tspn
Salt - 1 Tspn
Eggs -2
vanilla Extract - 1 tspn
Milk - 2 Tbspn



Method

Preheat the oven to 175 deg C for 10 minutes.Prepare a 9*5 loaf pan for baking.I usually use a non-stick cooking spray to spray the pan, line it with parchment paper and spray again with non-stick cooking spray.

Meanwhile prepare the cake mix as below.

Cream the butter and sugar and whisk till you get a smooth mix. Break in the eggs one by one, add mashed bananas and vanilla extract. Mix till all of them combine well.Now add in the flour,baking soda,baking powder, cinnamon,salt and milk. Mix well till all of the ingredients come together.

Pour the cake mix into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes to one hour at 175 deg C. At the 50th minute, insert a tooth-pick into the center of the loaf and if it comes out clean , its done, else bake for 10 more minutes.

Once the cake is done, cool it for 20 - 30 minutes, before you slice them. Don't be impatient, if you try
to slice them when its hot, it will crumble. I cooled it for 30 minutes, and put it in the fridge over-night.It sliced like a charm the next day.

Note: I used 165 deg C for 1 hour as my oven heats up quite quickly, so adjust your oven temperature accordingly.
