Banana Bread Loaf

Banana Bread Loaf

Did you notice that it has been a while since I posted a recipe on my blog? Well, it is because I am supposed to be on vacation. Having said that I did not mean to take a break from my blog as I thought I have more opportunity to not just post my drafts but also make more new dishes. Time and again I get reminded that man proposes god disposes. Leave alone cooking, I have been so unwell that I have not been able to even eat. Last few days have been the worst days and hope no one has to endure such pain. Anyway, I had written this recipe a while ago but never got to post it. Finally, here it goes...

1 cup plain flour and whole wheat flour mixture (you could use just plain flour too)
1 ripe banana, mashed to puree
Less than ¼ cup sugar
¼ cup milk
2 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 pinch baking soda
4 teaspoons curd/yoghurt
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Then add the sugar

Add the banana puree, milk, melted butter, yoghurt and oil and fold the mixture until combined

Grease a loaf tin and pour the batter and bake for 20-25 minutes at 180degC.

Cool for good few minutes and cut into slices

To check if bread is done, insert a tooth pick in the centre and if it comes out clean, it is done. You could add even a spice like cinnamon or nutmeg to the batter.
