Cafe Style Best Ever Banana Bread for December Sweet Punch

Hello Friends,


Another wonderful Sweet Punch posting day. This month Ria gave us a free reign to bake anything we would like to, which as usual confused me. But, I had this recipe bookmarked for a while and I had bananas ready to go bad, so this is what I made for this month.


The bread was as mentioned by Tia, a cafe style and that too a melt in the mouth kind. If you like banana bread, this is the recipe you can count on. I guess this is the best banana bread I have baked so far. Take my word for it.



Cafe Style Best Ever Banana Bread


Recipe Source: Buttercream Barbie
Ingredients
Wet
Banana - 3 large ones (about 1 to 1.5 cups mashed banana puree or little chunky as you like)
Eggs - 2 beaten
Buttermilk - 1/3 cup
Oil - 1/2 cup (I used Canola Oil)
Dry
All Purpose Flour - 1 3/4 cups, sifted
Sugar - 1 - 1.5 cups (I added 1.5 and felt that I could have reduced a bit)
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Nuts
Walnuts - 1/2 cup, chopped to bits
Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease a load pan.
  • Whisk together all wet ingredients  till nicely blended.
  • Sift together all dry ingredients.
  • Now, add dry ingredients to wet slowly and mix till all come together and there are no lumps.
  • Add walnuts (you can also add 1/ cup of chocolate chips here, if you want to) and mix them in the batter.
  • Pour the batter in the greased load pan and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. Keep checking after an hour to make sure you don't over bake.
  • Let it cool on rack completely before you cut them into desired sized slices.
  • The ingredients mentioned above made one loaf for me.

Serving
Serve it just as it is. I have tried both warm and cold and it tastes alike, simple delicious.


That's all for now. Take care till next post.
