I love to have a piece of cake when ever I have a coffee or tea. Banana bread is my favourite. Whenyou bake a banana bread or a cake the house smells like a bakery and even the next door neighbour will get the smell.
This cake is rich , soft and moist too. you canm leave the bread 3-4 days out in room temperature (I dont think you will keep that long 🙂 ) or about a week in fridge or you can freeze them for future use. I recommend you to slice the cake and leave individual pieces in fridge for easy thawing.
This recipe is for a large banana cake. You can divide the ingredients by two to a smaller loaf.

Add sugar and butter in to a mixing bowl and whisk well.
After add the eggs one by one and whisk well.
Add the bananas while whisking on a low speed.
Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk on a low speed first and then whisk on a high speed for one minute.
Add the prepared mix in to a loaf pan and bake on 180 c about 45 minutes to one hour or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.( The baking tray I used is 12 inch x 4 inch loaf pan) Leave the bread in the loaf pan for 5 minutes. After take out from the tray and leave on a wire rack to cool completely.
This is how it looks when taken out from the tray.
It is like a sponge. Once press it comes back to the shape.
This is how it looks when sliced.

Though banana bread can be done in different ways , one of the best ways is with condensed milk. To get the colour and add some sweetness I added molasses in it. But you can totally omit molasses from this recipe too.
This bread is not very sugary as I didn’t add much sweetness to this bread. One way this bread is healthy with less oil and sugar. The other thing is you can serve this with a cup of coffee with extra butter or jam if you wish.
Where ever I go I order banana bread with my coffee. I always noticed that there is a huge difference from cafe to cafe. Don’t try from commercial type places as they put preservatives to keep longer.
I have so many different versions of banana bread types. Please browse in my channel or under the cake section if you like banana bread.
