Banana Bread


Classic banana loaf, moist and comforting. Will not go wrong.

Proportions for 1 small tray

0.5 kg ripe bananas

180 g flour

2.5 teaspoon baking powder

50 g butter

150 g sugar (will not be very sweet)

2 eggs

1 teaspoon salt

50 g chopped walnuts

30 g candied orange zest


In a large bowl mash chopped bananas; leave some bigger pieces to give some ‘banana bite’ at the end. Stir in flour with baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl beat eggs with sugar and mix in melted butter. Gently pour the mixture into banana dough and fold in using a wooden spoon. Add walnuts and orange zest. Bake in 170 Celsius degrees for approximately an hour. I use butter and bread crumbles instead of baking paper. A wooden stick should come out clean from the cake. The bread is of this heavy ones: is wet and dense but bananas make it gentle in taste.
