Funny - I made this quite a while ago, but then forgot to post about it. Kevin just posted about a banana bread and reminded me that hey, I should too. This is a no frills banana bread - very tasty though. My aunt's dog Stumpan - remember her? - used to love it.
Anyway. Great bread, lousy picture. It keeps well in a jar for a few days, as it's very moist.
from Thane Prince
3-4 mashed bananas
3 beaten eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
200 ml vegetable oil
140 g wholemeal flour
140 g plain flour
2 level tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
100 g light muscovado sugar
50 g chopped shelled pecans or walnuts
Preheat the oven to 160°C and lightly oil a loaf tin. Mix the bananas with eggs, vanilla extract and oil.
In another bowl, mix the flours with baking powder, salt and muscovado. Fold into the banana mixture, and add the nuts.
Pour into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 50-60 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before removing it from the tin.
