Spiced banana bread


Serve it straight up, or for a fancier take on it, make some butterscotch sauce, and serve it over vanilla ice cream. Delicious.

Spiced banana bread

110 g all-purpose flour
100 g whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ginger, ground
1/2 tsp cardamom, ground
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
230 g sugar
120 ml canola oil (100 g)
3 large bananas, very ripe (340 g), mashed
2 tbsp buttermilk

Mix the dry ingredients together - flour, whole wheat four, cinnamon, salt, ginger, cardamom and baking soda.

Stir together the wet ingredients: eggs, sugar, oil, and then the bananas and buttermilk. Stir in the dry ingredients, and fold until combined.

Pour into a prepared pan (I just butter a springform pan most of the time) and bake at 170°C for about an hour. Check with a cake tester to make sure it's cooked through, and be prepared to cover it with foil if it looks in any danger of burning.
