WN28 Banana Bread

Sophia made a pistachio cake a couple of weeks, and it was really good. I’d forgot baking was a thing, so I’ve been trying my hand.

Looking to make something heartier, I picked up some wholemeal spelt flour. So far I’ve made a mixed-grain soda bread, which was ok, and banana bread with it. The banana bread came out great! I wanted something a little less sweet than the pistachio cake, or what the recipes I was seeing. The proportions below are half intentional and half what we had in the pantry.

Next on the list is muffins.

Banana Bread

  • 100g dark muscovado sugar
  • 55g butter
  • 4 medium bananas, mashed (I used organic, they’re a more consistent size)
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 70g broken walnuts
  • 60ml Greek yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Melt the butter, and mix in the sugar until it becomes a paste. Then add the eggs and yoghurt, salt, cinnamon, vanilla extract and bicarb.

Then, mix in the flour with a spoon and stir gently. When the flour looks like the lightest dusting fold in the nuts and give it one last stir. Transfer to a greased loaf tin.

Bake at 180C for and hour and twenty. Enjoy!
