The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Banana Bread is:
This s**t is bananas
Do you remember that song? It was my aunties ringtone for so long, and it's in my head ever since.
I was supposed to do so much today, but for some reason, my head was just not in the game. So I decided to get my mind off work for a second and bake a fantastic banana bread.
Baking really turned into my de-stress therapy. And would be better to make than banana bread, right?
So let's get baking. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Use an electric mixer and cream your butter until you get a smooth, creamy texture. Add your sugar and mix it together for 2-3 minutes. Time to add the eggs one at a time. Use a fork and smash your bananas until you get banana mash and add that to the mixture. Add your dry ingredients and mix again for 2 minutes. Grease your loaf pan and pour your dough into the pan. Let it back for 55-65 minutes. Check with a toothpick if its done and take it out of the oven.
Totally burned myself in the process, but what's knew. Can you remember when you were little how your mom tried to comfort you when you hurt yourself and told you 'next time you know better'? Well, my mom stopped saying that when she realized, she gave birth to the clumsiest girl alive. I just can't help it I'm just fascinated with touching things... ok that sounds completely wrong, but I totally don't mean it that way
So back to the banana bread shall we? So after letting it cool down for 10 minutes turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
The best thing about this banana bread recipe its super easy to make and the bread stays really moist and doesn't turn into this dry cake.
pre-heat your oven to 180°C
add your butter to a bowl and mix it until you get a smooth and creamy texture
add the sugar and mix until evenly combined (2-3 minutes)
add one egg at a time (fully incorporate in between)
take a fork and smash your bananas, so you get a banana mash and add that to your bowl (make sure that there are not too many lumps remaining)
mix your dry ingredients and add it to your wet mixture
grease your loaf pan and pour your dough into the pan
back for 55-65 minutes (test with toothpick)
let it cool down for 10-15 minutes before turning it out and let it cool completely
