Baker Street Banana Bread

This bread has the tradition of yesterday plus the edge of tomorrow, Its a kitchen solid !

To make one big cake use a loaf pan. Id rather split this recipe in two, so I use 2 med size baking papers that you can find at any speciality store . That way I can keep one and gift one.

Preheat oven to 180c/350f

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar or granulated honey or half of each
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 4-5 mashed bananas
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts(optional)
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (optional)

Mix flour,salt,and baking soda. 

Add sugar, oil, and eggs.

Beat well until just incorporated. 

Add  bananas mashing them with your hands as you add them to the bowl.  

Beat until incorporated.

Add nuts and chocolate chips  if desired.

Pour into a greased loaf pan or fill baking papers almost to the top and bake until golden brown.

For bread –start testing for doneness after 55 minutes. Sometimes it takes  just over an hour.

For the med size option start testing at 30-35 min. 

*Test for doneness with toothpick. When wooden skewer comes out clean your in business !

Let cool before removing from pan.

After this taste test, you’ll be a celebrity !

I've had the great good fortune of living abroad for more than a decade. The traditions, comfort and memories of home are things I cherish and carry with me on my travels. What I wasn't expecting was that other cultures and flavors would seep into my own traditions and favorites and influence a new batch of classics. Heres to evolving traditions and new memories!
