We just started enjoying the short cold and rainy season when sunny weather came back. Maybe the winter will still appear. In the meantime, I’d like to offer this Banana Bread (or, actually, a Banana Cake). It is very simple, and structurally reminds of a bread. Naturally, it is a sweet bread.
It is ideal to try a slice of this bread with a glass of warm milk (or a cup of tea), sitting near the window on a rainy day.
3 ripe bananas (mashed into a puree)
1 tsp vanilla essence
100 gr. sugar
100 gr. melted butter
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp quicklime soda
100 gr. pecans, raisins (dark or light) or a handful of chocolate chips (or all together)
Use a form for English cakes (approximately 25cm in diameter)
The bananas need to be very ripe (maybe even over-ripe, covered with small black dots). Mash them into a puree, and then “stir in” the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence. Mixing this again to get a uniform mash.
Then add the butter, sift in the flour and the baking soda, and again, mix all together to a uniform mash.
In the final stage, add raisins/pecans/chocolate chips and mix the mash to ensure equal distribution of all ingredients.
Spray the baking pan with some oil and pour in the mash. Bake it for 1 hour at 190C, then cool for about 20 minutes before taking off the baking form.
