Not another Banana Bread

I woke up on a Saturday morning and realized that I didn’t have much to make breakfast with. I remembered the bananas and avocado that I had set aside to ripen. The bananas were perfectly ripe to cook with. The skin had started to go brown.  So I thought, hey! I could make some banana bread. I know everyone has the best banana bread recipe, we’ve seen them all since the beginning of lock-down. I was able to find a recipe that didn’t require butter and instead of cinnamon I used a bit of nutmeg.

The recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 overripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg 

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, cream together the eggs and sugar. Stir in the mashed bananas, vanilla, oil and nutmeg. Stir in the flour mixture, a third at a time, until just combined.
  2. Pour the batter into a 22cm x 12cm loaf pan. Bake for about 1 hour, but check on the bread at about 40mins to avoid burning.  Ovens may differ.

The bread turned out really well, I thought my life would be more complicated because I didn't have butter, but it paired beautifully with some lemon curd that I made about a week ago.
