I didn’t think I would need another recipe of Banana bread until I tasted my cousin’s recipe. He enjoys baking with his kids and on our beach day, he got this super moist loaf of banana bread. It was the best banana bread I ever had and this One Bowl Banana Nut Bread has now become my go-to banana bread recipe. It’s moist but not dense, crumbly but not dry, the texture and sweetness are spot on too.
The original recipe has been sourced from Simply Recipes.
EASY ONE BOWL BANANA NUT BREAD
Making this banana bread is easy and quick. What makes this recipe super cool is that it’s a one-bowl bread recipe. You don’t even need to mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Just mash the banana using a fork and keep adding everything to the same bowl. I didn’t even bother to whisk. I used the same fork to mix everything into a batter. Pour the whole thing in a regular size loaf pan and it came out baked to perfection.
HOW TO MAKE THIS EGGLESS?
Egg adds the richness and softness to the cake. It makes it fluffy. If you want to bake this Banana bread eggless just use any of the following instead of the egg:
2 tablespoon yogurt/buttermilk
1/4 cup apple sauce
1- tablespoon ground flaxseeds/chia with 3 tablespoons water. Let it sit for sometime for the water to fully absorb the seeds.
Variation of Banana Bread
I have made banana cakes in the past with cocoa powder and Nutella but I definitely love this version with a ton load of nuts. It gives a crunch and makes a perfect teatime snack too. You could definitely add chocolate chips too.
Last weekend, we went for camping (blog post coming soon!) and I made this same bread again without the nuts. Everybody loved it! It was a perfect munch for the road and made a great breakfast option too.
- 4 overripe bananas
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup assorted nuts, I used walnuts and almonds
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- Grease a loaf pan with butter and dust some flour on it.
- Take a mixing bowl and drop the peeled bananas into the bowl. Using a fork, mash the bananas. Keep adding rest of the ingredients (except the nuts) to the bowl and mix it with the fork or a wooden spoon until they’re incorporated into a batter.
- Finally, mix the assorted nuts.
- Pour the batter into the greased pan and place it in the middle rack of the hot oven. Bake for 50 minutes. Check by inserting a chopstick or a knife. If it comes out clean, take the pan out of the oven. If not, continue baking and check again after 5 minutes.
- Once it’s done, let the bread cool in the pan for a while. Then, release the sides using a serrated knife. The bread should come out easy.
