Delicious and simple recipe ideas with ripe bananas

Use the ripe bananas well

banana bread

The brown bananas are perfect for making a sweet bread. Keep them in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them. The darker and “worse” the bananas, the more flavor they will add to the bread.

The ingredients needed:

  • 1/2 tea cup butter
  • 1 teacup of white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 bananas
  • 1/4 teacup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tea cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tea cup of ground nuts or chocolate chips as desired

The preparation:

Preheat the oven to 180 °.

Line a rectangular baking pan with enough parchment paper.

Let the butter melt and mix it together with the sugar. Then add the eggs and mix until the mixture is homogeneous. The milk and vanilla are also added and only then the peeled bananas. Depending on your preferences, you can pass the bananas or just lightly mash them. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the mixture and prepare the dough. Sprinkle nuts and chocolate sprinkles on top and stir again. Pour the batter into the baking sheet and bake for about 55 to 65 minutes. The baking time depends heavily on the water, sugar and banana content. Therefore, watch the baking process after the 50th minute.

After you take the bread out of the oven, let it cool down for 10 minutes, then you can take it out of the baking sheet more easily. Let cool in the tray for another 10 minutes before you cut the bread. Store the banana bread covered at room temperature for a few days or frozen in foil for up to 3 months.
