Eggless Banana Bread

Baking is therapeutic & a major stress buster for me. And baking breads – regular, sweet, savory – gives me a different high. The smell of the bread right out of the oven is the BEST THING EVER!!!!

I had been reading/watching recipes of the Banana Bread for a while now & was really eager to try it. The 1st one I baked was with eggs but my family doesn’t eat eggs & my search for an eggless banana bread began. After going through many youtube videos & blogs I came across this recipe on Jeyashri’s Kitchen. It looked extremely simple & I decided to try it. Over ripped banana was the most difficult ingredient to source for me, as my family would consume them in the best form. I had to hide a few to make them over-soft, over-rip. But at the end of it, it was all worth it. Sharing the recipe of my Eggless Banana Bread with Chocochips & Almonds.

Ingredients

  • Whole Wheat Flour – 3/4th Cup
  • Maida/All Purpose Flour – ½ Cup
  • Ripe Banana – 2
  • Sugar – 3/4th Cup (I used plain white sugar)
  • Yogurt/Curd – 2 Tbsp
  • Milk – 1/4th Cup
  • Oil – 4 Tbsp
  • Salt – 1/4th Tsp
  • Vanilla Essence – 1 Tsp
  • Baking Soda – 1 Tsp
  • Chocochip – As per choice
  • Chopped Almond – As per choice

Procedure

  • Mash the banana’s using a whisk or hands
  • Add sugar, milk, curd, vanilla essence, oil, salt to the mashed bananas & mix well
  • Sift the flour & baking soda together
  • Mix the flour-baking soda mixture slowly into the banana mash. Just a simple mix will be enough.
  • Ensure there is no dry flour left
  • Add chocochips, chopped almonds & gently mix again
  • Grease the loaf pan with butter & pour the mixture into it. I used a 9X7 inch loaf pan
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius & bake the bread for 40-45 mins
  • Insert a knife/skewer to check for wet batter

Cut into slices once cooled down. Serve it with tea/coffee or a scoop of ice-cream 🙂
