- 125 g soft butter.
- 120 g sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla sugar
- 2 eggs
- 4 ripe bananas (~400 g when peeled)
- 300 g AP flour
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- ~ 10 g baking powder (slightly more than half of a whole 16g packet)
- a pinch of salt
- 60 g chocolate
- Mash peeled bananas into a puree.
- Beat butter with sugar and vanilla sugar until fluffy. Mix in both eggs one by one. Beat until properly incorporated.
- Stir in the mashed bananas
- Combine the dry ingredients, mix until homogeneous
- Using a spatula fold the dry mixture into the butter/Banana/egg mixture.
- Now add chopped chocolate, caramelized walnuts,…
- Butter and dust your pan with flour. Pour batter into pan. (I used a 25cm loaf pan and oil instead of butter, because it’s easier to spread)
- Bake in preheated oven (170°C) for 70-80 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Leave in pan for 10 min, then put the banana bread on a cooling rack.
- and enjoy.
- 70 g walnuts (I chopped them, but You can leave them whole)
- 30 g sugar (might need more or less, I eyeballed it)
- Roast the walnuts in a pan until they start to smell nice. Take them out of the pan
- Pour sugar into pan. Melt sugar on high heat until it’s golden brown. (You can add some water before melting the sugar to help it distribute more evenly)
- Put walnuts back into pan. Mix until they are evenly coated with the melted sugar.
- Spread them onto some parchment paper and put them into the fridge until they are solid.
- Break them into little pieces and put those into banana bread.
- 1/2 Banana cut into semi-circles
- 30 g sugar
Melt sugar, put bananas in,… (Same as for walnuts)
The bananas didn’t turn out crispy, but turned into something liken a fudge. Maybe frying them before putting them into the molten sugar could fix that.
With the caramelized walnuts and bananas use about 100g of sugar for the batter. add the “banana-fudge” in between two layers of batter. You can kind of see the banana-fudge layer in the middle of the bread.
