This recipe for eggless banana bread is easy and delicious.
Mashed bananas and vegetable oil are great substitutes for eggs and contribute to the soft, moist texture and great taste. This is a great bread to serve with tea or coffee.
Cooking Time: 45-50 minutes
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (maida)
- 1 cup brown sugar or regular white sugar
- 4 cups mashed banana (over-ripe bananas mashed in blender)
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1/4 cup toasted, chopped, unsalted walnuts or pecans (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In a large bowl, whisk oil and sugar using a whisk or a hand mixer. Add the mashed banana and stir in the flour a little at a time. Whisk for 2-3 minutes to make sure all the ingredients are mixed properly and there are no lumps. The banana bread batter should be thick and pourable.
- Grease a bread pan with vegetable oil, and pour in the banana bread batter.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes. Insert a knife in the center of the baked bread to make sure the batter’s cooked (knife should come clean).
- Cool for 5 minutes before removing the banana bread from the pan and cool on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes.
- Cut into thin slices and serve immediately or cool the bread to room temperature and wrap it in plastic wrap. Banana bread tastes even better the next day … if you can hold out that long.
It’s easier and takes less time to whisk the ingredients using an electrichand mixer.
A whisk works well too; just takes a little longer.
