  • Milk – 1/2 cup
  • Vegetable/ corn / canola/ olive  oil – 1/2 cup
  • Over riped bananas – 2 large

  • Baking soda – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt – 1/4 tsp
  • Walnuts/ pecans chopped – 1/2 cup

Method

  • Sieve together all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mom would always sieve 3 times.
  • Mash the bananas in a bowl and keep aside.
  • Preheat oven at 180 degree centigrade or 350 degree Fahrenheit.
  • Liquidize eggs and sugar along with vanilla essence with the help of a whisk in a large bowl. Eggs should be at room temperature.
  • Add bananas and oil and  mix in the same bowl.
  • Now add half of the dry ingredients and milk and fold in. Now add the other half and fold in again.
  • Add  walnut or pecans and mix slowly.
  • Grease a bread tin with butter and dust with all purpose flour so that the bread comes off easily once baked.
  • Pour the batter into the bread tin.
  • Place in the oven (middle rack) and bake for about 60 to 75 minutes depending on the oven until a tooth pick comes out clean.
  • After about 30 minutes of baking, cover the top of the tin with aluminum foil so that the bread doesn’t brown too much on top.
  • Remove from oven and place it on a wire rack and allow to cool before cutting.
