Tasty. ūüôā

Better photos today because Soef brought her camera! You’ll have to excuse the general bad quality of the photos taken because I use my camera phone and my house has generally poor lighting. Lol.¬†

Soefie came over to bake Apple Pie and since there was a lot of buffer time I decided to make more of that deee-licious Kona Inn Banana Bread that I tried previously.

I added walnuts this time, but the bread didn’t turn out quite as moist and flavourful as the last time. Why?

CHECK YOUR BANANAS! Do not use Del Monte!!!! Use those really small, yellow ones when they’re turning all scary and black. They’re really really soft and PERFECT for baking.¬†

The bread still tasted yummy but I’m definitely sticking to the small bananas next time. And yes there will always be a next time because this is really¬†gooood¬†bread.

Kona Inn Banana Bread

 

Soft, rich, yellow banana bread!

Soft, rich, yellow banana bread!

 

This is a REALLY GOOD banana bread recipe. Although I’ve not tried any others I’m quite content to keep this as my favourite. BUT the type of bananas you use really affects the outcome, a lot!¬†

Thankfully living here in good ol’ tropical Singapore gives us access to loads of sweet, yummy tropical bananas. Del Monte doesn’t work for this. I tried it out the 2nd time I baked this and my bread turned out much drier than the first time.¬†

I used really mushy, soft, sweet mini bananas that were overripe for this one, and it turned out beautifully. Very moist, very flavourful, very very yellow and just oh-so-tasty.

adapted from Last Crumb

Yields: Two Loaves, Prep Time: 20 minutes, Baking Time: 45-60 minutes (I don’t know what kind of loaf pan this is, but I only did half¬†the recipe as stated below and I stupidly filled one of my disposable tins all the way to the brim and ended up with a pulsing bread monster in my oven:¬†

Scary overflowing monster bread!

So if you’re using these disposable loaf pans, HALF THE FOLLOWING MEASUREMENTS WILL ACTUALLY GIVE YOU TWO GOOD PANFULS OF BREAD.)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup softened un-salted butter
  • 6 ripe bananas, mashed (approximately 3 cups)
  • 4 eggs, well-beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups cake flower
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350¬įF.
  2. With an electric beater, cream together sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add bananas and eggs, beating until well mixed.
  3. Sift together dry ingredients three times. Blend with banana mixture, but do not over mix.
  4. Pour into (2) lightly greased loaf pans. Bake for 45 minutes to one hour, until firm in the centers and the edges begin to separate from pans.
  5. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes before removing from pans.
This too is a fairly easy recipe, and it produces such yummy results too!

Would I bake this again?¬†Of course! ūüėĬ†
