Quick Banana Bread

Breakfast? Dessert? Banana bread is always very popular! I tried Bob the chef’s recipe and it was a pleasant surprise because of the simplicity of it!

If you open my freezer, you’ll notice that I have many frozen black bananas. I use them for banana breads and also to replace eggs in dessert recipes. In a gesture of reducing food waste, I freeze bananas that have matured too long. I could use them immediately in the recipes, but if I run out of time, I freeze them for later.

  • 60 ml (¼ cup) granulated sugar

  • 125 ml (½ cup) canola or vegetable oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ° F.

  2. In a bowl, mash bananas with oil, sugar and vanilla.

  3. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and optional ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until a homogeneous mixture is obtained (don’t be surprised that the mixture is thicker than a cake mix).

  4. Pour into a lightly oiled bread pan and cook about 50 minutes / an hour (check the cooking with a toothpick, if it comes out clean, the bread is cooked).

  5. Let cool, unmold, slice and serve.
