Banana Bread

Banana Bread is something that I make every time when I have over ripe Banana's. This recipe was passed on  by my Akka (Fathers sister) & has turned out perfect every time I've made it. The original recipe was a combination of whole wheat flour and maida (flour). But recently, I decided to try to make it healthy and used whole wheat flour only & it turned out well.


1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup ripe mashed bananas (approx 3 medium)
1/4 cup margarine, room temperature
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup roasted, crushed walnuts

How it's made:

Pre-heat oven to 350deg F. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except raisin & walnuts. Beat at medium speed for 2-3 mins. Fold in raisins. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan or a pan lined with wax paper. ( Greasing pan is not required if you decide to use wax paper).

Top with walnuts. Bake for 45-50 mins or until toothpick/skewer/knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool completely for an hour & store in airtight container.

Note: For glass pan, set oven temperature to 350 deg. For metal pan, 325 deg.
