banana bread cameroon


These days, I’m not even bothered when my bananas get all ripe and mushy. That gives me the perfect excuse to make the most delicious banana bread. There shall be no more waste in the land. The mushier the bananas, the bananier the bread.

I should write my own dictionary. Maybe.

But seriously guys, this bread or should I say cake is the very definition of perfect. The taste hits all the right places in the mouth. A slice of this will send you straight to banana heaven where you will be singing banallujah. Ehen!
So last night when I found some overripe bananas lying in my fruit basket, I rejoiced because… banana bread to the rescue! The bananas were without form and void and dark spots started to form on their skin. And I said, “Let there be banana bread.”

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 40 mins

You’ll need:
1 and a half cups flour
3 overripe bananas
Half teaspoon baking soda
Half teaspoon baking powder
A third cup sugar
Half teaspoon of salt
Eight levelled tablespoons butter (or magarine)
I teaspoon cinnamon powder
A few vanilla extract drops (optional)
2 large eggs
Half cup whole liquid milk
Grease a loaf pan with vegetable oil and set aside. You could line the bottom with parchment paper like I did.
Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit (about 200 Degrees Celsius).

Peel your bananas and put in a blender with milk. Blend together and set aside.
Now measure out your butter/magarine and put in a mixing bowl.
Dump in your sugar. I used brown sugar for no reason other than that I am out of white sugar. Me, out of white sugar? This is frightening!
Cream those two together until they become husband and wifey. One and indivisible.
Crack in your two eggs.
Mix baby, mix!
Now add  a few drops of vanilla extract if using.
Mix that together. Blend together banana and milk and add in. You could also mash the bananas with a fork in a bowl if you wish. In that case, mash the bananas, mix with the milk and add to the other wet ingredients.
Throw in all the remaining dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
Mix all of that goodness together.

Pout into your prepared loaf pan. Be sure to level the top.

Put in preheated oven. I have no idea why I will be showing you a picture that is as dark as hell. I have problems.

Let that bake for about 20 – 30 minutes or until an inserted tooth pick comes out clean. While it bakes, revel in the smell that will fill your house. I live for such smells! I wish they coud make a designer perfume that smells like freshly baked banana bread. I will buy ii if it is under $5. Ha!

That my friends, is how you make the most delicious banana bread. If you try this out, be kind and leave me a comment below.

Until we meet again on one of such foodie adventures, have a great time!
