Banana Bread Anyone?

This is a recipe I tried out and worked well with me especially because the ingredients are easily available in the house. What you get is a nice moist cake that keeps for up to 1 week in an airtight container

Ingredients:

  • 250g Self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 85g Butter/Margarine
  • 150g Sugar
  • 3 Ripe bananas
  • 100ml Plain yoghurt
  • 2 eggs

Procedure:

  1. With all the ingredients gathered, and ready to go, preheat the oven to 180C
  2. While the oven is heating up, sift the flour and baking powder together into a mixing bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Next add the sugar and stir into the flour.
  4. Mash the bananas with a fork until soft then add to the flour with the yoghurt and eggs.
  5. Beat the mixture with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  6. Spoon the mixture into a a waiting greased and lined loaf tin or a suitable cake pan.
  7. If using a deep loaf pan, bake the cake for about 1 hour or until a small knife inserted  comes out clean.
  8. Leave to cool in the tin for about 5 minutes then turn out on to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.

    Hello Chef Raphael, can I use canola oil in place of margarine or butter? If yes, how much of it?
