Eggless Butterless Banana Bread is an easy ,simple and one bowl recipe to make without any fancy gadgets. This recipe is a no- fail recipe that comes out perfect every time!
This recipe needs only handful of basic baking ingredients available in pantry plus ripe bananas. Ripe Bananas gives extra moist and slight tender crumbs,which is delicious. Make sure banana should be over ripe with black spots and not yellow firm ones. Yellow ones are perfect for pudding and smoothies ,but not for Banana bread.
I always make some variations when baking Banana bread. In this recipe,I added some walnut and cashews to give some nutty crunchy taste. Sometimes I make plain banana bread with the basic banana recipe and also add some dried fruits or some choco chips. Do feel free to experiment in adding nuts or dried fruits.
You can see a smooth finish top in the Plain Banana bread. Yes,add -ins gives slight crack top but the taste remains same. Always ,I have to bake two batches when baking banana bread. One with mixed nuts and one plain banana bread . Two varieties of banana bread is a must in my family and it will last only a day or two in my house. There is no perfect time to eat this bread . I prefer to eat as a morning breakfast with a cup of coffee and that’s it my breakfast is done. My Hubby and son eat whenever they want and no precise time is needed for them to gorge????.
