I love it when people send requests ! Please mail me if there is something you would like to VIRTUALLY eat (please note..VIRTUAL – for people like Davita!)
Heeral asked me for a Banana Bread recipe. I usually use a recipe that calls for egg replacer, but since she lives out in the bush I realised that it would be impractical! This recipe is so easy that it can be done in ten minutes flat, with your eyes closed 😉
This is my first proper eggless banana bread recipe! Hope it turns out okay. I couldn’t taste it because today we begin our 90 day Rajipo Challenge for Swamibapa’s health and happiness upon us, and part of it is to fast for 90 days ( Eeek!) I guess from now on you will be seeing a change in my menu!
2 ripe bananas
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup digestive bran
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 tbsp oil
2 tbsp plain yoghurt
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup flaked almonds*
Mash the bananas, and combine with the liquid ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Sift the dry ingredients together (except the almonds), in a separate bowl.
Combine the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and mix gently.
Pour into a loaf tin and sprinkle the almonds generously over the top!
Bake at 180 for 15-20 minutes.
Insert a skewer into the cake after 15 minutes. If it does not come out clean, let it bake for another 5 minutes.
