Banana Bread - Nuts/Chocolate Optional
makes 1 loaf
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. vanilla sugar (I put my leftover vanilla pods in a bowl of sugar)
3 mashed black bananas
1/2 c. sour cream (and yes, you can use fat free - I do!)
1/4 c. veg oil
(1/2 cup semi sweet chips and/or 1/4 c. chopped walnuts if you want to incorporate something different)
*You don't need to dirty many things - 1 bowl, 1 whisk, measuring cups that's it*
In a large bowl, mash the 3 bananas with a fork, add in the eggs, oil, sour cream and sugar; mix thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients and stir to combine - don't over mix.
pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 325 for an hour and 15 minutes. Do the toothpick test (if it comes out cleanly after being inserted into the centre its good to go!)
Let cool a few minutes and turn out onto a cooling rack.
I don't hesitate to slather on some butter and nor should you!
