When I saw this bread and read the ingredients, I know I will like this bread. Since I have all the ingredients, I went ahead and bake it. Lovely crumbs, moist and nutty all in one bread, simply delicious!
|After baking, see how tall it rose?|
208g all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda (I used 1 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp baking soda)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs (100g)
111g vegetable oil
3 large coarsely mashed very ripe bananas
2 tablespoons yogurt (I replaced with 2 tablespoons of caramel sauce)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
175g walnuts, toasted and chopped
Preheat oven to 350F/175°C (I bake mine at 160C). Butter 1 (9- by 5- by 3-inch) metal loaf pan, then dust with flour, knocking out excess.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into a bowl.
Beat together eggs and sugar in bowl of electric mixer at medium-high speed until very thick and pale and mixture forms a ribbon when beater is lifted, about 10 minutes. Reduce speed to low and add oil in a slow stream, mixing, then mix in bananas, yogurt, and vanilla. Remove bowl from mixer and fold in flour mixture and walnuts gently but thoroughly. I reserved some walnuts to sprinkle on top of the cake.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan, spreading evenly, and bake in middle of oven until golden brown and a wooden pick or skewer comes out clean, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. (I tented mine after baking for 20 minutes and remove tent during the last 10 minutes). Cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes, then turn out onto rack. Turn loaf right side up and cool completely.
