Decorating Tips:
Before baking, consider topping the bread with a pinch of raw sugar for a delicious crunch. A drizzle of melted chocolate or a dusting of powdered sugar after baking can add an elegant touch. Serve each slice with a little butter or a dollop of whipped cream for added decadence. Ingredients:

  • Bananas – 3
  • Egg – 1
  • Flour – 1 and 3/4 cups
  • Butter – 1/3 cup, melted
  • Nuts – 1 cup, chopped (or any favorite nut)
  • Sugar – 1/2 cup (adjust to taste, sweetener can be substituted)

  2. Add the melted butter, egg, sugar and salt to the mashed bananas and mix well.
  3. Add the chopped nuts.
  4. Sift in the flour and baking soda and mix until well combined, being careful not to overmix.
  5. Butter a cake mold and transfer the dough into it.
  6. Optionally, make a lengthwise cut in the top of the dough and sprinkle with chocolate chips and other nuts.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and bake for approximately 45 to 60 minutes. Check the cooking with a wooden skewer which should come out clean.
  8. After baking, remove the bread from the oven and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
