Banana bread (Eggless and Sugarless)

This is one of the simplest bread (maybe you can call it as a cake too ) you can make. Like many of you, Banana bread was my first choice when I saw overripe bananas in my kitchen. I have tried to make this bread in a healthy version. I prefer wheat flour to all purpose flour. The highlight is its Eggless, Sugarless and uses very little oil. I have used honey instead of sugar. There is no need of sugar because of the sweetness of the overripe bananas.The bread came out very good and was very soft.





Ingredients:

Dry:
1 cup Wheat flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Salt

Wet:

2 overripe Bananas
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Yogurt 
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tbsp Oil

1 tbsp each Almonds and Raisins


Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly spray the oil on all the sides of a baking pan.

Mash the bananas with a spoon so that you will get a smooth paste. Add the wet ingredients to this- honey, yogurt, oil, vanilla essence. Mix well.

Add the dry ingredients to a bowl - Wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Mix well. Now slowly add the wet ingredients to this and constantly mix the flour. Add the nuts and raisins.Mix everything well so as to get a smooth paste, it shouldnt be very runny consistency.

Pour this to the pan and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes. Keep an eye on the oven after 25-30 minutes itself. Insert a knife to see if it comes out clean. Serve warm.

Hi, thank you for this wonderful recipe. However I tried this bread strictly following the recipe but my bread did not rise at all and it was squishy. Could you please point out reason for this?
Thanks Ritu

Sobha Shyam said...

Hi Ritu,

Thanks for trying out the recipe. There can be few reasons why the bread did not rise...
1. The baking powder and soda should be fresh.Check the expiry date.
2. The oven should be preheated. Check if the baking temperature is exact.
3. Bake immediately once the batter is ready. Do not keep it for long outside.
4. Hope the batter is not too watery.

I have baked this so many times and never failed. Maybe its some minor reason Ritu..Hope u will try it out again and let me know the feedback..!!

Regards,
Sobha

Ritu said...

Thanks Shoba, I really want to make this bread for my 2 years old :) I have double checked everything but everything was fine temperature, baking powder expiry date :(
But I will try again :) One question, do I have to beat the mixture vigorously or just mix it?
thanks for the wonderful recipes.

Sobha Shyam said...

Hi Ritu,

You should mix well so that dry and wet ingredients are combined well.

You can make a puree of overripe bananas in mixie (without water) , add other wet ingredients except oil and blend it well. Then add oil and mix. Finally add the dry ingredients and combine everything well. Your batter should be fine then.

Hope u will try it out for ur baby. Do let me know the results :)
