Banana Bread (without egg)

Recipe credit - Femina Magazine, 1997


1 cup ( 100 g ) all purpose flour ( maida )
3 well ripe bananas (small), mashed
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon milk
50 g sugar
1 teaspoon honey (optional)
2 tablespoon (30 g) butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon extra butter ( for greasing baking pan )
1 tablespoon extra flour dusting


Mash bananas and keep aside.

Grease baking dish with 2 teaspoon butter and dust with 1 tablespoon flour ( sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of flour inside a cake pan and shake to coat all greased surface. Turn pan upside down to tap out the excess flour ) or line a grease proof paper.

Pre heat oven at 200 * C or 400 * F (moderately hot).

Sieve flour, baking powder and salt.

Beat butter and sugar until light and creamy.

Add mashed bananas and mix well.

Add milk, honey (optional) and vanilla essence. Gently fold sieved flour mixture. Stir slowly till well blended. This cake mixture will be thick in consistency.

Transfer this cake mixture to a greased baking pan (or paper lined ). Spread evenly with a spatula and bake at 200 * C or 400 * F for 25 to 30 minutes or till golden brown / leaves from the sides of the pan or till a sewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Run a knife round inside of the pan to loosen the cake, and then invert the pan. Cut into desired shape and sizes.
