Banana Bread - New EDC page 142
« on: September 18, 2014, 08:34:01 am »
When my daughter was staying with us at Christmas, she made this cake a couple of times.  I thought it was the nicest banana bread I've eaten, so today needing to use up 4 very ripe bananas, I remembered this recipe.

I did something a little different this time, I made up a topping where I put half inside the cake (poured half the batter in the tin, sprinkled with half the topping, then poured in the remaininder of the batter and finished off with the other half of the topping before baking.  So, so nice.  Will include that in case anyone else would like to try it.  :)

Topping
30g brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
50g  chopped walnuts or pecans - use a knife, more control (today used walnuts, but have used pecans before)
50g chocolate chips (optional - didn't use)

Combine sugar and cinnamon with your fingertips in a med bowl, breaking up any lumps of sugar.
Add nuts (and choc chips if using).  Stir through with your fingers until well combined.

JulieO what a lovely idea. I usually make Tenina's Aunt Debbie's Banana Bread so will give this a try next time.

Looks amazing - artisan bakery worthy. I was craving some banana bread/ cake today but target didn't have any reduced price over ripe bananas. Will save for next time.

Thanks for sharing.

Having some manky bananas to use up decided to make this.I misjudged the size of my loaf tin and it overflowed. :-))
A very easy and nice recipe,a little sweet so would reduce the sugar next time and use a more appropriate sized tin.

As long as it tasted good Denise, that's the main thing.  The manky bits would be nice with hot custard.

It is so hard to decide which banana cake or bread to make when you have scungy bananas. There are so many nice ones available to us now.
