Midnight shenanigans.....making a Banana Loaf. Some of my earliest memories involve helping my mum bake. We had no fancy oven. Just a big round aluminum one.No fancy equipment either. A mixing bowl, some measuring cups and spoons, a wooden spoon, a wire whisk, and a few pans were enough for most projects. You don't have to be fancy with your ingredients either. In almost every case you can use generic ingredients and nobody will be able to tell the difference except when you are using chocolate!. Not everyone needs Nigella's oomph or Martha's confidence. I love the baking part of baking, not just the eating. The slow process of measuring, sifting, and stirring; waiting as the dough rises in the oven and the house becomes saturated with the scents of butter and flour and vanilla. Sharing the recipe below and like all my recipes this too is easy peasy.
Beat 1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons soft butter and 4 tablespoons refined oil till creamy.
Sift 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking pwd, 1/2 tsp baking soda and a pinch of salt.
Combine to the above mixture little by little. Add 2 large or 4 small overripe bananas that have been mashed well. Add 1 tsp cinnamon powder and I tsp vanilla essence. Mix well but not too much. Pour in a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 180 deg for 45 mts or till skewer comes out clean. Enjoy.
