I have been wanting to try a banana bread for long. And so here it is an easy way to bake your very own banana bread. It was really yumm and hardly took any time putting together. A wonderful tea time snack.
3 ripe bananas(I mashed it with a spoon so that it is not a fine paste and there are a few small pieces of banana left as it is)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or maida
1 egg, beat well
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tbsp melted butter
3/4 to 1 cup sugar(I used 3/4 cup, you can adjust depending on the sweetness you prefer)
3-4 drops of vanilla essence
8-10 raisins,finely chopped (you may also add a few walnuts if you please- the combination of bananas and walnuts is great)
Mash the bananas and keep aside.Take a mixing bowl and add the butter and sugar. Mix well. Now add the bananas, egg and the baking soda. Add in the vanilla essence too and mix well. Fold in the flour little by little so as not to form lumps. Mix and blend all ingredients well. Take a pre-greased cake tin and pour in the mixture. Bake for 45-50 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees celsius. Take out cool on wirerack. Cut into slices and serve.
