Joshua's Banana Bread V2

https://joshuatshaffer.com/recipes/joshuas-banana-bread-v2/

My own spiced version of banana bread. It’s fairly sweet but still light and filling enough to have as a snack.

Update 2022-08-14: I doubled the ingredient amounts because I usually make double batches anyway.

Ingredients

Wet side:

  • 4 pcs over ripe banana
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Dry side:

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cup whole wheat flour

Optionally:

  • Some seeds and/or nuts for texture
  • Some more brown sugar to dust on top

Directions

  1. Set oven to preheat at 350 °F.
  2. Mash up bananas and mix all wet ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Mix all dry ingredients in separate bowl.
  4. Fold wet and dry ingredients together. Don’t over mix, we do not want to develop the gluten.
  5. Optionally, mix in nuts and seeds.
  6. Pour into a greased pan.
  7. Optionally, sprinkle a layer of sugar on top for a crunchy crust.
  8. Cook in 350 °F oven until it is done (about 45 minutes). To check for doneness stab a skewer or knife into the center and then pull it out. If it comes out mostly clean, the bread is done.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool before removing from pan. At least 10 minutes.
  10. Cut up and serve or refrigerate for later.
