Quick and easy baking – Banana bread


I have tried many recipes of banana breads, but this one is the best.
It is from the “Plenty More” cooking book for Yotam Ottolenghi, a bible that I am sure many of you have at home. It is easy and quick to make and is a great breakfast or snack.

I just changed a couple of things, I usually use less sugar than given in the recipes, I used Olive oil as a vegetable oil, added spices and used less flour but added wheat germs to the preparation.

The texture is light and moist, it’s really delicious.

Pre-heat your fan oven on 170c°

1- In a Kitchen Aid or bowl mix
2 handfuls of organic almonds previously roasted in the oven.
3 large ripe bananas mashed.
200g brown sugar.
3 eggs.
1/2 a tsp nutmeg, cinnamon, lime leaves powders.
1 tsp vanilla powder.

2- Add
140ml milk.
70g olive oil.

3- Then add
255g flour.
20g wheat germs.
6g baking powder.

Mix well and pour the preparation into a cake form with baking paper.

Bake for 40 min on 170c° and approx. 25 min on 150c°. Check with a knife if the middle of the bread comes out dry. It’s ready. Enjoy!
