1medium whole egg
1medium egg's white
10toasted and chopped almonds or walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. Line an 8”x5” loaf pan with parchment paper or grease it and then dust it with flour.
Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Keep aside.
Mash the banana with a fork.
In a bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla, melted butter, and mashed banana for 2 minutes using a hand mixer on medium speed, or whisk for three minutes.
Add the dry ingredients and mix well for a few seconds.
Add the nuts and fold into the batter using a spatula or a wooden spoon for 30 seconds.
Pour the batter in the previously prepared baking loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes to one hour, the baking time depends on your oven.
The banana bread fully baked when a toothpick or a wooden skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Place the loaf bread over a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing or storing.
- When using salted butter, omit the salt from the recipe.- Do not use overripe bananas. It will produce an off-flavor.- You can use half white sugar and half brown sugar, but only using brown sugar might turn this loaf bread into a super moist and crumbly bread.- Ovens are different, so check the bread after 30 minutes of baking time.- If your oven does not prompt you when it reached the desired temperature, allow the oven to preheat for 15 minutes before placing the loaf in it.- Do not scoop the flour from the flour bag or container. Spoon the flour in the measuring cup and level it with the back of butter knife.- You can use this recipe for making banana muffins, and the baking time will be between 16 to 20 minutes. Depending on your oven, check the muffins 10 minutes after the baking time.- This recipe is Nigella Lawson’s, and I have modified it a little.
