  • 1. Peel ripe bananas, transfer them to a deep bowl, and mash them with a fork into a smooth puree.
  • 2. Melt the butter in the microwave. When the oil has cooled to room temperature, add it to the chopped bananas. Stir well.
  • 3. Add sugar, 2 eggs, and vanilla extract to the resulting mixture. Instead of vanilla extract, you can use 0.25 teaspoon of vanillin or 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar. Once again, stir the ingredients thoroughly.
  • 4. Add the wheat flour to the dough. Add baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
  • 5. Stir the ingredients with a silicone spatula. The batter for the banana bread should be thick and smooth.
  • 6. Carefully transfer the dough into a rectangular baking dish. If you are using a metal, ceramic, or glass baking dish, brush the bottom and sides of the dish with butter.
  • 7. Gently level the dough with a silicone spatula. Bake banana bread in an oven preheated to 350 °F for 50-60 minutes. Check it for doneness with a wooden skewer. If it comes out of the banana bread dry, without any traces of dough, the cake is ready.
  • 8. Cool the finished banana bread a little, carefully remove it from the mold and leave it to cool on a wire rack to room temperature. Cut the finished pastries into portioned pieces and serve with tea or coffee.
    Enjoy your meal!
