My First Bread - Banana Bread

 
This is my first attempt on making a bread and I thought what better way to use those ripe bananas lying in the fruit basket. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of making it and would try more and more types of breads from my blogger friends now onwards.

Serves 4-5 people approx
Preparation and Cooking Time - 1 hr - 1.5 hrs

Ingredients :

All Purpose Flour - 2 cups
Bananas - 2-3
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Salt - 1/4 tbsp
Vanilla - 2 tbsp
Baking Soda -  1 tbsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tbsp
Oil - 3/4 cup
Eggs - 2

Method :
  1. Mix together in a bowl mashed bananas, flour, sugar, salt, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and eggs.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 C. Grease a bread loaf pan and pour the mixture made into it.
  3. Now bake it for 70 mins. Check if it done with a tooth pick. If it comes out clean, then the bread it ready.
  4. Remove it and  place it on a cooling rack . Once cooled turn it and slice it.
  5. Banana bread it ready serve.
