Banana Bread

Since I joined an online Indonesian baking club KBB (klub berani baking) and they happened to have a bbg (blackberry group), words spread fast which and which recipe you should try. And since drooling over other member’s baking photo was not enough we had to try for ourselves. This banana bread came from Elsye, she ‘promoted’ the recipe with being dead easy, quick but yet delish. I tried it the other day when I needed a quick baking fix to ease my mind over overloaded work. And boy she was right, it was easy peasy, even no mixer was needed and most importantly delicious. I reckon you should try it as well.


– 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed

– 1/3 cup melted butter

– 1 cup sugar (I used 3/4 cup)

– 1 egg, beaten

– 1 teaspoon vanilla

– 1 teaspoon baking soda

– Pinch of salt

– 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

I added 1/2 cup of chopped dark chocolate and spread almond slices on the surface.


No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4×8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
