Banana bread recipe video – Simple quick banana bread recipe with video and step by step photos. I don’t bake often but whenever we have overripe bananas I bake banana bread, banana muffins, banana cake and moist chocolate banana cake. This banana bread recipe is one of our favorites and has been tried by me so many times and has always turned out great. If you are a beginner do check out the video I have shared below.
This banana bread recipe uses a single egg so the results are too good and is lighter than a eggless banana bread. This is a no fail recipe, even a beginner can bake this with wonderful results very easily.
This works good with whole wheat flour (atta) or plain flour (maida) and even with half of each. I have used whole wheat pastry flour which yields the same results as using half regular whole wheat flour (atta) and half plain flour. Earlier I have also made this using only regular whole wheat flour, the difference is a slightly denser banana bread.
I have used organic turbinado sugar, any kind of sugar just works good here. The color of the cake may be lighter if made using white sugar. Since I used the turbinado sugar the banana bread turned out to be lightly golden to brown.
