Banana Bread / Banana Cake Recipe

Banana Bread or is it a Banana cake ? Well even i was confused , but this bread tasted in between a cake and Bread  but believe me they taste absolutely  fantastic . My whole family had a perfect treat this evening when my husband  baked this . So now off to the recipe .


  • Granulated sugar - 150 gms
  • Almonds - 10 nuts , chopped
  • Rasins - few ( As per taste )
  • All purpose flour - 230 gm
  • Eggs - 2 no
  • Unsalted butter -113 gm
  • Banana - 3 no large & ripe
  • Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
  • Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Cinnamon Powder - 1 tsp

Peel the skin of the banana and mash them with the fork .

Melt the butter and cool it .

In a mixing bowl , add the flour , baking soda , baking powder , cinnamon powder , and almonds and mix well .

In a mixing bowl , break the eggs and add the melted butter and mix using a spatula .

Add the mashed banana to the above contents and mix using a spatula .

Now add the above contents to the dry ingredients . Throw in rasins and allow the contents to be combined ( Not mixed as it yields a rubbery bread if mixed too much )

 Preheat the oven to 350 F . Line the bread mold using the foil , and grease the foil with a not stick spray and dust with some flour .
Transfer the combined contents to the mold and bake for 60 minutes .

Bake till the bread is golden brown and the tooth prick inserted comes out clean .

Allow it to cool and remove the bread from the pan .

Slice it and Enjoy!
