Banana Bread Recipe

The banana bread is a kind of plum banana. It is difficult to establish the original recipe , in fact there are several variations. We offer you a very simple , fast and butter-free one . This American dessert should be served for breakfast, accompanied by butter and jam, or enjoyed on its own.

Banana bread or a banana bread or plumcake , a preparation whose recipe has more than one advantage; it is easy and fast to implement and allows us to use overripe bananas that there would eat willingly.

The most common and available bananas everywhere are cavendish , although they are not among the most nutritious varieties (in terms of antioxidants and beta-carotene), they contain a good dose of potassium and are cheap . Even when their skin is brown, they stay tasty for a few days, but not everyone likes them when they reach such an advanced level of ripeness, so the banana bread recipe is a must.

The original recipe is American and it seems to be found as early as 1930. There is also a National Banana Bread Day on February 23rd.

The recipe that we propose does not contain butter , an ingredient that is included in almost all versions, but oil . Even the ‘ vanilla extract is an ingredient that is frequently found in American recipes, as well as cinnamon . You can therefore add them to your taste.
