Banana hleb / Banana bread

What do you do with brown, spotty bananas that have been sitting for too long in your kitchen? I normally use them in smoothies or for banana bread. With the latter, I have tried and tested a few recipes over the last few years (most of the time I would end up with a soggy, heavy banana bread loaf), but only few weeks ago I found the one I think I am quite happy with (bonus is that it is one of those one-bowl recipes ❤ – oh, the little things :)).

Since bananas are always in season this recipe could be your go-to solution for quick sweet breakfast or a last minute dessert to accompany coffee or a tea all year round. Because of its simplicity your toddler can be involved in any stage. Who would be able to resist all the mashing and mixing and the textures of bananas, eggs, butter…I know somebody who absolutely could not ;).

For this recipe you will need:

3 ripe bananas, 1/3 or 75 gr melted butter, 3/4 to 1 cup (145 to 190 gr) sugar (white, brown, muscovado – it is up to you), 1 egg. 1 teaspoon vanilla paste, pinch of salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder, up to 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 2 tablespoons cocoa and 1 1/2 cup (190 gr) flour.

In a medium bowl mash bananas with fork and add melted butter. Mix in sugar, egg and vanilla paste. Follow with baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Mix well and add flour. When you get nice even mixture pour it into a buttered loaf pan.

In theory, you should wait for loaf to cool down completely on the wire rack since it would be much easier and neater to cut, but as you could see from above picture we were so impatient to try it out…and we will absolutely understand you 😉

Hope you will enjoy!

Šta vi radite sa prezrelim bananama? Ja ih uglavnom ubacim u smoothie ili iskoristim za hleb/kolač od banane. Poslednjih nekoliko godina probala sam nekoliko recepata za banana hleb i nikad nisam bila potpuno zadovoljna (nekako bih uvek dobila previše vlažan, skoro “živ” kolač) , ali pre nekoliko nedelja sam naišla na jedan jako jednostavan i ispostavilo se najbolji do sada (bonus je što se svo “kuvanje” dešava u jednoj posudi ❤ – ah, male stvari ;)).

Pošto su banane uvek u sezoni, ovaj kolač možete praviti tokom cele godine, i odličan je kao opcija za doručak, uz kafu ili čaj, a toliko je jednostavan da vam dete može asistirati u pravljenju u bilo kojoj fazi. Ko bi odoleo svom tom mućkanju, pasiranju, merenju, dodavanju i svim različitim teksturama brašna, jaja, putera…ja znam nekog ko apsolutno ne bi mogao;)

Trebaće vam:

3 zrele banane, 1/3 šolje ili 75gr otopljenog putera, 3/4 do 1 pune šolje šećera (izbor je vaš – beli, braon ili neki treći zaslađivač), 1 jaje, kašičica paste od vanile ili kesica vanile, kašičica praška za pecivo, kašičica cimeta, prstohvat soli, do pola kašičice narendanog oraščića, 1 1/2 šolja ili 190gr brašna i 2 kašike kakaa.

U činiji srednje veličine ispasirajte banane, zatim dodajte otopljeni puter, a potom šećer, jaje i vanilu. Zatim je red na prašak za pecivo i so, i kakao. Dobro izmešajte i na kraju dodajte brašno. Sjedinjenu mas dodajte u pleh za pečenje koju ste prethodno namazali puterom ili obložili papirom za pečenje.

Ugrejte rernu na 180°C i pecite između 45 min i sat vremena. Lako možete proveriti da li je dovoljno pečeno ako je čačkalica koju ste zaboli u sredinu čista kada je izvučete.bb3

U teoriji, hleb bi ste trebali ostaviti da se potpuno ohladi jer se tako mnogo lakše i bolje seče, ali kao što vidite na gornjoj fotki mi smo bili suviše nestrpljivi…tako da cemo vas potpuno razumeti 😉

Prijatno!
