Really Quick Banana Bread. Makes 1 loaf

1 1/4 cups (310 mL) unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup (125 mL) grapeseed oil
2/3 cup (160 mL) sugar
3 large, very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp (5 mL) pure vanilla extract
  • Butter and flour a 9 × 5 × 3 inch (2 L) loaf pan. Tap out all the excess flour from the pan and set aside.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
  • Beat the eggs in a medium bowl; add the oil, sugar, mashed bananas, and vanilla. Beat well to combine.
  • Fold the banana mixture into the sifted flour mixture, ensuring that the ingredients are evenly combined.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and bake in a preheated 350°F (180°C) oven for 45 to 50 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, and then turn out onto a rack.
  • I thank Helen Redpath, Gourmet Warehouse’s food manager, for passing this recipe on to me. I have lightened the quantity of sugar to compensate for using really brown bananas. The darker the skin on the banana the sweeter the fruit is. This is a great way to use very ripe bananas.
