Banana Bread Recipe #1 a.k.a. Curtis’s Banana Bread
1 2/3 cups Plain Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
1 1/4 cups Caster Sugar
2 large Eggs
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
3 large Ripe Bananas, mashed
2 tbsp Natural Yogurt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cups Walnuts, toasted and chopped
Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan).
Grease and line base of a large 13.5cm x 23.5cm loaf pan.
Beat eggs and sugar together in a stand mixer or with electric beaters on medium-high speed for 10 minutes, or until very thick and pale and the mixture forms a ribbon when beater is lifted. Reduce speed to low and beat in the oil in a steady stream. Mix in the vanilla and yoghurt and then the walnuts.
Add the bananas.
Sift together the flour, salt, bicarbonate soda and cinnamon together in a large bowl and pour wet mixture onto the dry mixture, folding gently but thoroughly.
Pour mixture into pan and bake for 1 1/4 hours, or until a skewer comes out clean when tested.
Cool in pan briefly then turn out onto a rack to cool.
