Banana & Pecan bread

Banana bread with walnuts

This banana & pecan bread is perfect with afternoon tea or a snack when you get the munchies!

Ingredients

50ml plant based milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1¼ cup plain white flour
2 tablespoons oil (sunflower or any other)
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 heaped tablespoons sugar (brown or white)
Good pinch of salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup chopped pecans (or substitute with walnut)

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 180C, 350F or gas mark 4

  1. Mix the milk and cider vinegar and leave to curdle
  2. In a large bowl mix together mashed bananas, oil and sugar
  3. In another bowl mix flour, salt, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and nuts
  4. Now add the banana mixture and curdled milk to the dry flour mixture and give it a good stir with a wooden spoon
  5. Line the tin (mine is 8.5 x 4.5 x 2.5 inches) with baking parchment and pour the mixture in
  6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C, 350F or gas mark 4 for 35-40 minutes. Best to check after 35 minutes by inserting a skewer and if it comes out clean, the cake is baked!
