banana bread

There is no such thing as missing bananas in my fridge. They are always there.  I use them fresh as a snack before training, in my daily smoothie, as an extra for my morning oatmeal our oatmeal cookies and so on. Last night for the very first time I tried to bake a bread. And yes, You guessed – it was banana bread. The recipe is very simple. You can add nuts, dried fruit our berries, but as usual – I baked it as basic as possible.

I wanted to try it for the longest time but struggled to find the right mold for it. I went to Gemoss, went to RITO and other places, but finally found it at Rimi supermarket and paid just 3.98EUR. Such a bargain for 1.5 liter loaf pan (next day I went to Stockmann where the same pan was on sale for just 1.40eur!)


First combine 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of sugar, 1 tbsp of baking soda, 1 tbsp of salt, cinnamon and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine 1/2 cup of greek yogurt with 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of butter and add 3 well blended bananas. Mix everything together and pour the mixture into prepared loaf pan.  Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and cook it for about 60 to 90 minutes. After that – let it cool down, decorate and –  Woula!

Lai pagatavotu banānu maizīti – bļodā kopā samaisi 2 glāzes miltu, 1 glāzi cukura, 1 tējk. cepamā pulvera, 1 tējk. sāls, vaniļu un kanēli pēc izvēles. Citā traukā samiksē pusi glāzes grieķu jogurta, 2 olas, pusi glāzes sviesta un pašu galveno – 3 mīkstus banānus. Uzsildi cepeškrāsni līdz 180 grādiem. Abas masas sajauc kopā, rūpīgi samaisi vai izmanto mikseri un lej iekšā iepriekš sagatavotā formā. Liec to cepeškrāsnī un atstāj vismaz uz stundu. Tās gatavību pārbaudi tajā iedurot koka irbulīti – ja to iedurot un izvelkot nekas nepielīp, veselīgā banānu maizīte ir gatava!
