  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour/atta
  • 4 medium- sized ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup butter or oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, you may use 1/2 cup if you prefer more sweet bread
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tablespoon regular milk or dairy free milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chunks/chips optional
  • 2 tablespoon chopped walnuts, optional
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 8" loaf tin with parchment paper.

  2. In a mixing bowl add roughly chopped banana and mash it with a fork until smooth.

  3. Add in melted butter or oil whatever you are using. Stir and add vanilla extract.

  4. Into the same bowl sift in flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix gently to combine all the ingredients. Stir in milk if the batter seems too thick.

  5. Lastly add chopped chocolate chunks and chopped nuts, if you are using them.

  6. Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf tin, tap on counter to remove air bubbles.

  7. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 to 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.

  8. Remove cake from oven and let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes.

  9. Cool the cake on wire rack, completely before slicing.

  10. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

If you would use butter then the bread would be vegan. Adjust sugar as per your taste but as we are using four bananas the cake is sweet itself from that. Keep an eye on the bread after 35 minutes. Baking time may vary depending upon the type of oven.
