  • Oven
  • F
  • Electric mixer
  • Loaf pan


Dry ingredients:

Wet ingredients:

  • 300 g bananas very ripe
  • 150 g light brown sugar
  • 86 g butter room temperature, softened
  • 60 h yogurt greek or plain
  • large eggs (100 g)
  • 1 tsp g


  • Preheat oven at 170 C for 10 minutes. Butter a 8 x 4 loaf pan.
  • Mix the ingredients listed under dry ingredients, except the walnuts
  • Peel and puree the Bananas.
  • Cream the butter and the brown sugar until very pale.
  • Crack open one egg. Whisk until combined. Add another egg and mix it for a few minutes.
  • Add vanilla extract. Quickly whisk until completely mixed.
  • Now, add the dry ingredients and fold it in using a spatula until completely incorporated.
  • Finally, add the chopped walnuts and mix it roughly.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake at 170 C for 40-50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool down for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan.
  • Serve it as it is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!


  • Mashing the bananas is really simple and doesn't require cleaning the food processor. If you like bits of Bananas, use a potato masher to mash the Bananas.
  • Baking time usually differs from oven to oven. However, sometimes it has taken me 60 minutes. Hence, at the mark of 30 minutes start checking if it's cooked by inserting a long wooden skewer or a steel skewer. The batter shouldn't stick on the skewer if it's cooked.
  • If you'd like to see a cracked top on the bread, preheat the oven at 170 C for 10 mins. Bake for 10 minutes at 200 C and then reduce it to 150 C for the rest of the baking time.
