This time, my weekend has begun, unlike last week when I had to work a Saturday to make up for an unexpected holiday. I wish every night could be a Friday night when I get to lie down on the sofa and watch TV all night. I rarely cook elaborate meals on Friday night. Bare minimum to stop me from being hungry. So it is usually some kind of pressure cooker rice dish like Mint Pulao or Vangi Bhaat. I don’t like doing dishes either on Friday nights.

This week though, I have an added treat to my Friday night. We bought these large bananas on Sunday that were starting to go all black on the outside and ripe on the inside. I felt my whole house had begun smelling bananas. Usually, overripe banana means making Mangalore Banana Buns for me. But this time, I tried a new way of using them up in this zero effort Banana Bread. It takes like 10 minutes to whip up the batter and then just put it in the oven and allow it to cook while you continue with your other work.

This Banana Bread is dense and moist as any good banana bread is meant to be. It is perfect to eat at tea time as isn’t too sweet. I pretty much ate it for tea, snacks and dessert. So there isn’t a time when it isn’t the right time to eat this Banana Bread.

The Banana Bread has a slight hint of cinnamon. I’m not a very big fan of cinnamon and I usually prefer to keep it in low notes in any food I make, so I added just half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder to the bread. You can add up to one teaspoon, anything beyond that and it will overpower the taste of bananas. I used condensed milk to add liquidity and sugar, and hence used less sugar in the bread. If you want to skip the condensed milk, just use more of regular milk and sugar. You can also add maple syrup instead.

If you have never baked a cake in your life, then I’d suggest starting out with this Banana Bread, it is a no fail and zero effort recipe.

Recipe Type:  Dessert
Cuisine:            International
Prep Time:     20 minutes
Cook time:     55 minutes
Yield:                1 loaf


Ingredients:


3 ripe Banana
1.5 cups All Purpose Flour (Maida)
100gms sweetened Condensed Milk
1/3 cup Butter (melted and cooled)
1/2 cup powdered Sugar
1/4 cup Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder (Optional)

Method:


Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
Brush the bottom and sides of a loaf tin with butter and dust with flour. I used a 9"x 3"x 2.5" loaf tin.
In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon powder, baking powder and baking soda and keep aside.
Mash the bananas.
Add the condensed milk, melted butter, milk and vanilla extract to the mashed bananas and mix until combined.
With a wooden spoon or a spatula, fold in the dry ingredients gently into the wet ingredients until you get a thick batter. Do not over mix, else the bread will become hard.
Scrape the batter into the greased loaf tin.
Bake for 50-60 minutes until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Remove the bread from the pan after 5-8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Allow it to cool and then slice it.
Serve at room temperature or warm.
