Banana Bread

 My NA puts her feet down to bring home Banana's all the time she sees that in a store ..I always wonder if there is Genes for taste buds ? because both of her parents dislikes the taste of banana , her Grand parents love Banana's though.
NA insists on buying Banana's each time we go to a Grocery store and she promises to finish it too but at times she breaks her promise.
I somehow manage to avoid that smell of over ripe Banana's in our house ,  make some Unniappom (Kerala snack) or Ada ( another Kerala Snack ) or else I have it with  Idiyappom or Puttu ( Kerala style Break fast dishes made from Rice Flour) Well this time , I made this Banana Bread and NA just loved it , packed these for her lunch today :) as am sure she'll finish it.

Mixed Wheat flour with All purpose flour to make it little more healthier and the measurements here makes just a small loaf of banana bread , do double the scale if you are Banana Fan's.


All Purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup 
Baking Soda - 1/3 tsp 
Salt - a pinch 
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1 no
Banana - 1 no
Yogurt - 3 table spoon 
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 4 table spoon 


* Preheat the oven to 350 degree F 
* Sift All purpose flour + Wheat Flour + Baking Soda and salt . Keep Aside. 
* Beat Sugar with butter (Butter in Room temperature) 

* Add Banana and continue beating. (because it was ripe , added the whole banana to it ,may mash it before adding ) 

*Add Egg and Vanilla essence , continue beating.

* Add yogurt and beat till there are no lumps seen and all ingredients are well combined.

* Fold in the sifted flours (Wheat flour + All purpose flour + Baking soda + Salt)

* Use a spoon to fold all the ingredients well  , as beating the mixture after adding flour is not a good idea. 
    Grease a loaf baking pan and pour the mixture to it. 

* Bake these at 350 degree F for 30 to 35 minutes till a     fork when inserted comes out clean. 

& then Serve and then store if any left ,  in an air tight container, save these for snacking the following days.
