So last week...The highlight of my busy hectic day was .... A slice of home baked banana bread!! So moist and delicious...will easily beat the store bought one!!
It's easy to find joy in small things...the mundane things...and brighten and freshen up your day....the only problem is you should be able to 'look' for such things around you.
I have always loved banana bread and back in India we would make a very rustic version with semolina, bananas and yogurt.
This one, that I baked, received a comment of being a 'Upscalish' banana bread ...and I agree that it looks kind of fancy with the dried cranberries and chopped almonds:)
Mix together 1.5 cups all purpose flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp salt.
In another bowl mash 2 ripe bananas, 1/3 cup oil, 4 tbsp butter, 1 tsp vanilla essence. Add 1/4 cup dry cranberries and chopped almonds.
Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Bake in greased pan at 350F, till golden brown. Takes about 25-30 mins.
