Possibly the simplest recipe for bread ever.
Ok, so technically this isn’t ‘bread’, but it’s still completely and utterly simple. Want to know more great things about this recipe? Of course you do! There’s zero butter in it, and just a smidgen of sugar – you could even use fat free yoghurt if you wished. Totally one for the health conscious out there.
But don’t worry! You won’t be compromising on flavour at all. Plus it could taste even better (imagine!) if you teamed it with, let’s say, peanut butter…or vanilla ice cream…or chocolate ice cream…or nutella…
- 200g all-purpose flour
- 50g dark brown sugar
- 100g loose Greek yoghurt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
Preheat oven to 190°c and place the rack on the middle shelf. Grease a loaf tin with butter and line with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and set aside.
In a large bowl combine the yoghurt, sugar and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until completely incorporated. Fold in the mashed bananas, followed by the flour mixture.
Pour into your loaf tin and simply bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until firm and golden on top.
Makes one loaf of banana bread.
