How to Make Bananella Loaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Put first five ingredients in a bowl and mash with potato masher or fork. Small banana lumps are acceptable but try to get a mush-like consistency.
  2. Sift flour and add to wet ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips if desired.
  3. Pour batter into 9" x 5" x 3" loaf pan (other sizes would work--if using mini loaves bake approximately 30 minutes. Test with skewer or knife in middle until it comes out clean.

    Sprinkle slivered almonds on top, if desired.

    Bake approximately 45-50 minutes. May need more time.

    Cool on rack for 10 minutes, remove from pan. Drizzle with cinnamon glaze, if desired.
  4. *All-purpose flour is fine--just add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt and sift together with flour.
