Banana Bread

Just awhile ago, my son keeps on asking me for food which we do not have in the fridge or in the pantry. He keeps on asking for ice cream, cake, chocolate and lastly bread but I could not give anything to him so I decided to bake banana bread. Banana bread is the easiest recipe that I could prepare.

I’ve got this recipe from Yummy magazine and I always use this every time I make banana cupcake, in short tried and tested recipe. 

1. In a bowl, mix together ½ cup butter at room temperature and 2/3 cup sugar. 
2. Add 1 egg and 2 mashed bananas.
3. Mix in coffee (1 ½ tsp instant coffee dissolved in 1 ½ water) 
4. Add 1 cup plus 2 tbsp flour, ½ tsp baking powder, ½ tsp baking soda and ½ tsp salt. 
5. Spoon the mixture into paper-lined muffin cups. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (1tbsp sugar and mixed with ¼ tsp cinnamon. 
6. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit about 20 to 25 minutes or till sides are lightly browned and tops no longer look wet. 

Note: It took me 45-50 minutes to bake the banana bread when I use the loaf pan. To make it more special, add some nuts and chocolate chips. My son was satisfied with his slice of banana bread and 1 piece of cupcake.
