I didn't take chances in checking it ahead of time and left it almost to its nearing. I ended up with a tasty bread but one that was quite heavy. However Hubby dear and Konda liked it a lot and I guess I settle my case on that. I used roasted almonds that gave a delicious nutty taste to the bread.
This is the second post for our Bake a thon series.
Banana Oat Bread
Wheat flour - 1 1/2 cup
Oatmeal flour - 1/2 cup
Ripe bananas - 4 nos (1 & 1/2 cup)
Brown sugar 3/4 cup
Olive oil - 1/3 cup
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Egg Replacer - 1 tbsp + 3 tbsp water for 1 egg
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Pinch of salt
Chopped roasted almonds, to garnish
How to make the bread
Pre-heat oven to 185 C.
In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients together.
Puree the banana and mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl.
Fold in dry ingredients into the wet ingredients gently
Lightly oil a baking tin with olive oil. Line the baking tray with butter paper.
Pour the batter into the baking tin. Sprinkle nuts of choice.
Place the baking tin in the oven and let it bake for about 50-55 mins or until a pierced toothpick comes out clean.
Serve warm or cold.
Check when the timer is at 45 mins, to see if the bread is done. I had to bake again for a while.
