I inherited this recipe from my mother. She always used strawberry yoghurt in her banana loaf and it cane out perfectly so I’ve never questioned this.
What You'll Need - Makes 2 Loaves
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
4 Ripe Large Bananas
1 Cup Strawberry Yoghurt (You can use plain yoghurt if preferred)
3/4 Cup Oil
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Baking Soda (Bicarbonate Soda)
1/2 Tsp Salt
Prep - 5 Minutes
Preheat Oven to 180 degrees bake
Peel and mash bananas - i like to have chunks of banana in the bread so there's no need to make sure this is smooth.
Let's Get Cooking - 60 Minutes
In a large bowl add the sugar and cooking oil and combine. Add the eggs one at a time and combine.
Add the mashed bananas and yoghurt and mix thoroughly.
In another bowl mix the flour with the cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and combine.
Grease a bread tin with oil and place half the batter and bake for about 45 minutes (Until golden brown. When you pierce the bread with a knife it should come out somewhat clean)
Alternatively I make this in a bundt cake tin for a one large banana bread.
