Banana Bread

We all love banana bread. It’s bizarrely one of those foods that can pass as breakfast, lunch, a snack, dinner or dessert – but hey, we’re not complaining! Whether you love it toasted and drowning in butter, or topped with fruit, we’ve got the perfect recipe.

PREP TIME 20 minutes
COOK TIME 90 minutes
SERVES Makes 12 slices

Ingredients

  • 220g plain flour
  • 30g oats
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 50g soft brown sugar
  • 3 spotty bananas
  • 100ml OGGS® aquafaba
  • 125ml sunflower oil
  • 80ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • squeeze of lemon

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°c (160°c if using a fan oven) and line a loaf tin with parchment paper or a good coating of butter/margarine.
  2. Whisk up your aquafaba. Once it’s achieved the desired chalky-white frothy texture, add the remaining wet ingredients, apart from the banana, and continue whisking until smooth.
  3. Using the back of a fork, simply mush the bananas onto a chopping board/plate and add them to the wet mixture, ensuring that they are stirred in evenly.
  4. Gently fold in the dry ingredients.
  5. Transfer the mixture into your greased loaf tin and cook for 90 minutes. We know, it’s longer than one would hope, but it’s the price we pay for a good banana bread. The bread should then be gold and have risen a few centimetres.

Top Tips

  • Banana bread can be jazzed up in loads of ways. We suggest popping some blueberries or dark chocolate chips into the mixture…
  • If you’re not 100% sure whether or not the bread is fully cooked, don’t hesitate to use the knife trick! Simply slot a knife into the centre of the cake, and if it comes out clean – bingo.
  • If you have any leftover banana bread, you have options. It can freeze for up to 4 weeks and it defrosts by thawing over the course of a few hours. However, why freeze when you can have banana bread French toast? Simply soak the left-over slices in a few spoons’ worth of whisked up aquafaba, and fry in some butter/margarine on each side for 2 minutes until they’re beautifully crisp and golden. Top with goodies of your choice!
