BANANA bread


Hi, Semra here…Aylins mom.

Once in a while, we end up with 2 or 3 overripe bananas. Making a banana bread is the best way to put them to good use. 

I hope you enjoy.

Xx, Semra





4 Overripe Bananas (Linked Here)
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil (Linked Here)
2/3 cup Whole Milk (Linked Here)
1 cup sugar (Linked Here)
2 1/2 Cups Unbleached Flour (Linked Here)
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts (Linked Here)
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips (Linked Here)
1/2 Cup Raisins or Currants (Linked Here)
2 tsp Baking Powder (Linked Here)
1 tsp Baking Soda (Linked Here)
1/2 tsp salt (Linked Here)
Zest of one Orange (Linked Here)



  • Preheat oven 350F degrees
  • Mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside. 
  • Mix sugar, eggs until creamy, add milk and oil
  • Mash three of the bananas and add into the mixture
  • Toss 1/4 cup of the flour mixture with walnuts, chocolate chips and raisins mix until they’re coated, set aside.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture into the wet mixture. Try not to over mix.
  • Add vanilla, orange zest, nut mixture and fold into the batter gently.
  • Pour into greased and parchment lined loaf pan.
  • Peel and slice the fourth banana in half lengthwise and place on top of the batter. It creates a beautiful look on top.
  • Bake 60-70 minutes or insert a knife. Should come out clean. It may take longer, depending on your oven.
  • Cool completely before sliced.

    It can be frozen up to four months. If sliced and individually wrapped, make a easy grab for a snack.
