Do you ever wonder what to do with overripe bananas apart from letting them rot away in your fruit basket? Sometimes it's exactly this state of massive overripeness that you need - especially when you're baking banana bread.
I also had some blueberries in the fridge so I thought, for a change, I will alter my 'pure' banana bread recipe and try something new.
- 230 g white spelt flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 60 g brown sugar
- 40 g coconut sugar
- 1 vanilla pod
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg
- 125 butter
- 200 g greek yoghurt
- 2 - 3 overripe bananas
- 125 g blueberries
1. Mix the flour with the baking powder and set aside.
2. Mash your bananas with a fork and set aside.
3. Wit a sharp knife, cut the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the vanilla seeds.
4. In a big bowl, mix the vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and the two kinds of sugar with the flour.
5. Add the egg to the mixture.
6. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, be careful not to burn it. Let it cool down slightly before adding it to the mixture.
7. Start whisking everything together whilst adding the yoghurt.
8. Add the mashed banana and fold everything together.
9. Now you only need to add the blueberries. With a spoon or a spatula fold them into the batter.
10. Grease a loaf tin and add the batter to the tin.
11. Bake at 180 C for about 45 - 50 minutes. Try inserting a skewer for 3 seconds, if it comes out clean the cake is done. Let it cool down before you take it out of the tin.
