Banana Bread w Tips

Banana Bread w Tips
I just wanted to share something lovely and amazing that showed up at my house the other day. Banana bread! Ok, so it didn’t just “show up” out of nowhere without any prompting. I made it, with the help of a friend, 3 overripe bananas and a bread machine. Yup, that’s right.

I really wish scratch ‘n’ sniff technology extended to the internets because, damn, this bread smells UH-mazing!

So, now you want the recipe, don’t you? Yes, you do.

Easy Vegan Banana Bread
Yield: 1-1/2 lb loaf

3 ripe medium-sized bananas, mashed
1/2 cup soy or other non-dairy yogurt, your choice of flavors (I used lemon and didn’t notice the flavor)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1-3/4 cups all purpose flour, unsifted
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Combine ingredients in pan of bread machine according to manufacturer’s instructions, except walnuts. Set on “quick bread” or “cake” setting and watch closely. After 5 minutes of mixing, scrap down the sides of the bowl. Once mixing is complete, toss in the walnuts and use a spatula or butter knife to swirl the nuts into the batter, leaving some nuts exposed on top. Allow the machine to complete its baking cycle, and let the bread cool in the machine for 10 minutes before removing from the pan and transferring to a cooling rack. The amazing scent will test your patience, but you’ll be best served by allowing the loaf to cool completely before slicing with a serrated bread knife and serving. No jam needed.

To make this recipe without a bread machine:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a large loaf pan and set aside. Combine all ingredients (except nuts) in a bowl and combine thoroughly. Pour into loaf pan, add nuts and swirl in with a spatula or butter knife (as above). Bake 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
