Whole wheat flour banana bread


The comment from Judy of Judy’s Gold Country cottage , took me back to my childhood days. I always love the rainy days. I grew up in India, which is a tropical country. Rainy season is a different season  there. During that season, it rains almost everyday. Rainy season is a vital season, as the farming of the country very much depends on that season. Anyway, when I was small I always loved the heavy rain in the morning. As I knew that very few students would turn up to school, the whole day in school would be fun, rather study. Though, my mom tried to resist me to go school on those rainy days, but I ended up going to school. Today, in the afternoon while I was sitting in my bedroom, and staring to the cloudy sky, I felt to write down this little memory. No, I'm not chatting , I'm also giving a recipe of banana bread, which you can enjoy with a cup of coffee on a rainy afternoon.



One and one fourth cup whole wheat flour

Half cup sugar

One chopped walnut

One tsp. of baking powder

One tsp. of cinnamon powder

One tsp. of nutmeg powder

One third cup of oil

Two eggs

Two ripe bananas


Preheat the  oven at 350 degree F. Smash the bananas with a fork and keep aside. In a big mixing bowl mix all the dry ingredients, except sugar. In another mixing bowl mix sugar, and eggs very well,with an electric mixer. Gradually mix the dry mixture, while mixing. Then add the banana paste, and mix well. Lastly add the walnuts, and fold with a spatula. Take 9”X5” in baking pan, grease with  oil or butter spray. Pour the batter, and bake for half an hour , or a knife comes out clean while inserted in the middle.
