Banana Honey Bread

Banana Honey Bread

Trust me with this…

Forefinger pointed at right angles to the thumb. Both hands.

Move both arms in a rotating motion, pointing at the sky.

Big grin, lots of teeth 😀

Now, at this point if you have a sudden urgency to say whoop whoop, can we be best friends forever? refrain yourself for just a minute longer…

Bop your knees up and down and sway from side to side. Not crazy, yet.

And sing with me:

“Ohhhh Happy Days!!!”

Because daylight savings, my friend, has finally greeted us again here in Australia! Huzzah!

Banana Honey Bread

Plus, I have ripe bananas!

And even though it was only 16 degrees, we had sunshine!

Ohhh Happy Days!!

Banana Honey Bread
I celebrated with these dense but very moist banana bread babies. They also have rolled oats and walnuts in them, so they’re kind of healthy-ish (if you ignore the butter and sugar), but hey, day light savings started! And we had sunshine today!

Happy days 🙂

Banana Honey Bread (with some rolled oats and walnuts)
Recipe taken from The Curious Country Cook
Makes 1 loaf

4 very ripe small bananas, mashed
115 grams of butter, very soft
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
3/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup rolled oats (old fashion)
1 cup walnuts, chopped
–  Preheat oven to 180 C
–  In a large bowl, beat the bananas, softened butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until combined. (My butter was not as soft as I would have liked, so I ended up having to beat the mixture for quite a while. If your butter is not very soft, I recommend you beat the butter on its own first to soften it up)
– In a small bowl, combine the flour and oats. Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet batter until most of the flour is mixed in. Careful not to over mix.
–  With a spatula, stir in 3/4 cup of nuts and combine until no flour is visible. Again, do not over mix.
–  Pour the batter in a grease standard loaf pan, top with the extra nuts and some sliced banana (optional) and bake for  about 50 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.
–  Cool slightly before serving.

Hope you all are excited about Summer as I am 🙂

      Thanks Carine 🙂 It definitely was good – so moist and chunky with the walnuts and oats! Also gave me the right amount of energy boost for a run afterwards too, which can never be a bad thing, right? haha! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

  2. Daylight savings is my fav thing about summer! It also means my little people aren’t rising at 5.30am any more.
    This looks gorgeous and your photos are fab!

  3. Banana bread is the best! I’ve never made it using honey, before, but I’d imagine that’s what makes it extra moist and delicious! Yum! 😀

  4. I want to try this recipe, it looks great!

  5. Looks amazing. Do you have a receipe for carrot cakes?

  6. Banana bread. Only made it once and it was a disaster lol. Loved how you put the sliced bananas in the middle!
