Continuing with my Quick Breads, I decided to try my hands with a Banana Bread again. All my previous bakes with banana, be it plain muffins or with chocolates, were made with all purpose flour completely. I not only wanted that typical mildly sweet, tea cake types, that was also healthy in terms of flour. Though I am not too deep into avoiding all purpose flour all the time, I did think I went overboard with my maida purchase.
So just to make myself feel better I decided to make a quick bread that I saw in Gayathri's space. I even went ahead and added just a tablespoon of flour in the recipe and baked for a longer time. The resultant quick bread was so delicious. I was in a haste to taste it and couldn't stop with just one. Surprisingly even my chocoholic boys loved it and that's a big thing!
This is so totally healthy and won't mind repeating it again for regular week day snack for the school. However this tastes great when it is slightly warm.
I don't normally prefer to use white vinegar and always replace it with Apple Cider. I personally feel the bakes end up better with apple cider than vinegar. I also used only 4 tbsp of butter instead of 6 tbsp. I am sure the extra two tbsp would have added to the taste. However since I was anyway going to healthy I wanted to cut all corners!
I was so happy with the end loaf. I somehow don't like the banana flavour much in the baked dish, even though I have baked some in the past. Mostly other than tasting to see how it does, I leave it to either Konda or Hubby dear.
