Moist  Banana Bread


10 pieces


1 hour 25 minutes



– 4 (400 g) overripe American bananas, mashed – 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour – 2 teaspoons baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1/2 cup melted butter – 2 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt – 2/3 cups brown sugar – 2 large eggs – 1/3 cup walnuts – 2 1/2 tablespoons dark rum – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Mash the bananas using the back of the spoon or a masher, until mushy.

Step 2

 Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized bowl and, using your hands or a wooden spoon, combine well.

Step 3

In a large bowl, mix the melted butter, sour cream (or plain yogurt) and sugar by hand, with a wooden spoon. Beat until blended, then add the eggs one at a time. Mix well.

Step 4

Stir in the mashed bananas, walnuts, dark rum and vanilla extract.

Step 5

Add the flour mixture, a third at a time, stirring well with the wooden spoon after each batch. Transfer the batter into a 9x5-inch loaf tin and bake in the middle of the oven for 60 - 75 minutes.

Step 6

 Insert a toothpick, fine skewer or a cake tester in the center of the banana bread. It should come out clean. Leave in the tin on a rack to cool, about 30 minutes.
