- If you like to add some crunchiness to the bread, you can toss in the batter some chopped nuts or raisins. For me, I love to add chocolate chips. I find them enough.
- Please measure the flour correctly, because if you add more flour than the correct measurement, the bread will turn out dry.
- Don't overmix the batter after adding the flour, if you do so the bread won't rise well and will have a rubbery texture.
What if I don't have ripe bananas?
If you don't have ripe bananas and you don't want to wait any longer to make this banana bread, you can put your bananas unpeeled in a baking sheet then bake in the oven at 180C for 15-20 minutes.
How to mash the bananas?
You can mash the bananas either by slice them then putting the slices in the food processor and mashing them or simply use a fork to mash the banans. I prefer using the fork; it is much simpler.
Can I freeze this banana bread?
Yes, you can. This bread freezes extremely well. Wrap the bread slices in a plastic wrap well then put in a freezer container and put in the freezer for 1-2 months. When you need a slice just leave it to defrost at room temperature for when you need it.
