Posted by popular demand! 




Ingredients

Dry
1 ¾ cups flour,  whole wheat (or 2 cup whole grain spelt)
½  cup sugar
1tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
(1 tsp cinnamon, optional)
(1cup chopped walnuts, optional)

Wet
100g butter, very soft or  melted
2 eggs, beaten - optional *
3 over ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract (can be substituted with 1 tsp vanilla sugar)
(1Tbps molasses, optional)

Method

Heat the oven to 175oC.
Grease and flour a loaf tin (23cms x 13sm, approx.)

Combine dry ingredients.
Combine wet ingredients.
Add wet to dry and mix to combine. Do not over mix, as this will make the bread tough.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or un til a skewer comes out clean.

Serve warm or allow to cool. 
This doesn't keep well in warm weather, so store it in the fridge.


*The bread in the picture is made with eggs. Bread made without eggs is also delicious, but will not rise as much.
