Banana bread recipe

With our banana bread recipe, you’ll not only get to enjoy a sweet snack with a cup of tea or coffee, you’ll also be able to take advantage of the ripe fruit in your kitchen. And if you want to add something a little bit extra, you can add chopped nuts, chocolate chips, raisins or cranberries. The banana’s texture keeps the bread fresh, so it keeps for several days.

Aceite de oliva sabor suave /light flavor olive oil













Ingredients (4 pax.)

  • 2 cup of pastry flour.
  • 2 cup of brown sugar.
  • 1/2 cup of light flavor olive oil.
  • 3 ripe bananas.
  • 4 free-range eggs.
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • 1 pinch of salt.
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts.
  • 1/2 cup of milk.


  1. Put the bananas, sugar and milk into a bowl.
  2. Mash with a fork until it just forms a puree – pieces of banana should still be noticeable. This puree is what will make the bread slightly sweet.
  3. Sift the flour into another bowl. Add the baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix well. Add the oil and the vanilla extract combining all of the ingredients. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs well until they are creamy and form soft peaks, similar to the consistency of a sponge cake, add to the flour mix.
  4. For the final step before baking, fold the mashed bananas throughout the flour mixture with a fork so that the fruit can be appreciated.
  5. Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin and sprinkle the chopped nuts over the top.
  6. Bake the cake in a preheated oven at 180ºC for about 40-45 minutes. To avoid burning the top of the cake, cover it with a piece of aluminum foil for the last 10 minutes.
  7. Take it out of the oven and leave it to cool. Take the bread out of the tin and have a snack!
