Banana Nut Bread

If I've to explain this I'll have to say eggless, butterless, sugarless, yummy banana bread with all natural lovely flavours. I used the Apple sauce coated nuts in this (the recipe of which I posted yesterday) and banana which is full of sugar. It is nice bread eventhough there aren't many regular bread ingredients in it. I didn't puree the banana. Instead I chopped it into small bits and added along with nuts. The bread got its sweetness from banana and jaggery on the coated nuts.

You need
  • Wheat flour - 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Yeast - 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Salt as required
  • Milk - 1/2 cup or little more if required to make dough
  • Banana - 1
  • Nuts of your choice - 1/2 cup (I used Apple sauce coated nuts)

  • Mix together yeast and sugar in a glass and add little lukewarm milk. Stir and keep aside.
  • Allow it to stand for 15 minutes and allow it to ferment
  • In a bowl mix together wheat flour and salt.
  • Add the fermented yeast into this and mix well
  • Add remaining milk little by little to get a sticky dough. 
  • Keep the dough on a clean surface. Cover it with bowl and leave it undisturbed for 10 minutes.
  • By this time chop banana and nuts into small pieces
  • After 10 minutes knead the lightly raised dough again on the surface and roll it lengthwise with your hand. 
  • Put the banana and chopped nuts over it.
  • Bring the dough together. Knead it a few times. It will be difficult with lots of banana pieces and nuts. 
  • Keep it in an oiled baking dish and leave for 1 hr. Cover it completely with a plastic cover. 
  • Preheat the oven to 250 degree centigrade. 
  • After 1 hr when the dough has increased in size, give it a milk wash, move it to the oven and put the temperature at 200 degrees centigrade and bake for 15-20 minutes.
