Story of the Heart Shaped Eggless Banana Bread

It has been quite a few days since I have been wanting to try baking a banana bread. Most recipes had eggs or applesauce. Eggs are banned at home and I was clueless about getting applesauce in Chennai. Maybe Brown Tree or Amma Naana might have it. Finally, Surya put me on to Balti, the dessert queen who suggested full fat yogurt as a substitute. I also read a few articles on eggless cooking and the various substitutes before I added the ingredients. I did not have a bread loaf pan, so I baked it in the regular cake tin-hence the heart shaped eggless banana bread.

Ripe Bananas 3
Salted Butter 1.5 cups

Sugar 1/2 cup
Honey 2 tbsps
Thick Buttermilk or yogurt 1 cup

Wheat flour 2 cups

All purpose flour 1 cup
Raisins 1 cup


1. In a pan, sieve both the wheat flour and all purpose flour.
2. Add raisins and set aside.
3. Melt the salted butter and add sugar. Beat it nicely until the sugar melts.
4. Add the buttermilk and honey. Whisk well.
5. Peel and mash the bananas and add it to the liquid mixture and whisk again.
6. Add this mixture to the flour.
7. Whisk the batter well and pour into a greased baking pan or a bread pan.
8. Set it in the fridge for a few minutes.
9. Meanwhile, preheat the over for 10 mins at 180c or 350f.
10. Set the batter to bake for 50 mins.

Your banana bread is ready when the crust turns a golden colour and the knife comfortably moves in and out of the bread. Remember, the wheat component makes the bread chewy and the bread has to be consumed within a short time because of the bananas.
