About 50% Whole Grain Yeasted Banana Bread Recipe

If you have over ripe bananas at home, then you must bake this bread.The bread is soft and moist with a very subtle- almost imperceptible flavour of banana. The bread has a wonderful balance of sweetness and salt.

50% Whole Grain Yeasted Banana Bread

Ingredients to make 50% Whole Grain Yeasted Banana Bread

  • 1 and ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 and ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 and 1/4 teaspoon instant dry yeast
  • 1 medium sized ripe banana (mashed)
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup warm water

How to make 50% Whole Grain Yeasted Banana Bread

  1. Whisk together first three ingredients in a large bowl. Add melted butter and whisk well. Mix together warm milk, banana and honey.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix yeast and 3-4 tablespoons of warm water. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Yeast will turn frothy. Add yeast to milk mix.
  3. Add this to the flour mix and knead. Keep adding warm water while kneading. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes till you a get a really soft and supple dough. Place the dough in a greased bowl. Cover and keep for 1 hour or till it doubles.
  4. Transfer the dough to a floured counter and shape into a log. Place it in a greased 8 ½ x 4 ½ inch loaf pan. Cover with a kitchen cloth and leave it to rise for 1 hour or till it crests above the rim of the pan.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or till it turns golden from the top and the bottom sounds hollow when tapped. If the bread appears to be browning too quickly, cover with a foil.
  6. Remove from the pan after 10 minutes. Cool in the rack. Slice next day.

My Tip:

Make sure the dough is really soft. Since the recipe has 50% whole wheat flour, it will keep absorbing water. Let the dough rest after kneading for sometime before proceeding.
