Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. 1 1/2 cups : All purpose flour / maida
  2. 1 tsp : Baking Soda
  3. 1/2 tsp : salt
  4. 1/2 Cup : butter melted ( if using salted butter skip the salt )
  5. 1 Cup : Granulated white sugar
  6. 1 tsp : Vanilla extract
  7. 2 Medium Sized : Over ripe bananas mashed

  11. For the glaze : 1 tbsp : butter

  13. 1/4 cup : Brown sugar
  14. 2 to 3 tbsp : Milk
  15. 1 tsp : Vanilla extract
  16. 1/4 cup : Mixed nuts chopped..( i used cashews, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds)


  1. Sift the all purpose flour along with baking soda and salt . In a separate bowl add the melted butter and sugar, whisk until combined. Add the eggs, vanilla extract and whisk again.
  2. To this add the sifted flour mixture n mix well. Lastly fold in the mashed bananas, sour cream and dusted walnuts.
  3. Pour this batter into the lined loaf pan n even the top with the back of the spoon. Bake it in a preheated oven at 180°c / 350°f for an hour or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  4. My perfectly baked beauty. Slice and serve as it is or with that added effect glaze. i promise you will not regret, trust me!
  5. For the glaze :   In a small sauce pan add the butter and cook this on medium heat until dark brown but not burnt.

  8. Once set slice n serve. Yumminess to the core. Simple Banana bread with a makeover ...I'm lovin it !!
