My Tip:

I have baked this bread a lot many times and with variations. For healthy option you can replace the self raising flour with wheat flour + 2 & a 1/2 tsp baking powder. If you don’t have self raising flour at home, then simply use plain flour + 2 & a 1/2 tsp baking powder. Make sure you use ripe bananas for this recipe as I believe it helps to enhance the flavors. Use a large loaf pan as there should be room for the bread to rise while covered in the foil. The cake browns quickly after removing the foil, so keep an eye on the last 10 minutes. Also, Different ovens work differently. So, i would suggest you check once after 25 to 30 minutes and then cover back with foil and let it bake.
