Banana Bread with Black Sesame Seeds & Caramel
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup raw sugar
2 eggs (at room temperature)
4 bananas (super ripe)
1/4 milk & 1 teaspoon white vinegar (mixed together)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup caramel bits (or any chocolate bits)
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees.
Prepare your loaf / tin with grease proof paper and a light spray of oil.
Sift the flour, soda and salt together and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugar – it will be appear crumbly. Add the eggs and whisk well to make a smooth, fluffy and consistent batter.
Whisk in the milk and vanilla.
Peel the bananas and put them in whole into your batter and with a potato masher or fork, break up the banana to your liking (I like a few banana chunks throughout the batter).
Add the sifted ingredients and gently stir with a spatula until just combined and making sure not to overwork the mixture.
Finally add your bits and seeds and fold through – or alternatively you can pour your mixture into the tin and then add your bits and seeds over the top and lightly swirl if you prefer your extra bits to be at the top.
Cook for 45-50 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean – do not over bake because it can dry out the bread.
Serve with anything, I personally love it with cashew or any nut butter.
