Banana Raisin Bread / Banana Bread

This recipe doesn’t require an electric beater and very easy to prepare.  Make sure you are using fully ripened  bananas for better taste.  A touch of cinnamon flavor is added in this receipe to add to taste!

Makes: one loaf

All purpose flour – 1 ½ cups
Banana – 3 large bananas
Unsalted Butter – 1/3 cup (melted)
Raisins – ¼ cup
Toasted walnuts – ¼ cup (optional)
Baking soda – 1 tsp
Cinnamon powder – 1 tsp
Sugar – ¾ cup (powdered)
Egg – 1
Vanilla - 1 tsp
Salt – a pinch


Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.

Take a bowl; mash the bananas well by the use of fork or spoon.

Mix in melted butter to the mashed bananas.

Mix in the sugar, eggs, vanilla essence and cinnamon powder.

Sprinkle salt and baking soda over the mixture.

Then mix in flour, raisins and walnuts.

Pour into the greased  loaf pan, transfer into the oven.

Bake at 180 deg C for about 45 - 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from the oven.  Allow it to cool before slicing and then serve.


Do not over mix the batter. This will produce tough bread.

Instead of raisins you can use chocolate chip.
