Eggless Banana Bread

Eggless banana bread

This bread is a favourite at home and I make it everytime there are some overripe bananas. My recipe calls for egg in it. But this time was a little different. We have not been buying eggs thanks to this. I looked around and found a eggless recipe and the result has left me totally satisfied.

The bread tasted great with a spongy texture. I will never have to use eggs in banana bread again!! The best past was it was so easy to put together. Adding a little more sugar, this bread can also be baked as a cake. The aroma of banana in it, makes one remember the Mangalore Buns:) Now, that's a recipe for another post.

  7. this looks great, but did you mean to say 4 cups of all-purpose flour? I am guessing the second 2 cups was a typo...

  12. I accidently put 3 cups of flour and it ruined the consistency of the bread :( but I'm sure if I had done it right then it would have turned out perfectly!
