Banana Walnut Bread - Eggless


A humble fruit that is delicious. A humble fruit that look beautiful. A humble fruit that fills your tummy. A humble fruit that cures your body from constipation. A humble fruit that is available throughout the year. The humble fruit that most of you love.

Oh yeah I know you guessed it right. The banana is the hero of today's recipe. :)

I so much love banana that I can have it 365 days a year for the next 75 years if I survive 100 like some one blessed :P

Incorporating banana's or rather replacing eggs with bananas in baking is a boon I say. It adds taste, aroma and incredibly tempting flavor.

I had a dozen of super ripen bananas at home and couldnt stop day dreaming about banana bread. Hence shook off my laziness and whipped up the batter within 10 mins. Put it in the oven and sat with satisfaction. It was 10 mins up and the kitchen was already smelling heavily of banana.. Ummmmmm.. thats when disaster struck in the form of power cut. Oh the dare devil against baking was there. :( Waited patiently for the next 1 hour until it came back and with so much of prayers I switch the oven on again. My prayers got answered and was blessed to get a pretty soft, dense, delicious banana bread out of the oven.

Everyone liked it, so did I :)

Recipe inspired from my buddy blogger Jeyashri - here.



Banana - 3 small (or 2 large)
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Maida - 3/4 cup
Brown sugar - 3/4 cup
Milk - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1/4 cup
Curd - 2 tblsp
Cooking soda - 1 tsp
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
Walnuts - 10



Sieve maida, wheat flour and cooking soda together and keep it aside.

Chop bananas into small pieces and grind it along with sugar and milk into a smooth paste.

Now take the ground mixture in a large mixing bowl. Add oil, vanilla essence and curd to it and mix well. Finally fold in the sifted flour mixture into it.

Chop the walnuts and mix them into the batter.


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Grease a bread tin with butter and dust all purpose flour evenly. Pour in the batter into the bread tin and bake at 180°C for 40-50 mins.

Remove from oven and allow the bread to cool on wire rack for a while before cutting out slices.

How did you get the dark brown glaze on top? Did you sprinkle some regular sugar or brown sugar on top before baking?

tnnana said...

What is Maida and what is curd? I was so happy to see your recipe since my grandson is allergic to eggs and so has never been able to enjoy banana bread. I plan to make it as soon as I find out what those 2 ingredients are.
Thank you.
Grateful Nana

Tnnana - Maida is all purpose flour and Curd is Yoghurt. Hope your grandson loves likes the bread :)

Please let me know Nitya can I make this bread in LG convection Microwave?
It's looking very yummy and can't resist myself to trying this, but Alas! I don't have an OTG at home :(

Nithya said...

Pehli Resoi - You can surely bake in that oven. Give me a cheers, I have the same oven too and the bread was baked it that only :)

Use the convection mode to bake it. It will work fine.

The perfect banana bread i've ever come across!!

Vasanth said...

I tried the recipe exactly to the T.. But it is still dense inside! I baked it for almost 40 mins and the outside it kind of burnt and hard:-(

Madhu said...

Nithya, I tried it and was a superhit at home. Baked it only for 38-40 mins as the top started to develop cracks. Thanks for the wonderful recipe..
