i am sending this to melissa's Bread baking day - breakfast bread event .
All purpose flour - 1 3/4 cup
Brown sugar - 1/2 cup, tightly packed
baking powder - 1 tsp
baking soda - 1/4 tsp
salt - 1/4 tsp
cardamam pdr - 1 tsp
egg - 1, lightly beaten
zest of 1 orange
butter - 2 tbsp, melted and cooled
very ripe bananas - 3 nos, mashed well
oil - 2 tbsp
vanilla essence - 1 tspchocolate chips - to garnish
Preheat oven to 350 deg F.Spray the loaf pan with some non stick vegetable spray and set aside.
In a large bowl sift flour,baking powder,soda and salt.Set aside.In another bowl combine mashed banana,eggs,melted butter,oil,vanilla essence,zest and cardamam pdr.With a rubber spatula ,lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined and the batter is thick and chunky.Do not overmix at this point.It need not be smooth.Overmixing the batter will yield tough,rubbery bread.Scrape batter into the loaf pan and top it with some chocolate chips for garnish.Place it in the center rack and bake for about 40-45 mins or until golden brown and tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.Place on a wire rack to cool and then remove from the pan.Serve warm or room temperature.
