"Roasted" Bananas Banana Bread. A recipe rewind, because some things are too good to miss!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Recipe rewind, because in the beginning there is a blogger who has no readers. She still posts great food in hopes that the readers will come..........

"Roasted" Bananas Banana Bread
by the seat of my pants!

3 ripe bananas
1/2 c butter

2 eggs
1 t vanilla
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c milk + 2 T if needed

1 c whole wheat flour ( I prefer White Whole Wheat flour)
1 c unbleached all-purpose flour
1 t salt
1 t baking soda

1/2 c walnut pieces

Melt the butter in a large skillet, add sliced (or chunks) bananas. Saute until the bananas are soft and a deep golden brown. Remove pan from the heat source and let cool.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Set aside. 

In a medium-size bowl, add eggs and sugar. Beat well, add vanilla, the 1/2 c milk and banana mixture (use a silicone scraper to get all the banana goodness from the pan). Beat well.

Combine wet and dry ingredients. If the mixture seems too stiff, add the additional 2 T of milk to make it moist and easy to work with. Turn dough into prepared pan, top with walnut pieces.

Bake 350 degrees, 45 minutes or until tests done in your oven. Let cool in pan 15 minutes, turn out and let cool completely.

Makes 1 loaf.

  1. Oh wow,, roasted banana bread,, yum soooo good,, wish the computer had a smelling button!(well maybe not!) but for this instance a big YES PLEASE!

  2. I make banana bread several times a month. It's my husbands favorite weekend treat. I have never heard of roasting the bananas first though. I find this fascinating. Must try.

  3. This sounds wonderful. The roasting has to intensify the banana flavor. Great idea!

  4. I enjoyed reading your post about the roasted bananas, and the roasted banana bread.
    As far as roasting the bananas to enjoy eating it like that, the trick is to split the skin on the top side all the way down to the end, and sprinkle the brown sugar...and follow through the recipe for roasting.

    What a genius idea to pan roast the bananas for the banana bread. I could only imagine the intentse flavor and the aroma. Love the walnut topping, as well!
    Thanks for sharing, Melynda

  5. I have never roasted a banana before, either in an oven or in a pan! Looks and sounds really nice! This is a wonderful way of getting all the flavours and delicious smell of the bananas! Thank you for sharing, Melynda!
