1 and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
One cup white sugar
1/2 cup or 1/3 cup brown sugar (it can be either amount)
One stick or half cup of unsalted butter
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs at room temperature (you can put them in a bowl of tap water to bring them to room temperature)
2-3 mashed, ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/3 cup of milk at room temperature
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
First, oil and flour a bundt or a tube pan, and turn the oven on at 350 0r 175, depending on the kind of oven you have. Now, sift all the dry ingredients. Next, mix eggs, butter, oil and the two kinds of sugar in a bowl. Add the flour mixture, beat. Add mashed bananas and vanilla essence. Finally, add the milk and beat. If you’d like, you can also stir walnuts in the batter. Do not beat too much as you are introducing a lot of air into the batter. Bake for about an hour. Check the bread with a tooth pick or a butter knife. If it comes out dry, you are in pretty good shape.
If you don’t have brown sugar, you can use extra white sugar. Brown sugar brings a richness to the flavor of the bread.
