Banana Walnut Loaf

I was reading some online news feed the other day and one headline caught my eyes "Recipe: Banana loaf from Mojo Cafe .... the Mojo Cafe in Wellington is the best in town ... and usually sold out in the afternoon"
As it has given a recipe to try out so I got to try it out.

Simple in ingredients and easy to make too and indeed I love it.

Banana Walnut Loaf

300g ripe bananas
160g caster sugar *
3 large eggs
250g self rising flour
10g bicarbonate soda
120ml canola oil
160ml fresh milk
50g - 80g walnuts (roughly chopped)


Preheat oven to 180°celcius.
Line the bottom of loaf pan with grease proof paper and grease the sides of the pan. Set aside.

Add the banana and sugar into the food processor and puree till smooth.  

Add in the eggs, oil and milk and pulse till well combined. 

Sieve the flour and bicarbonate soda.  Fold the flour mixture and walnuts into the banana puree mixture till all well combined.

Pour into the loaf tin.
Bake for 45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.

* Original recipe calls for 270g sugar which I believe is way too sweet! 
160g is just perfect to my taste when using ripe bananas.
