  • 2 1/2 cups of fine breadcrumbs or cake flour (or a mixture of both)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of pureed ripe bananas 3-4 large, plus banana slices for baking, optional
  • 1 c sugar plus 3 Tbsp separated
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c oil
  • 1/2 c european style plain yogurt


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Grease a 9in loaf pan with butter or oil, or just use a flour-base baking spray - you can also line the bottom with parchment paper as it makes it easier to remove the cake from the pan later
  • Add 3 Tbsp of sugar to the bottom of coated pan, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and arrange some banana slices, set aside
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda, and the cinnamon and set aside
  • In another bowl, combine the oil and yogurt, set aside
  • In a medium bowl, combine the sugar and the bananas, and mix together until combined, using a hand mixer in medium speed
  • Then add the eggs one by one, and keep mixing
  • Add the vanilla, mix to combine
  • Add a third of the dry ingredients, and mix, then add half of the wet ingredients. Repeat until all dry and wet ingredients have been incorporated
  • Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan, and bake bake until a cake tester/toothpick inserted to the middle comes out lightly crumbly to clean (about 35-40 mins)
  • Move the pan to a cooling rack and let it cool for about 10 mins, then remove the banana bread from the pan and let it cool in the rack

Bom Apetite!
