Let me now proceed to describe the ingredients and method of the recipe.
We will definitely be using ripe bananas here because the unripe ones are extremely sour and are not suitable for baking. Of course, there is a different degree of ripeness of bananas.
If you are using an extremely overripe bananas, those that already have black spots formed, you can definitely just add them. However, if you are using just ripe bananas like me, I would suggest you adding a couple more tablespoons of sugar to compensate for the lack of sweetness from the bananas. In addition, you will also want to add more sugar if you are using slightly unripe bananas or if your bananas taste sour. About a couple of tablespoons or more.
In addition, you can feel free to add spices. These spices include those that provide a hardy flavour, such as nutmeg, cinnamon and even cardamom. Personally for me, I only added cinnamon. Of course, you can omit it totally but I feel that the harmonious pairing between cinnamon and banana is not to be missed. It should only be missed by your taste buds!
Next up, you would want to ensure that your ingredients are all at room temperature especially the melted butter, eggs and milk. This is to ensure that the ingredients are able to mix optimally well, and there are less hiccups along the way. Potential problems would include the unwanted event of scrambling your eggs when your melted butter has not been cooled to room temperature!
Other modifications you can make to the recipe include the addition of nuts and chocolate chips. You can feel free to add chocolate chips, or nuts such as walnuts ( I feel that walnuts go well with bread ). Of course, if you are using nuts, please be careful not to over roast them in the oven to the point where they are burnt and ruin the pleasant taste of the bananas. I would suggest using bigger chunks ( do not use items such as thinly sliced almonds ). If you notice that there is too much browning, reduce the temperature to 160 degrees C at about the 20 or 30 minute mark.
For the method, there’s not much to elaborate on.
