If you went to a bunch of different grocery stores and couldn’t find any yeast, what would you do? Imagine all yeasts were gone! You don’t need to worry because today you’ll learn a fantastic trick. let’s make a yummy banana bread with no yeast at all.

It uses simple ingredients and it is delicious. When you make a loaf of this banana bread it does not last one day in your house. It is gone just slowly throughout the day and the whole thing disappears. You will most probably like this recipe because it’s not wasteful.

If you have fresh fruits in the house, you know sometimes it goes bad quickly. Another reason for loving banana bread is that you get to use old bananas that are going to turn brown.

When they start looking like this, there are only two options left: 1. chop them up and freeze them so you can throw them into a smoothie later on, or 2. make a loaf of banana bread and that is exactly what we’re going to do today.

Instructions

Step 1

Add your flour salt and baking soda and cinnamon in a medium bowl then whisk together until well combined. Once that’s well combined, set it aside.

Step 2

Grab a big mixing bowl. Now in the big mixing bowl, you should cream together your butter and sugar. add ¾ cup of sugar and half a cup of butter to the bowl. Then cream them together until it’s light and fluffy. (you can use an electric hand mixer to make things a little bit easier. put it on a medium speed!) next up add the eggs one at a time and mix again until well combined.

Step 3

Now it’s time to mash some bananas in another bowl. (Peel the bananas and you can use a potato masher to mash up your bananas and they will mash pretty easily because ripe bananas are soft.)
once the bananas are all mashed you should add vanilla extract and Kalleh fresh yogurt and mash them up one more time, mix them around. Now that all of your mixtures are ready you should add your dry ingredient (flour) with your banana and the butter.
After you mix them well you will have a nice thick banana bread batter. Before you pour it into the pan to bake add half a cup of chopped nuts of course you can put a few more if you want.

Step 4

Use a spatula or a big wooden spoon fold your chopped nuts into the batter and if you’ve never folded before it’s really easy you should take your spatula and you should go underneath all the batter and pull it over the top and turn under, over, turn. Do this so your batter stays nice, airy and fluffy. Just keep folding until all the nuts are mixed in.

Step 5

Pour the batter into a loaf pan. (I used a 9 ×5 and it’s pretty tall) you can use parchment paper but I just grease the loaf pan and pour in all the batter.

Step 6

Banana bread is ready to bake. Heat your oven to 350 °F (177°C) and bake your bread low for an hour and ten minutes.

Cooking Notes

Alternate adding – it means that you should start with the dry ingredient (flour) add a little bit and mix it up with the butter and then add some banana, mix it up. Add some more flour and mix it up, again add some more banana and mix it up, just alternate.

After pouring the batter into the loaf pan smooth it out a little gently because you shouldn’t decompress all the nice air.
