Banana yogurt bread

Pin It Now!

Baking at home does give me pleasure, I always looking forward to the new project that I wrote as baking wish list. I like to express my self, doing some try-out to the research that I have wished and trying a new thing to just make me even more confident. To me, it all fun, cooking and baking at home.

Another lovely treat for the tea/coffee today, I bake banana yogurt bread with some bitter sweet dark chocolate added. One thing I like yogurt adding to the cake/bread it gives extra moist to it, every bite is divine, melt in a mouth, its really taste so good!




I was remember some years ago, my husband’s cousin "M" ever said me if the fresh banana has over ripe and you feel that it is not nice to eat anymore, do not throwing away as you could make it as your cake/bread for tea/coffee companion, it definitely gives you the best treat, it creates best aroma and flavor, heavenly

In my heart, eh this is cool...




At that time, I don’t even bother doing my own baking, since every one in the family have given me a picture of how interesting doing our own home-baking, in the end I realized that I have to put my effort and vibrant my spirit up.

Now on, every my home-baking, I feel so precious, especially seeing my little man call it for his tea :)

With a rubber spatula, fold the batter and making sure it's all incorporated.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for about 50 minutes, or until a cake tester placed in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Let it rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.

Remove from the pan and cool it completely once again.
