Hello Lovelies, I’m back with a new recipe and this time it’s a sweet one. Do you like to eat bananas? I don’t if I’m honest. Banana would not be my fruit of choice when im longing for some fresh fruits. But we always have them at home and I love to use them. We buy them ripe and than wait for the perfect moment and for us that’s when they are at the edge of getting too brown. Than they are perfect to be frozen for delicious nice cream (we always have bananas in the freezer), we use them for smoothies, Pancakes or for baking. Due to it’s natural sweetness it’s perfect for cakes and cookies and you can substitute part of the sugar.
Since my au-pair days in Canada I really love banana bread and I always eat it when we are on vacation in the US. Nowadays it’s also getting more common in Europe and you can buy it at more places. It’s not really a classical cake, but can also be eaten for breakfast. I made a version with Chai tea this time, added pecan nuts and lot of spices. It turned out delicious and I’m happy to share the recipe with you.
Here is the recipe:
You can just leave the banana bread natural if you don’t want to add the frosting, it will be delicious anyways. But the frosting with the Chai will add some extra yumminess. And if you haven’t noticed by now, I love blood oranges so much, I just had to add them as well. The banana bread is very moist, exactly how we like it (please don’t expect a fluffy cake, it’s really a typical banana bread texture).
The banana bread tastes perfect with a fresh cup of Masala Chai – of course! Did you know that Chai means tea, so we often say Tea Tea 🙂 – just a little information for you, not that it matters much.
