Butterscotch Banana Bread (Step By Step Pics)

Are you in the holiday mood?? Am also in the full mood for holidays as kids are at  home for another week.Hope everyone had a blasting,joyful weekend and a memorable Christmas too.We too had a good Christmas,attended mass at Church.In the morning,we had paalappam and chicken stew with Kerala plum cake (fruit cake)and a glass of green grape wine.Lunch was tasty with chicken and beef delicacies.Last year,we were at home in India for Christmas and this year we are miles away.Anyways,lets quickly get back to today's post-Butterscotch Banana Bread.This bread is so soft and moist inside and has a crunchy cover outside that you would love.This bread has no strong flavors of banana(my kids don't favor the banana smell much and I was happy they liked this bread very much).The butterscotch chips really melts and is oozy kind once immediately out of oven.These chips adds the butter and sweetness to the bread.This can be a quick breakfast bread or serve as a after school snack for kids.I have used a combination of wheat flour & maida in the recipe but you can always use all purpose flour or maida alone for a lighter texture.Do give it a try !!

Recipe source here
wheat flour 1 cup + maida(all purpose flour) 1/4 cup
baking soda 1 tsp
baking powder 1/2 tsp
egg 1
light brown sugar  3/4 cup
bananas 3-4 or 1.5 cups mashed
unsalted butter,at room temp 6 tbsp
butterscotch chips 1 cup
vanilla extract 1 tsp
salt 1/4 tsp

  • Pre heat oven to 325 degrees F and prepare a bread pan(9*5*3)  lined with parchment paper at the bottom and butter the sides.Peel and mash the bananas using a fork.

  • Cream the butter and brown sugar in a bowl.Add the egg,whisk well.Add the vanilla extract.
  • In another bowl,sift the wheat flour,maida ,baking soda,baking powder and salt twice to incorporate the leavening agents well.

  • Add the flour in the wet ingredient mixture in two batches.Mix until combined.Add in the butterscotch chips.

  • Pour in the prepared pan and level the top.Bake in preheated oven for 65-75 minutes(mine got done in 70 minutes).
  • Cool on wire rack for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan.
Servings ~ a loaf

* If you use maida alone,it gives a lighter color.Using this combo,didn't alter the texture much and we loved it.
