Best ever banana bread:
recipe from The Meat Free Monday Cookbook
- 9 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup superfine sugar
- 2 large or extra large eggs, at room temperature
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup ground rice flour
- 1/2 cup cornflour
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Superfine sugar (sometimes called baking sugar) is granulated sugar that has been ground into finer crystals than your regular granulated white sugar. Bakers like it because the smaller crystals cream very easily into butter, this leads to products that have a finer crumb and lighter texture when finished. You can make your own superfine sugar by by processing regular granulated sugar in the food processor until it is very fine. A minute or so is usually more than enough time to process the sugar, and the newly chopped crystals will work just as well in recipes as store-bought superfine sugar. I was to lazy to make my own so I just purchased it. Preheat oven 350°F.
My bread took only 1 hour to bake, so make sure to keep an eye on it.
