Banana Bread, Quick and Easy, No Oven Required

by honeybee

Scared to make your own bread? Don’t be. A novice chef, me, will show you an easy and delicious banana bread recipe. No oven required.

If your grandma was like mine, visits usually included homemade bread. One of my favorites was her banana bread. Some forty years on now, and I have never tried to make banana bread, until now.

Life in South East Asia is hot and tropical. Fresh bananas go from a little under ripe to near mush in short order. So necessity and not wanting to waste yummy bananas motivated me to try the unthinkable, making my own homemade banana bread. But, the clinker is, I don’t even have an oven.

Having a western style kitchen or a proper oven? Not something most of us have here. So I have found an easy and unintimidating way to make bread, even yummy banana bread with no oven.

What To Do With Those Overripe Bananas?

Mash Them!

Love bananas, but hot weather turns them from yummy to near runny in hours. What to do?

Make some banana bread.

If you have an oven, use a rectangular bread pan in a pre-heated oven, 375 degrees for 60 to 65 minutes.

 In the process of learning to make this banana bread without an oven, I also learned that baking powder can be substituted for baking soda. You just have to use more. Apparently, baking powder can be substituted for baking soda, but baking soda cannot be substituted for baking powder. Yes I was a bit confused too. But it works just fine.

Notes about using this electric cooker: Use too much water and it will boil over and it will take longer to cook. Several successful breads have been made thus far using this cooker filled only one third with water. I caution to monitor it closely so it does not boil over, or boil dry, however to date, has never happened filled one third full of water.

Feel free to add nuts or dried fruit, if so desired, to your recipe.

Mine turned out super moist and super delicious. No oven required.

 

 

Enjoy!

Great recipe for overripe bananas! I think I would like to use butter rather than oil, just for the flavor.
