Step 4 : Loaf pan

  • Preheat your oven to 160 degrees.
  • Line your baking loaf pan with parchment paper. In case you don’t have it, lightly grease the pan with oil.
  • Pour batter into the pan. Cover the pan loosely with a foil tent to avoid burning at the top and bake it at 160 degrees for 90 minutes.
11 – Line your baking loaf pan with parchment paper. Pour batter into the pan.
12 – Even the top using a spatula or back of a spoon

Step 5 : Cooling down and slicing

  • Once done, take the pan out of the oven. Take out the loaf along with the parchment paper and transfer on to a wire rack for it to cool down completely (which usually takes about an hour) before slicing. It may crumble if cut immediately after taking out of the oven.

Tip 1: Cracks on the top only confirm that your Banana Bread is done.
Tip 2: Insert a toothpick/knife in the centre of the loaf. If it comes out with little or no crumbs, your Banana Bread is done.
Tip 3: We recommend refrigerating cooled down loaf further for about 1 hour before slicing for even thinner slices.

Ways to savour!

a.Toast in the toaster or oven, then top with natural chocolate-hazelnut butter (our favourite and most recommended way)
b. Warm up on skillet with oil/ butter or in the microwave for 15 seconds.
c. Eat as is
d. Suggested toppers : berry compote/ banana slices/ butter/ nut butter/ granola/ nuts/ seeds/ cacao nibs/ ice cream. berries. The list goes on.

  • Storage :
    Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Do not leave Banana Bread outside (on the kitchen top) as it is moist in nature and can not take high temperature and/ or humidity. It stays good for 3-5 days in the refrigerator.

Bon Appétit!
