Morning

Me again. Haven't had breakfast yet, so thought would note down something to do with breakfast.
This is a Banana Bread that is relatively new on my menu. Its different from the one I used to make in Germany, so just in case my niece wants to try this one out too - believe me it tastes out of the world with Nutella! Haven't got a picture yet, will post as soon as I do. Here goes:

You need:

245 grms flour
150 grms sugar
1 full teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp soda bicarbonate
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
117 grms butter
4-5 ripe, brownish bananas, mashed
4-5 tablespoons of either coconut flakes, or crushed almonds

This is what you do with them:

Sieve together flour, baking powder, soda bicarbonate and salt. Set aside.
Combine banana mash with the beaten eggs. Mix well.
Add melted butter and vanilla essence. Mix well.
Add sugar sugar and cinnamon and nuts and mix well again.
Tip in the flour and lightly fold in. DO NOT over mix, batter should not be smooth. Its okay to see white flour bits in it.
Bake to a golden brown colour. Don't forget the grill for the browning part! Should take around 25- 30 mins. Do check in between though. Done!

See we have this urge to mix mix mix everything. Don't do that after adding the flour. Work off that urge before then. After the flour is in, just fold in. Tastes so good.. especially with Nutella Hani :)
