Banana bread (v)

A vegan version of an old favourite, which strikes just the right balance between 'cake' and 'bread'

Lightly adapted from The 100 Best Vegan Baking Recipes (Kris Holechek)

Makes 1 loaf / 10 generous slice

Original post (and pictures) here


1 1/2 cups plain flour

2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 bananas (I used 1 medium and 1 large)
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp non-dairy milk (I used soy)

brown sugar, extra, to sprinkle on top (I didn't actually do this, but you could if you wanted extra sweetness)


1. Preheat oven to 180'C and prepare a loaf tin.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3. In a large bowl, mash the bananas and then add the oil, brown sugar, and milk. Stir to combine.

4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix to combine.

5. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes (mine took 38 minutes), until the bread is golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
