Banana bread 

Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour: 220g
  • Granulated sugar: 1 cup 200g
  • Baking soda: 1 tsp 
  • Salt: 1/2 tsp 
  • Large eggs: 2 large
  • Mashed bananas: take 4 medium overripe bananas 
  • Vegetable oil: 125 ml
  • Vanilla: 1 tsp

Recipe

Take a 9x5” pan and grease it. Preheat your oven to 325F. Combine the salt, baking soda, sugar, and flour in a large bowl and whisk them together. Take another bowl and mix oil, mashed bananas, vanilla, and eggs. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Now pour this batter into the greased pan and bake for about an hour. You can use a toothpick to check the center before sixty minutes to see if it comes out clean. 

French Spiced Bread

Ingredients

  • Unsalted butter: 2 tablespoons 
  • Whole diamonds: 1/2 cup 
  • Homemade or packaged candied orange peel: 1/2 cup 
  • Dried apricots: 1/2 cup 
  • Dried plums: 1/2 cup 
  • Honey: 2 cups 
  • Whole milk: 1-1/4 cups
  • Kosher salt: 2 teaspoons 
  • Cinnamon sticks: 6
  • Star anise pods: 3
  • All-purpose flour: 3 cups
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon 
  • Spice mix: 1 small packet
  • Baking soda: 2 teaspoons 
  • Eggs: 2

Recipe

Use melted butter to grease two loaf pans—Preheat oven to 325°F. Take the almonds and toast them on a rimmed baking sheet. Wait until they are golden brown: chop plums, apricots, zest, and toasted almonds. Remember not to chop them finely. Put all the coarsely chopped ingredients into a bowl.

Bring star anise, cinnamon, salt, milk, and honey to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk baking soda, spice mix, baking powder, and flour. Use a fine-mesh sieve to strain honey into the dry ingredients. Whisk spice mix, baking powder, flour, and baking soda in a bowl.  Pour in the eggs and whisk to mix them thoroughly. Use a spatula to fold in the zest mixture.

Take prepared pans and divide the dough between the two pans. Fill each of these around three-quarters full. Wait until the bread’s top becomes golden brown. Bake it for at least forty minutes before taking the pan out. Cool it for ten minutes before removing the bread from the pan. It tastes and looks great. 

Gingerbread Loaf

Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour: 3 1/2 cups
  • Baking soda: 2 1/4 teaspoons 
  • Coarse salt: 3/4 teaspoon 
  • Ground cinnamon: 1 1/2 teaspoons 
  • Ground allspice: 3/4 teaspoon 
  • Unsalted butter: 1-1/2 sticks
  • Ground cloves: 1/4 teaspoon

  • Eggs: 3

  • Buttermilk: 1-1/2 cups
  • Candied ginger slices: 2 ounces 

Recipe

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Take bread loaf pans or use a baking sheet. Take salt, baking soda, spices, and flour and whisk together. On medium heat, beat butter with a mixer until creamy and pale, around 3 minutes.  Add brown sugar and whisk until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add molasses and vanilla slowly, and reduce the speed to add buttermilk gradually. Now add the flour mixture slowly. Beat well until all is mixed.

Divide the batter among pans and make sure you spread the batter evenly. Use candied ginger to sprinkle it on top. Bake for fifty minutes and check it with a toothpick. Place the loaves on a wire rack and let it cool completely.
