Total Time : 1 Hr 0 Min


Serves : 8
  • 2 nos bananas

  • 1.5 cups all purpose flour

  • 3/4 cups caster sugar

  • 1/2 cups melted butter

  • 2 nos eggs

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 3-4 drop vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 3/4 cups chopped hazelnuts

  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  • In a bowl, combine all your dry ingredients- flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and ground cinnamon. With a whisk, give it a good mix. Set aside.
  • With a fork, mash your ripened bananas very well, until you get a smooth, semi-liquid consistency. Don’t worry if there are some chunks left in it.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs.
  • Add the mashed bananas, vanilla extract and melted butter. Whisk well until it is all well-combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and with a spatula, fold in everything together until the batter is just about well-mixed and lump free. Do not over mix or your bread can come out tough!
  • Lastly, throw in your chopped hazelnuts/ walnuts and give the batter a final mix.
  • Transfer the batter into a greased Loaf baking tin.
  • Sprinkle the top with pumpkin seeds and bake at 180 degrees C for around 40 minutes, or until the toothpick inserted in it comes out clean.
  • Cool, slice and enjoy as a delicious snack or a dessert!
