Sultana Banana Bread in a Nut Loaf tin ~ 葡萄干香蕉面包


This banana bread baked in a cylindrical tin or a Nut Loaf tin has a soft, steamy texture and I especially like the top part of the bread which rose up like a mushroom.  It is crunchy and chewy with a slightly sticky centre.  Best to serve it warm with a slather of butter and some piping hot tea!






Sultana Banana Bread in a Nut Loaf tin ~  葡萄干香蕉面包

Ingredients 

  • 115 gm plain flour
  • 50 gm sultana, chopped coarsely
  • 40 gm caster sugar
  • 57 gm butter, melted and cooled
  • 227 gm over-ripe bananas, mashed with a fork.
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
Method
  1. Grease the tin generously with melted butter and dust it with flour.  Set aside.
  2. Combine and whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and sultanas.  Leave aside.
  3. Combine mashed  bananas, egg and melted butter and vanilla.
  4. Lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients till just combined.  (Mixture is thick and chunky, Do not overmix).  Overmixing will result in rubbery and tough bread.
  5. Scoop mixture into the prepared pan.  Mixture should only be half-filled.  Close the lid and bake, Upright in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 55 to 60 mins.
  6. Remove the tin form the oven, stand it upright to cool in the tin for about 5 to 10 mins.  Gently open the lid and test with a skewer till it comes out clean.  
  7. Gently shake the tin and loosen the bread and let it slide out and onto a wire rack to cool.

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
