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.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
