Whole wheat banana bread with yogurt

5 Apr

I’ve heard of making quick breads with buttermilk, but what I had in the fridge was a big tub of plain yogurt. It made it so moist! I tried it the next time with lait caillé and was equally pleased.

2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (3 to 4 medium)
1/2 cup plain yogurt or lait caillé
2  cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Mix sugar and oil in large bowl. Stir in eggs until well blended. Add bananas and yogurt. Beat until smooth. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt , cinnamon and nutmeg just until moistened.

Pour into a large loaf pan (9x5x3 inches). Bake in preheated oven 350° for about 1 1/4 hours, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans and place top side up on wire rack. Cool completely, about two hours, before slicing.

Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 days.
