Equipment

  • 1 9-inch loaf pan

Ingredients

  • cups cake flour 312.5g if using Bob's Red Mill gluten-free 1 to 1 baking flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup salted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • cups mashed over ripe bananas about 4 medium bananas
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 320°F/160°C (350°F/175°C for light metal pans) and grease or line a 9-inch loaf pan.
  • In a bowl, sift together cake flour, baking soda, and salt. If adding walnuts (or other mix-ins), take a couple spoonfuls of the flour mixture into a separate bowl and toss the walnuts with it. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together softened butter and sugar. Add the eggs, banana, yogurt, milk, and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir only until combined. Fold in the walnuts and pour into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes and test for doneness with a skewer (spaghetti works well too!). Let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
