Banana bread with Aronia berries


  • 3 bananas (very ripe)
  • 115g butter (room temperature)
  • 150g brown sugar
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 190g white flour (sieved)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 120g seed mix (sunflower, pumpkin, flax etc)
  • 80g dehydrated Aronia berries

Mod de preparare

1. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
2. Prepare a bread loaf tray with baking paper (wet it before, in order to better take the shape of the tray).
3. Lightly roast the seeds in a skillet, continuously stirring so they won’t burn. When golden, immediately remove them from the skillet.
4. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar (using a mixer).
5. Mash the bananas with a fork until pureed, then add them to the batter. Keep stirring.
6. Add the eggs and the vanilla extract, mixing through.
7. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and Himalayan salt. Add the dry ingredients to the batter and stir, but avoid over mixing.
8. Add seeds and Aronia fruits. Mix lightly.
9. Pour the batter in the prepared tray. Bake for 55-60 minutes. Test with a toothpick to see if it is baked: insert the toothpick in the cake, and, if comes out dry, then the cake is ready.
10. Take the cake out of the oven, let it rest for 10 minutes, then let it cool.
11. Enjoy!
