Louis Remolde: The Single Baker




Usually everything King Arthur Post I immediately want to jump into kitchen and start cracking eggs. This Banana was just what I needed for a cold winter morning with a good cup of coffee.The whole wheat flour adds a very nice hardiness and nutty flavor; and lets face it much healthier then all-purpose flour. I also added dark chocolate chunks and sliced almonds.

I did make a few changes to the OG recipe which can be found at One of the amazing things King Arthur does is they also give you different variations and substitutions ideas.


4-5 ripe Bananas about 2 cups

1/2 cup Vegetable oil

1 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspooon nutmeg

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

1/2 cup sliced almonds


Preheat oven 350° F. Grease a 9″ x5″or a 4″ x 11 1/2″ loaf pan.

In a large bowl, stir together the mashed bananas, oil, sugar,eggs, and vanilla.

Mix flours baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

In a small bowl toss the chocolate chunks and almond with a teaspoon of All-Purpose flour; this will hold them in place while baking and not sink to the bottom. 

 Now mix the dry with the wet ingredients; mix thoroughly. Add Nuts and chocolate; Scoop the batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle some granulated sugar and cinnamonon on top.

Bake the bread for 60 -70 minutes. The toothpick test works best. Poke a toothpick into center; if clean its finished ; batter on the toothpick ,it needs more time.

Cool in pan for 15 minutes.then loosen the edges and turn out to cool completely.this bread will last serveral days , and can be frozen!

I hope you love this recipe and add your flare to it as well happy baking !!!!!!!
