Banana Cardamom Bread

We all have bananas lying around the kitchen which have passed the eating stage and no one wants to eat those mushy bananas. This recipe is perfect for those extra bananas. Addition of cardamom makes it very welcoming to your taste buds. Use of whole wheat flour makes it a healthier option as well.


Eggs                                      2 at room temp
Butter                                    3/4 cup at room temp
Bananas                                 2 mashed
All purpose flour                    1 cup
Whole wheat flour                 1 cup
Brown Sugar                         1 cup
Vanilla Essence                      1 tsp
Cardamom powder                1 tsp
Baking powder                      1 tsp
Baking soda                          1 tsp
Salt                                       1 pinch


  1. Preheat the oven at 325 C.
  2. Cream Butter and sugar till pale and fluffy. 
  3. Add eggs one by one and beat well.
  4. Add mashed bananas and mix.
  5. In a separate bowl sift flours, cardamom, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  6. Add flour mixture to the butter/egg mixture. Mix until all of the flour is incorporated.
  7. Pour in a baking pan and bake for almost 60-70 mins.
  8. Test by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the bread. It should come out clean.

Add a cup of chopped nuts like almonds or walnuts after incorporating flour for a crunchy and rich taste.
