Hello everyone, my brother is visiting from the US these days, so I’m taking the opportunity to make some of his favorites.

He loves banana bread and “over there” they usually eat it with butter and a sprinkling of sugar. I happen to love banana bread too, and here is my recipe.

Banana bread (1 loaf)

  • 4  1/2 oz. (125 g) pecans
  • 3/4 cup (170 g) butter
  • 1  1/4 cup (285 g) regular sugar
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3  1/2 oz. (100 g) chocolate chips
  • 3  1/3 cups (420 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1  1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon (250 ml) sour cream

Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Grease and flour a loaf pan.

Spread the pecans in a single layer on a baking tray and toast in the oven for 6 minutes. Leave to cool and then chop quite finely.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for about one hour.

A skewer inserted in the center should come out clean.
