Super Moist Banana Walnut Bread with a Browned Butter Glaze !!

I think the title says it all !! ...Anyways a detailed description about the same is worth it !!
Banana bread is such a comforting and homely bake ...This amazing loaf clears away the misconception that preparing tasty food (in this matter bakes) need lot of time n patience, as this hardly takes any time..
Moreover this recipe calls for super ripe bananas, lying over the counter untouched by u r family ...
The super moist , nutty walnut crunch , banana enriched bread with the added splash of browned butter glaze is a perfect accompainment for tea / coffee and also serves as a great after school snack ....

Ingredients : 
  • 1 1/2 cups : All purpose flour / Maida
  • 1 tsp : Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp : Salt
  • 1/2 Cup : Butter melted ( if using salted butter skip the salt )
  • 1 Cup : Granulated white sugar
  • 1 tsp : Vanilla extract
  • 2 Medium Sized : Over ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup : Sour cream
  • 1/2 cup : Chopped walnuts 
For the glaze : 

  • 1 tbsp : Butter
  • 1/4 cup : powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup : Brown sugar
  • 2 to 3 tbsp : Milk 
  • 1 tsp : Vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup : Mixed nuts chopped..( i used cashews, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds)

Prep work :

  •  In a bowl add the banana slices and mash them with a fork.
  •  Dust the walnuts with a tsp of flour ..this ensures even distribution instead of sinking at the bottom...
  • Line a loaf tin preferrably 9/5 inch pan with a parchment paper ...
  • Preheat oven at 180°c / 350°f ...

  • Sift the all purpose flour along with baking soda and salt ..
  • In a seperate bowl add the melted butter and sugar ..whisk until combined..
  • Add the eggs, vanilla extract and whisk again...
  • To this add the sifted flour mixture n mix well...
  • Lastly fold in the mashed bananas, sour cream and dusted walnuts...
  • Pour this batter into the lined loaf pan n even the top with the back of the spoon..
  • Bake it in a preheated oven at 180°c / 350°f for an hour or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean ...

  • My perfectly baked beauty !! Slice n serve as it is or for that added effect glaze it ...i promise you will not regret me !! 
For the glaze :  
  • In a small sauce pan add the butter and cook this on medium heat until dark brown but not burnt...

  • Next add the sugars n stir ...Now add the milk , vanilla extract n cook until dripping consistency..
  • It will thicken further more as it cools down so dripping consistency is perfect..
  • Cool this for few mins and pour over the Banana bread ...and sprinkle the chopped nuts all over ..
  • Leave this aside until the glaze sets ...

Once set slice n serve ...Yumminess to the core ...

Simple Banana bread with a makeover ...I'm lovin it !!
