How to select banana

  1. Buy fairly firm bananas with smooth skin. 
  2. There are three ways to see if a banana is ripe: it gives in slightly when you press, it gives off a fruity rather than sappy smell, and it can be plucked off the stem easily.
  3. Prefer bananas with the stem intact, as ones that are open at the eyes tend to attract flies and mosquitoes! In case you end up with an open one, remember to cut off the edge before consuming the fruit. 

How to select plain flour, maida

  1. Maida is available in various pack sizes from various brands. Choose the pack size that suits your needs. 
  2. Buy well-packed flour, pure white in colour, and smooth and powdery in texture. 
  3. The plain flour should be uniform in colour. 
  4. Avoid pale yellow-coloured flour. 
  5. It should also be free of worms and debris. 
  6. Also make sure that there is no evidence of moisture or lumps formation.
  7. Flour is sometimes labelled as pre-sifted. This means that the flour was sifted before packaging but it compacts during shipping and handling and therefore is no longer sifted by the time you get it home. So, always sift again before use.

How to select walnuts

  1. While walnuts are harvested in December, they are available year round. When purchasing whole walnuts that have not been shelled, choose those that feel heavy for their size. 
  2. Their shells should not be cracked, pierced or stained, as this is oftentimes a sign of mould development on the nutmeat, which renders it unsafe for consumption.
  3. Shelled walnuts are generally available in pre-packaged containers as well as bulk bins. 
  4. Just as with any other food that you may purchase in the bulk section, make sure that the bins containing the walnuts are covered and that the store has a good product turnover so as to ensure its maximal freshness. 
  5. Whether purchasing walnuts in bulk or in a packaged container, avoid those that look rubbery or shrivelled. 
  6. If it is possible to smell the walnuts, do so in order to ensure that they are not rancid.

  5. Add 3/4 cup plain flour (maida). Maida should be free of lumps. Sieve it if necessary.
  6. Add 3/4 tsp baking soda. This helps the bread to rise well. Use baking soda from a packet which is unopened or recently opened for best fluffy bread.  
  7. Add 1/4 cup milk.
  8. Beat with an electric beater on medium speed for 1 minute. At this stage the mixture should be very smooth.

FAQs for banana walnut bread

  1. Q. Can castor sugar be replaced? 
    A.
    Castor sugar is raw cane sugar with a fine free flowing texture and a light golden colour. It is different from standard sugar because of the light presence of molasses, which adds a delicious flavour and aroma. The texture of castor sugar lies somewhere between conventional table sugar and confectioner's sugar. The fine grind makes it ideal for many baking projects, since it dissolves easily and creams readily. So we recommend to use only castor sugar for this recipe. 
     
  2. Q. I don’t have electric beater. Can I use a whisk? 
    A. You can use a whisk and beat the banana mixture for 3 to 4 minutes and then after adding plain flour and other ingredients for another 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Q. My daughter doesn’t like walnuts. Is there a substitute to it? 
    A. Walnuts can be replaced with pecans, almonds or cashewnuts. 
  4. Q. I don’t have such a narrow tin. Can I use a broader tin?
    A. A narrow and long tin of 200 mm. (8”) is necessary to get the perfect shape of the bread. Also in this recipe, the rolled dough portions have to be placed close to each other. So it is a must.
  5. Q. How to store Banana Walnut Bread?
    A. Store it covered with a cling wrap at room temperature. It stays fresh for 2 days. Then you can refrigerate it for 4 to 5 days.
