Prep Time: 20 min
Bake Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 5 minutes
Yield : One Loaf


  • 3 over ripe Bananas / dark speckled bananas are yield a moist bread than fresh banana. I always buy fresh bananas and leave them in the fruits basket for 2 days until they over ripe and have dark speckles
  • 1/3 Cup Melted Butter
  • 3/4 Cup powdered granulated white Sugar
  • 1/4 yogurt / curd / Plain natural yogurt
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 Cup All purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon powder / ground cinnamon
  • a pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1 Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 Cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate chips


1. Preheat Oven to 180C. Grease one loaf pan with butter and set aside
2. In a mixing bowl mash 3 banana. You can use potato masher to mash banana. Then Add melted butter and sugar and mix everything together with a spatula or wooden spoon until sugar dissolves
3. Add 1/4 cup yogurt and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and mix everything together
4. In a separate bowl add all purpose flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and salt and mix
5. Add dry ingredients to the wet mixture and mix until there are no lumps
6. Add 1 Teaspoon all purpose flour to the walnuts and chocolate chips and fold in the nuts and chips in the cake batter. Adding all purpose flour prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the cake while baking
7. Pour the content into the prepared loaf pan and bake at 180C for 45 minutes
8. Cool in the pan for 5min, then invert the bread on the wire rack and cool completely
8. Make slices and serve with jam or butter or just plain with Tea / Coffee


  1. Powered or granulated sugar? It list both.

    1. Hi Kat , Sorry for the delayed response. I used granulated white sugar. I added the granulated white sugar in a food processor and powdered it finely. Hope this helps.
