Ramya's Recipe Series - Microwave Banana & Dry Fruits Bread - Eggless

I will be starting with a dessert/snack first! This is an Eggless Banana Bread (with optional dry fruits). I learnt this from a cousin, with few of my own additions/improvements. 

The main ingredients... 
  • Maida - 2 cups
  • Powdered Sugar - 2/3rd cup
  • Oil - 1/4th cup
  • Baking Soda- 1/4th tea spoon
  • Over-ripe Bananas - 2
Optional Ingredients:
  • Dry Fruits: Powdered walnuts, Almonds, Cashew - 1/2 cup, Raisins- 15
Method
  1. Pre-heat the microwave at 180C in the convection mode. 
  2. Sieve the maida, powdered sugar and baking soda. Mash the over ripe bananas and add them. Then add oil, powdered dry fruits,raisins and mix well. 
  3. Now, coat an aluminium tray with crystallized ghee. Add the mixture and bake in the microwave in the convection mode at 180C for 1 hour.
  4. After 1 hour, allow the bread to cool. Slice it and enjoy




Tips
  • Use over ripe bananas, it gives the best taste.
  • Banana can be substituted with grated apple
  • Sugar can be reduced to 1/2 cup if you prefer less sweet bread
  • For diabetics, sugar can be substituted with equal quantity of Sugar-Free/ Equal powder. Also, use apple instead of banana.
  • Powdered dry fruits add taste and flavor.
  • Coating the tray with crystallized ghee gives best result. If that is not available, butter can be used.
