I tried banana bread for the first time when moved to the US and I was amazed with its moist, sweet, cake-like texture. Easy to make, cheap and good for you. My Argentinean twist to this American classic is to serve it with dulce de leche spread ...yummy! Here is my recipe:
Ingredients - Serves 12
1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4 cup sugar
4 very ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and powder, salt. In a large bowl cream together eggs and sugar. Stir in mashed bananas, vanilla, and oil. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Bake for about 1 hour.

Tips: You can add 1/2 of nuts or raisin to the batter for an extra crunch and aroma. Can be served with a chocolate bath or, like I said, dulce de leche spread.
