Baking and cooking is the norm now, well what else can you do when it is lockdown and rainy outside? Cook, bake, read, exercise, yoga, stretch, eat, sleep, work, dance, listen to music, listen to audio books, watch Samsara online, sooo much to do but baking is fun.
Yesterday I made my lovely plantain bread I make every year. Basically. It is very simple to make and you dont need too many ingredients. I say that this recipe suits the season well and the upcoming Christmas time.
I have taken the recipe from the internet but I have changed it and always go for my version.
And my version looks like this:
- 2 cups all purpose flour/self raising flour
- 1 very ripe plantain
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- ¼ cup almond milk + 1 tsp lime juice
- ¼ cup coconut oil melted
- 3 tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- Preheat your oven to 350°F
- Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan and set it aside
- In a bowl, combine the all flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a cup, add almond milk and lime juice to curdle.
- In a separate bowl, smash the ripe plantain until it is pretty smooth, then add in the almond milk and lime juice mixture, sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla. Whisk until the wet mixture is combined.
- Create a well in the bowl with the flour mixture, and pour in the liquid mixture and mix until it is just combined. Do not over mix!
- Pour the plantain bread/cake batter into the prepared loaf pan, and bake in the preheated oven for 50- 55 minutes.
- Allow the plantain bread/cake to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, remove from the pan and cool for another 15 minutes, then serve.
The bread goes well with chai latte, chai tea, my perfect Atole De Avena, a mexican oatmeal drink. I will share the recipe as well.
This is an old picture of a previous plantain bread I made last year. This recipe that I have changed and made it after my taste is easy, simple and quite healthy if you change the flour to maybe a more organic or less manipulated.
I will update more picture on this post later, Im going to make another batch to have at home. Easy, not too bad and delicious.
One of my friends loved it, she was munching it all and I’m so glad it was appreciated.
This is how I had my plantain bread earlier. With coconut ice cream. It is delicious. The trick to add a lot of vanilla when making the bread. I don’t know but it just makes all the aromas combined well and yeah creates a great taste.
