Self-Raising Flour Banana Bread (vegan)

The best vegan banana bread – soft & light using simple ingredients (no egg substitutes or vegan butter). This is a batter you can mix together by hand so it’s really easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 220-240 g (2 large/3 medium) overripe bananas
  • 125 g (1/2 cup packed) light brown sugar
  • 90 g (1/3 cup) vegetable oil
  • 60 g (1/4 cup) water
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon , optional
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 240 g (2 cups) white self-raising flour (see notes for substitute)
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) non-fan / 160°C (320°F) fan. Line a 2lb loaf tin with a sling of baking paper and set aside.

To make with a hand blender:

Combine the peeled bananas, sugar, oil, water, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Use a hand blender to blitz together until smooth. Stir in the flour and bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) until just combined.

220-240 g (2 large/3 medium) overripe bananas, 125 g (1/2 cup packed) light brown sugar, 90 g (1/3 cup) vegetable oil, 60 g (1/4 cup) water, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp salt

Scrape the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 50-70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the bread comes out clean. Cover the top of the loaf with foil halfway through baking if it looks like it’s browning too much.

240 g (2 cups) white self-raising flour (see notes for substitute), 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

To make without a hand blender:

Peel the bananas and place onto a plate. Mash with the back of a fork until as smooth as possible then scrape into a medium bowl.

220-240 g (2 large/3 medium) overripe bananas, 125 g (1/2 cup packed) light brown sugar, 90 g (1/3 cup) vegetable oil, 60 g (1/4 cup) water, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp salt

Stir in the sugar, oil, water, cinnamon and salt until smooth. Then stir in the flour and bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) until just combined.

Scrape the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 50-70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the bread comes out clean. Cover the top of the loaf with foil halfway through baking if it looks like it’s browning too much.

240 g (2 cups) white self-raising flour (see notes for substitute), 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Cool & store:

Allow the loaf to cool in the tin for 10 minutes then tip out and leave to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
If you don’t have self-raising flour: combine 228g plain white flour with 1 tbsp baking powder.

For a special topping: sprinkle chopped walnuts and demerara sugar (raw cane sugar) over the top of the loaf before baking.

Banana Bread Recipe Self Rising Flour Brown Sugar

The first thing is to heat oven and grab yourself a large mixing bowl, an electric mixer, and your ingredients.

Add the wet ingredients to the mixing bowl, which are the light brown sugar, large eggs, vanilla and butter that is softened to room temperature. Use an electric hand mixer on the high speed setting to combine everything together until smooth.

There is no need to over-mix, just until it is combined works perfectly.

Cook’s Note: You can also use melted butter in this recipe if you don’t have really soft room temperature butter. I have personally tested making banana both ways and they both work the same.

Next, add the dry ingredients, which are the couple cups self rising flour. Using your hand mixer, combine flour with the wet mixture.

Can I make this banana bread without baking soda?

Out of baking soda and stuck at home? Yes, you can make this banana bread without baking soda.  You have a couple of options.

If your flour is self rising, simply omit the baking soda and baking powder called for in this recipe and you are good to go.

However, if you have all purpose or plain flour, we have a few tricks up our sleeve.  Baking powder contains the same ingredients (and more) as baking soda.  So, if you have baking powder but no baking soda, simply triple the baking powder called for in this recipe.  Baking powder is a bit salty, so you should leave out the salt listed in these ingredients.

Don’t have any baking powder either?  This is a bit trickier as we don’t have the leaving agents.  We will turn to the egg whites and some extra salt to do the job. Moreover, Separate the eggs called for in the ingredients, and add one extra egg white only.  Also double the salt.So, hip the egg whites very well, and fold them into the batter at the end to give it a lighter texture.  The extra egg whites and salt will get you through in a pinch.

I designed this recipe to be versatile, because I know sometimes you may only have a few extra bananas lying around.

For this recipe, you can use either 3 medium to large bananas or 2 medium to large bananas + 3/4 cup of applesauce.
