Banana bread is something most people enjoy eating. It can be baked using so many different recipes (i.e. adding chocolate, caramel, fruits, etc.).
Not everyone knows how to make delicious tasting bread. It takes experience and skill to make it taste just right. Here’s what I’ve learned: The secret to making great tasting bread is having a classic recipe where you can add a few additional ingredients in to give it a twist.
Today, we’ll be exploring some additional items you can add to make your bread tastier. Let get started.
I’m sure you’ve eaten Nutella before and the taste is awesome…right? The next time you are baking banana bread, spread some Nutella on the entire loaf before serving. Make sure the bread has just come out of the oven when adding Nutella so the chocolate melts perfectly.
Here’s something else you can try: Add Nutella; then put the loaf in the oven for 10 minutes; this will allow for the flavors to mix even more.
Mix In Chocolate Chips
Everyone loves chocolate chips because most of us have been brought up eating them throughout our lives. When creating your next batch try adding mini chocolate chips with the ingredients before placing it in the oven. It’s different than the typical recipe; because you’re adding chocolate chips, it should be devoured in minutes. Remember, most people loves chocolate chips so your scoring brownie points by adding them into your banana bread recipe.
Add Other Fruits
This takes no more than a few additional minutes because all your doing is adding other fruits like pineapple and/or strawberries into the recipe. Cut these fruits while putting the regular ingredients into a bowl for preparation. After, simply mix them all together and bake until the bread is done. For the perfect taste, make sure you use fresh fruit, not artificial flavors.
You don’t have to add whip cream when baking banana bread, but it’s a great addition to have on the side.
Take it even one step further and provide more add-ons like strawberries, chocolate, caramel, etc. These are all great flavors with banana bread, and you’re providing people with several options.
There is absolutely little preparation time for this because add-ons can be purchased at the grocery store while you’re shopping for other ingredients.
However, if you’re experienced then you can create fresh add-ons from scratch by melting chocolate and/or caramel.
Use Coconut Oil
Most banana bread recipes prefer you use oil instead of butter to grease your pan even though oil has more fat per ounce. The problem with oil is it can make the banana bread heavier and wet. This ruins the presentation of the bread when on the table, pushing people away from trying it. We recommend you use coconut oil when preparing banana bread because of its characteristics. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature and is slow melting providing the richness often seen with butter. It keeps the weight steady and removes the wet, soggy look from the banana bread.
Coconut oil also has a great, tropical smell, adding to the presentation, and increasing people’s appetites. The cool thing about making this change is it takes seconds because you are simply switching the oil you use…that’s all.
