Banana-Apple Bread


Weekend = Baking. That is a statement. This action cannot be changed, left out, postponed. Except if I travel somewhere. Travel is number one. Then comes baking. So as I already mentioned I changed lifestyle to vegan. I am a very happy vegan who is even happier when I get to cheat from time to time and eat some crepes, like I did yesterday. I know real vegans don't cheat, they are perfect...But I didn't go vegan because of philosophy, I don't eat meat and dairy because my body doesn't tolerate it. That is a slight difference. 

But today is Saturday and I am home with my family. No guests are coming so it is entirely up to me what I choose to make as a dessert today! And to stick to a healthy diet I chose banana bread! I have been dying to make it for years. But no one ever said yes to my proposal to make banana bread so I simply acknowledged that it has to wait. Until today! Because I found 2 ripe bananas in the kitchen and that just called for a banana bread! :)

It is not entirely vegan. It has 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon of honey. Oh and butter. But as a totally weird vegan, I don't consider butter as cheating. Since it's fat, it's not protein, right? 
The result was utterly surprising! I didn't really think that it will be so delicious...But it is! It is moist, it smells and tastes like banana with a hint of apple. The shredded apples give it such a nice texture. It is sweet, yet not overly sweet. Cinnamon butter will go so well with it. I recommend you highly to make this bread TODAY :) It is so simple and easy and healthy!

Banana- Apple Bread

2 ripe bananas
2 smaller apples - peeled and shredded
2 eggs
110 grams butter
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons cane sugar
vanilla
1 cup cake flour
2/3 cup whole wheat spelt flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup nuts - I used peanuts
cinnamon
nutmeg

Toast the nuts in a pan then let them cool. Mash the bananas together. Beat the eggs and add them to the melted butter. Add the butter mixture to the mashed bananas and mash them again. Add the shredded apples to the mix and sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg generously on it. Add the honey and sugar. Mix it together. In another bowl mix the flour, baking soda and baking powder together. Add the flour mix to the wet ingredients. Add the nuts. Grease a bread pan and pour the bread mixture in it. Bake it for 55 minutes on 170C.

  3. What a great thing to do with overly ripe bananas and apples! I substituted half of the butter for applesauce..about 3.5Tablespoons. Turned out dense and moist. Very delicious! Thank you!

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB.
