does it matter if my bananas are ripe or not?
For this recipe, we do highly recommend that you use ripe bananas. They will work better, and the cake will be a little sweeter.
Ripe bananas have more time to create that delicious fruit sugar we all love. They will taste a lot sweeter when paired with butter and flour, than unripe bananas.
For this recipe, we recommend using bananas that have gone brown, or are more than 50% brown.
The bread will be a little bit more dense like a brownie, and less like a cake texture. The cake texture comes when your bananas are still a little too fresh.
how could i make this recipe, a little more healthy?
Even though this has bananas in it, it’s not exactly the most healthy dessert. If you are looking for a healthier and more simple version of the recipe, here is what we recommend;
- Replace the sour cream with plain Greek yogurt
- Replace the flour with whole wheat flour
- Use 1/2 cup honey and 1 cup sugar instead of 1 1/2 cups sugar
It’s quick, simple, and delicious, even with just a few of these changes.
