Some batches of this bread are as dark and as sticky and sweet as molasses. It's a great banana bread to make.

  • 6 Thai black bananas (or 3 large blck bananas)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking soda
  • dash salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup cooking oil
  • 1½ cup flour
  • ½ cup buttermilk (if you don't have access to butter-milk then mix some yoghurt with water to a light creamy consistency)

  1. Line two loaf pans with tin foil and heat oven to 135ºC (275F).
  2. In a large mixing bowl mash the bananas with the sugar and then mix with the salt and soda. Blend in the eggs, then, in order, the oil, flour and buttermilk.
  3. Pour batter into loaf pans and bake for about 2½ hours or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
