How To Cook & Bake With Bananas

Bananas

Bananas carry a host of valuable nutrition as they are a good source of potassium, vitamin B6 & vitamin B12 making them ideal to cook & bake with in the kitchen. Quick breads, muffins, layer cakes, pies & table side desserts become something lovely when bananas are added to the ingredient list. Maximizing peak flavor, particularly when baking with bananas, is as simple as allowing them ample time to stand at room temperature on the countertop until the banana peel becomes covered with dark spots. Learn how to cook & bake with this versatile fruit.

Everyday kitchen items can be used in order to prepare bananas for recipe applications. Gather a small bowl, a standard dinner fork & a measuring cup in order to complete the task. Here’s what you should know.

Time & patience are key for anything of worth & it’s certainly the case when baking with bananas. When they begin to cover with dark spots all over the peel surface, it is an indication that the sugars are beginning to break down in the fruit. This is your cue that a sweeter, more intense banana flavor is emerging right before you. Although most recipes will work perfectly fine with a firm, ripe banana, particularly if you’re in a bind, it is the over ripened jewels that deliver the best flavor.

When a recipe calls for a specific measurement of mashed, ripe banana, remove the peel & break it into smaller pieces over a bowl. Using a fork, begin to press & stir it to break it down.

Once the banana has been blended into chunks, stir it vigorously with the fork until it is smooth with small pieces distributed throughout the mixture. One medium-sized banana will yield approximately a 1/2 cup of mashed fruit.

Spoon the mashed banana into a measuring cup to be certain the correct amount is used in recipe applications. Use the banana in a timely manner as discoloration will begin to take place.
