Banana Bread

Finally, another recipe! It’s tempting to believe this is gonna be some kind of cake – no, it actually isn’t, I wouldn’t want to have this for tea. But this banana bread was with me at races and bike tours, it’s baked energy and that’s it. Oh yeah, last time I made it it even tasted halfway decent, but you shouldn’t bet on that. Depending on how the bananas are the result may be anything between sponge cake and dwarf bread…


  • 4 bananas, mashed (The recipe said they should be a bit overripe. At my best go they were almost green. It might all be chance and nothing else.)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 75g sugar + 1 pack. vanilla sugar + a pinch of salt
  • 150g wheat flour + 150g full grain wheat flour (don’t skip this because of “Yuck, too healthy” – it really improves the taste!) + 1 pack. baking powder
  • 100g walnuts, chopped

Mix all liquid components, then add the flour mix, at the very and add the walnuts. Put inside a maximum sized loaf pan (it will be huge!) and bake 45 min at 180°C.

Stored cool and dry it will persist quite a while and can be taken e.g. on one-week bike rides (if the weather is sufficiently bad)…

Ride eternal, shiny and chrome!

I had a stormy day at Xterra in Zeulenroda. I barely finished, but I finished second (and also last), isn’t this great? Read the German version for details.
