<p>Sweet, creamy, fruity, delicious, great for breakfast or dessert. Yup, this banana bread covers it all. My mum is actually the master of banana cakes so the inspiration for this dish came from her. The most important thing with banana bread is that you just need to make it moist (yes, we hate to use that word while describing food as well, but hey, it describes it perfectly :) and in order to do that, you need a great recipe and some tricks up your sleeve, like a recipe for creamy white chocolate and cream cheese frosting, that will create a beautiful sweet-sour combo that is just great in this recipe. If you don't have the time to prepare it, bake it and add the frosting, don't worry, you can prepare or even bake it one day ahead and finish it the next time. As simple and as delicious as that. Enjoy.</p>
In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas and milk with an immersion blender until completely smooth.
The riper your bananas, the more banana flavor the bread will have.
prepare banana bread
Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F. In a large bowl (or in a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment) beat the eggs, sugar and floral honey. Add the mashed bananas and milk, baking powder and seeds from one vanilla bean. Then, still stirring, begin to slowly incorporate the flour. The banana bread mixture should be smooth and shiny.
bake the banana bread
Lightly grease a loaf pan (20x12cm / 8x5 inch) and line with baking paper. Pour in the prepared banana bread mixture and bake for about 50 minutes. Cool in the loaf pan for about 5 - 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool.
white chocolate and cream cheese frosting
Melt the white chocolate and stir in the cream cheese. Add the milk and combine well to get a smooth frosting. Spread the frosting on the cooled banana bread.. Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, then serve. Enjoy.
