I love Sundays.

I came home from an early morning mass and thought of trying a banana bread recipe which I copied several days ago. I found this site . It’s a Japanese array of cuisines and desserts where I  found several recipes using pancake mix. They had me at “sugar-free”. I love it.

You could try this, here’s how.


150 grams Pancake mix

3 ripe bananas

1 egg

50 ml milk

Use a fork to mash the banana until creamy. Add the egg and mix thoroughly with a wire whisk. Stir in the milk.

Add the pancake mix and roughly mix it with a spatula. Lightly grease the cake pan with a little oil or butter then pour in the batter. Bake for 40 minutes at 180 °C.

That simple, I adjusted the amount of ingredients though using 4 ripe bananas, 200 grams pancake mix and 100 ml evaporated milk. It turned out like this, a yummy sugar-free banana bread.


Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

It’s a lovely, sunny morning and mom urged me to go out and buy ingredients for Ginatan, that sweet Filipino dessert complete with sticky rice balls, sweet potato, taro and Saba bananas. She was craving for it but I was so lazy to go out this late because of the traffic. I baked her a simple banana bread instead, using four medium Lakatan bananas left over from yesterday. You don’t need a mixer to do this.


Here’s the recipe if you want to try it with just the basic ingredients:

3-4 ripe medium-sized bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. banana extract
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F) or 175 degree (C). With a large spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas. Then add the sugar, egg, vanilla and banana extract into the mixture. Sprinkle with baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix together. Add the flour last.

Bake for an hour. Let cool and serve.
