Orange Spice Banana Bread

I don’t know how long it has been since I have posted a recipe here on daxiang but here is a quick bread recipe that I modified to include some seasonal spices and ingredients (adapted from this recipe from Running With Spoons).

Yields: 1 loaf

1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground ginger
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
zest of 1 orange
½ tsp. sea salt

2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 large, ripe banana
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ cup maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and butter your loaf pan.
2) Mix dry ingredients in a big bowl and stir to blend evenly.
3) Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
4) Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients, stir to combine.
5) Once it is mixed in well, pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for 60 mins.
