Coffee Time // Banana Bread

The four ripe bananas in the kitchen had to finally be used and what better way to bake something? So the decision to bake a banana bread was made very quickly. It doesn’t need much effort and is whisked together in no time. Perfect to accompany a little bit of hygge – time while the it seems the winter is still here.

As the bananas were already very ripe, I did use only a very small addition of brown sugar as the bananas should be sweet enough themselves. I added cacao nibs for a nice chocolate note to the bread and a few walnuts on top. But feel free to add any ingredients like nuts, dried fruits or whatever you like in your banana bread. It’s good together with a nice cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon. But of course it could also be enjoyed for breakfast or after dinner.



  • 45g butter
  • 2 tbs. brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 180g spelt flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cardamom
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 2 tbs. cacao nibs
  • 5 walnuts (half ones)

How to:

  1. Whisk the butter together with the sugar. Then add the two eggs and beat with a hand whisk until a foamy consistency occurs.
  2. Add the flour, salt and spices to the mixtures and beat again lightly until a dough forms.
  3. Now add the bananas and whisk again. At last the cacao nibs are added to the mixture. Stir them in with a spoon.
  4. Fill the dough in a prepared loaf tin and place the walnuts halves centered on top of the dough.
  5. Heat the oven to 180°C and bake the banana bread for around 40 minutes. The top should be golden brown and there should be no dough left on a skewer when the cake is ready.
  6. Let it cool and enjoy!

Lots of love,
