I simply love to explore different recipe using banana as one of the ingredients. Recently I made this hassle free Matcha Banana Loaf using the last two overripe banana that I had in the pantry together with my favourite matcha powder. Furthermore the steps are easy to follow as it requires only mix and stir before you pop the batter into the oven.

You can have the loaf on its own or lightly toast it then serve with a slab of butter or even ice-cream. Oh ya since this is a stir and mix method, do not tends to over mix the batter or else the texture will be tough and chewy.

Made another batch of Matcha Banana Loaf to test the recipe again after receiving some feedback from readers. Most of them face a common issue where their loaf turns out to be dense and gluey. Although I am not very sure what might be the caused but out of all the 3 tests using the recipe above mine turns out to be fine with well raise and airy texture.

So below are some tips which I hope it will be useful for those attempting the recipe.
- if your loaf is dense and gluey it might be due to over mixed of the batter;
- wet ingredients might not be fully mixed before adding into to the dry ingredients;
- type of flour used might affect the texture (please follow with self-raising flour);
- control the amount of milk added into the batter as it should not be too runny.
