Banana Walnut Bread with Espresso Mascarpone

Serves 3 Loaves

Two Hands NYC Banana Walnut Bread

ingredients


For the bread:

  • 9 eggs
  • 5 tbs yoghurt
  • 5 C milk
  • 450g butter, melted
  • 600g sugar
  • 15kg GF flour
  • 6tsp baking soda
  • 11 bananas
  • pinch of maldon
  • 5 C walnuts, crushed (plus more for top) Desiccated coconut, for top

For the espresso mascarpone:

  • 1 tub mascarpone, cold 12 shots espresso
  • 1 C confectioners sugar

Toppings: 

  • Puffed buckwheat
  • Honey
instructions


  1. Whisk eggs, yoghurt and milk together in a bowl. Add sugar and melted butter.
  2. Continue to whisk until sugar has dissolved. Mix in flour, baking soda, salt and bananas.
  3. Whisk until flour is totally combined. Fold through walnuts.
  4. Grease bread tins. Divide batter evenly and top with crushed walnuts and desiccated coconut.
  5. Bake for approximately 1h 20mins or until cake tester comes out clean.
  6. With a mixer, slowly whip the mascarpone.
  7. Once the mascarpone has softened, add the espresso and the confectioners sugar. Tip: It is important that you don’t over-whip the mascarpone. It will split. If you under whip the mascarpone, it will be too loose to sit on the banana bread. The mascarpone must remain cold at all times.

To Serve:

  1. Slice banana bread and lie on a plate. Top with espresso mascarpone, puffed buckwheat and honey.

    Hi

    Looking at the banana bread recipe are you positive the flour count should be 15kg….. looks a bit much to me.

    thanks
