The Recipe How-To

“Embrace the cozy vibes with this nutty brew.”

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)

  1. Start by combining 2 cups (240 g) of all-purpose flour, 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder, ½ teaspoon of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix well.

  3. Add in 4 mashed ripe bananas, 1/2 cup (118 ml) of hazelnut-flavored liqueur, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix everything together until fully combined.

  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients from the first bowl into the wet ingredients in the second bowl.

  5. Stir until everything is just mixed, but careful not to overmix as this will create a tough bread.

  6. Add in 1 cup (100 g) of chopped walnuts and fold them into the mixture.

  7. Transfer your batter to a greased loaf pan.

  8. Bake in the preheated oven for around an hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

There are many ways to make your banana nut bread coffee unique and tailored to your taste buds. Here are some substitutions and variations that you can try:

– Gluten-free option: Instead of all-purpose flour, use 2 cups of gluten-free flour. You can also use almond or coconut flour for more flavor.

– Vanilla-flavored: Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the mix for an extra layer of flavor.

– Coffee glaze: Mix 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of instant coffee, and 2 tablespoons of milk or cream to create a drizzle-on coffee glaze for your banana nut bread coffee.

– Cream cheese frosting: Whip up some cream cheese frosting, spread it on top of your coffee banana bread, and sprinkle some chopped walnuts on top for a delicious coffee walnut banana cake experience.

– Starbucks-inspired recipes: If you’re in the mood for copycat Starbucks recipes, try Betty Crocker’s Banana Cake or Starbucks’ Crumb Cake. You can also add some cinnamon and nutmeg to get the coffee cake recipe just right.

Remember that these are just suggestions – feel free to experiment with different flavors and ingredients to make this banana nut coffee recipe uniquely yours. Have fun playing around and discovering combinations that taste good!

Serving and Pairing

“Add a pinch of cinnamon and transform your coffee experience.”

After you make this delicious coffee recipe, you will want to enjoy it with the perfect pairing. I recommend serving this banana nut bread coffee recipe with a slice of warm banana bread. The flavors of the cinnamon, brown sugar, walnut and banana in the coffee will complement the flavors in the bread beautifully.

If you don’t have any banana bread on hand, don’t worry! This coffee recipe tastes just as good on its own or accompanied by a piece of chocolate cake or muffin. The notes of hazelnut-flavored liqueur are a great match for any chocolate treat.

If you prefer something savory instead, try serving this coffee with a cheese and herb scone or a quiche. These dishes will offer a nice contrast to the sweetness of the coffee and provide a satisfying balance between salty and sweet.

To elevate your experience even more, consider adding whipped cream on top of your coffee or using it to create an iced latte. You could also pair this coffee with a small plate of fresh fruits like sliced bananas or blueberries.

Whatever you decide to pair it with, this banana nut bread coffee recipe is sure to be enjoyed by all who try it. Its unique blend of flavors invites creativity in your choice of pairing and ensures delicious results every time.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“Wake up to the perfect combination of bananas and nuts.”

This coffee banana bread is best enjoyed when it’s fresh out of the oven. However, if you want to make it ahead of time, you can store it properly and reheat it to maintain its freshness.

To make this banana nut bread coffee recipe ahead of time, allow the bread to cool completely once it is done baking. Wrap the loaf tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store in an airtight container. The banana nut bread can be stored at room temperature for up to three days or in the refrigerator for up to one week.

When ready to reheat, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Unwrap the loaf and place it on a baking sheet. Reheat in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until warmed through. You can also slice the loaf and toast individual slices in a toaster or toaster oven.

If you prefer reheating through microwave, wrap a slice of banana nut bread loosely with damp paper towels and microwave on high for 15-20 seconds.

This bread coffee recipe also freezes well. To freeze, wrap either slices or the entire loaf tightly with plastic wrap and then with aluminum foil or place in an airtight container before storing it in the freezer. Frozen banana nut bread can be reheated using the same method as above, but may require a longer heating time.

Make sure to store this banana nut bread coffee recipe properly to maintain its moisture and freshness when reheating.

Tips for Perfect Results

“Take a sip and get transported to your grandma’s kitchen.”

When it comes to making the perfect banana nut bread coffee, a few tips can make all the difference. Here are some suggestions to ensure your coffee is always the right balance of sweet and nutty flavors.

First, always use good-quality ingredients, from the ripe bananas to the hazelnut-flavored liqueur. Choose brown sugar instead of regular white sugar for added depth of flavor.

Second, be careful not to overmix the batter. Mix just enough to combine all ingredients evenly, as overmixing can lead to tough and dry baked goods.

Third, preheat your oven for at least 10 minutes before baking to ensure even heat distribution. This will help your bread rise properly and avoid any uneven cooking.

Fourth, don’t skip on adding cinnamon and vanilla extract to your batter, as they enhance the sweetness of bananas and add a warm aroma.

Fifth, if you prefer a gluten-free version of this recipe, substitute wheat flour with gluten-free flour alternatives. You can also make it sugar-free by substituting brown sugar with maple syrup or other alternatives.

Sixth, experiment with different variations and substitutions like adding walnuts or switching to coffee glaze instead of cream cheese frosting. Take inspiration from popular coffee cake recipes like Betty Crocker’s banana cake or Starbucks’ walnut cake.

Lastly, enjoy your creation with a cup of hot coffee or latte as a perfect companion for your banana nut bread coffee. Remember that with these tips, your banana nut bread coffee will taste just like you’re enjoying a delicious bakery treat in the comfort of your own home!
