Banana bread is a delicious snack or dessert. I usually like the ones with nuts, until I found an interesting alternative. Passion fruit butter is a creamy spread that melts in your mouth. This recipe is perfect for tropical countries because you have access to a wide array of sweet bananas and of course delicious passion fruit.
1 2/3 cups plain flour, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup caster sugar
1/3 firmly packed cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 ripe bananas, mashed
For the passion fruit butter:
50g cream cheese
175g butter, salted
1/4 cup icing sugar, sifted
1/4 cup fresh passion fruit pulp
Preheat the oven at 160C and then grease a 10x20cm baking pan with melted butter.
Combine the baking powder, flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and bananas in a bowl. Mix well and then place it into the greased pan. Bake the bread for 30-40 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the bread to test doneness. It must come out clean. Let it cool for 5 minutes before removing it from the pan. Let it cool completely.
Place the cream cheese, butter, sugar and passion fruit pulp in a food processor or blender. Process it until smooth. Transfer it to a sealed container and refrigerate until set. Slice the bread and serve it with the passion fruit butter.
