Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
1 ½ cups melted butter

1 ¾ cups brown sugar


3 tsp vanilla extract plus ½ tsp almond extract

grated rind of 1 orange

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 cups white flour

1 tsp salt

½ tsp baking soda

3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp nutmeg

2 tsp cinnamon

2 cups well-mashed ripe bananas soaked in 1 cup strong black coffee

¾ cup nuts

1 cup chocolate chips

Preparation

  • Beat in a large bowl, beginning with sugar or honey and butter, add eggs one at a time. Add remaining ingredients, and beat until light in color.
  • Add flour mixture and banana mush alternatively to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour.
  • After each addition mix gently to combine, but do not beat or otherwise overmix - this toughens and dries a cake.
  • Add nuts last. Generously butter 2 loaf pans and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Divide batter and bake.
  • Cool 10 minutes in the pan, then remove to finish cooling.
