This is a different banana bread, sweetened with maple syrup. It’s my absolute favorite banana bread. I’m sure you will love it this version.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 5x9 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, mix the melted butter and maple syrup. Beat in the egg and bananas, leaving a few small chunks. Stir in the maple extract and milk. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and baking powder, and stir into the banana mixture just until moistened. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan. Mix the nuts and sugar, and sprinkle evenly over the batter.
Bake 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always rise as well as clear bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
