1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 tbsp matcha green tea powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp bicarb soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream (a heaping cup of it)
4 very ripe bananas, mashed (medium-large sized ones)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease or spray a 9 inch loaf pan, set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the oil and sugars. Add the eggs, one at a time and vanilla and whisk until it becomes a smooth mixture.
Add the bicarb soda, salt and matcha green tea powder into the mixture then gradually add the flour, stir to mix until just combined.
Fold in the bananas and sour cream.Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Cool until warm before serving.
If you prefer, you can use butter instead of oil.
You can opt to not use sour cream in the mixture but I wouldn't recommend it. In saying that, I ran out of sour cream once so I added extra bananas instead and it still worked out pretty well.
If you want a stronger matcha flavour, use 2 tbsp instead.
If you want to make a non-matcha version of it, simply leave out the matcha. I can guarantee you it's one of the best banana bread recipes you can make as it's delicious and moist.
