- 120 g (½ cup) unsalted butter - 200 g (1 cup) granulated sugar - 2 eggs - 500 g (about 3 medium) bananas (overripe is fine, but just ripe is fine too) - 50 g (about ½ cup) walnuts - 150 g (about 1 cup) fresh cranberries (frozen will work too) - ½ tsp. ground cinnamon - 30 ml (2 tbsp.) olive oil - 250 g (2 cups) all-purpose flour - 1 tsp. baking powder - ½ tsp. salt
Pour the olive oil into the mixture, add the cinnamon. Mix everything together well. Now add the diced banana and cranberries. Next add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt and chopped walnuts. Stir until the dry ingredients are mixed in and the dough is smooth.
Grease a mold with oil, sprinkle with flour. Stir the dough and place it in the mold. Bake the banana bread in a preheated oven at 180 °C (350 °F) for 45-50 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick.
Cool the bread on a wire rack. If necessary, bake a second batch. Slice the cooled bread into portions.
