Can I use cornstarch instead of baking soda or powder in banana bread?

User Avatar
No, cornstarch has nothing in it to cause the bread to rise. It is for thickening and that's all.

Can you substitute a plantain for a banana in banana bread?

User Avatar
I am about to find out! Personally I've done it a few times. I've never tried it with a green plantain as they are starchy and more like a potato, but I've had great results with ripe plantains. My recipe calls for 3 medium cavendish bananas, but I usually use 1 decent sized plantain and 1 regular cavendish banana. You may want to lessen the sugar you add slightly though, as the plantains seem to be sweeter than a typical banana when ripe (of course this might just be my taste). Good luck

Depends on the type of banana you want to make. You need to keep in mind things like are you someone who only eats kosher or maybe you only eat wheat. Also keep in mind what kind of oven you have. Here is my fav recipe 1. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan. 2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. 3. Cream butter and sugar in large bowl. 4. Add bananas, egg yolks, vanilla, lemon juice, and baking soda. 5. Mix well. 6. Stir in flour. 7. Beat egg whites until stiff, then gently fold into batter until blended. 8. Stir in hot water. 9. Scrape into prepared pan. 10.Bake about 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 11. Let cool on wire rack for 10 minutes. 12. Turn out on rack. 13. Cool completely.

How many eggs do you put in banana bread?

User Avatar
Banana bread recipes vary widely, depending mostly on how much the yield is. I just made a banana bread recipe for the first time, that called for 6 large eggs, which is more than I've used in a recipe before. This was for a 9 inch by 5 inch loaf pan. A wonderful website full of recipes can be found in the related links section below.
