Decadent Fluffy Banana Bread.
By Haleigh Dookram
DECADENT FLUFFY BANANA BREAD
1 1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup water
2 frozen ripe bananas
Garnish of your choice (blackberries, chocolate chunks/drizzle, etc.)
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Lay a sheet of parchment in your loaf pan.
Mix together all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Add in water, eggs, and vanilla but don’t mix; just let sit while you prepare the bananas.
Heat frozen ripe bananas for 3 minutes, then peel and mix the banana flesh in its own bowl until smooth.
Add the banana to the dry ingredients, water, egg, and vanilla, and mix it all up!
Fold in your garnishes (fruit or chocolate).
Pour batter into parchment-lined loaf pan.
Bake at 350ºF for 20-30 minutes (if the top is still too gooey for you, leave it in the oven for a few minutes after shutting off the heat and let the top bake a bit more).
Finally, let cool and serve!

Haleigh Dookram is a professional photographer and food blogger in Ontario, Canada. From hearing her dad's stories of fresh mangoes and wild toucans in South America to her mom's sweet memories of decadent Mennonite cream puffs, Haleigh learned while growing up in a mixed-race family that food was always about more than just consumption. Food stood as a connection and a bind. After graduating with her Creative Photography diploma at Mohawk College, Haleigh found herself with a strong, artistic skillset—just at the beginning of a pandemic. Though the timing couldn't have been less ideal, it became a new opportunity for Haleigh to find her way back to her roots. After starting a sweet food blog and producing its content, the magic reignited with flour sifting through the air, butter sizzling in the saucepan, and the vibrant pop of aromatic herbs and spices filling her kitchen. Haleigh discovered a story, the same story she was raised with, and the one that remains a constant joy—Food has a story, and capturing it is a dance. Connect with Haleigh on Instagram, where she shares stories, recipes, encouragement, and food and floral photography @soulofsweetness.
