Sesame banana bread

Maybe all  people say  when make a banana bread  is wonderful! but I think this is really awesome, you know: I'm the queen of banana's pudding but I saved someone to make this sesame banana bread that I find in 101 Cookbooks and  indeed is an amazing recipes blog.
Is moist, tasty, and delicious! (love the color too)
Ah! and love the sesame inside and outside!


1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine grain salt
1 1/3 cups toasted sesame seeds
1/3 cup  canola oil (or sunflower)
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups (340 g) mashed very ripe bananas
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

For the glaze

1 cup confectioners'sugar
4- 6 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
sesame seeds to garnish
(black and white)

Preheat the oven to 180 ° (350 F) and place a rack in the center.
Butter and flour a 23 x 13 cm loaf pan or equivalent.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar,baking soda and salt. Add 1 cup of sesame seeds and combine well.
In a separate bowl, mix togeher the oil,eggs,mashed banana,yogurt and  lemon  zest.
 Pour the banana mixture into the flour mixture and fold with a spatula until just combined. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan until golden brown about 45 minutes.
You want to achieve beautiful color on the cake, but you don't want to bake all the moisture of it.
 So the minute you're in that zone, pull it. Erring on the side of under-baking versus over.
Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
While the cake is cooling, prepare the glaze. In a bowl, whisk together the sugar and lemon juice until smooth. When the cake is cool, drizzle the glaze on topo of the cake,spreading with a spatula to cover, and finish with the sesame seeds.
I use black and white but you can use only white too.

Pan de plátanos con semillas de sésamo

Este pan de plátanos con semillas de sésamo lo recomiendo de todas maneras, rico, especial cuando tienes esos platanos muy maduros, y el sésamo le da un toque especial.
La receta está adaptada de 101 Cookbooks.

1 taza de harina blanca sin polvos de hornear
1 taza de harina integral
3/4 taza de azúcar rubia
3/4 cucharadita de bicarbonato de soda
1/2 cucharadita de sal
1 1/3 taza de semillas de sésamo (natural o tostado)
1/3 taza de aceite de maravilla o de canola
2 huevos ligeramente batidos
1 1/2 taza de plátano molido
1/4 taza de yogurt griego o natural
1 cucharadita de ralladura de cáscara de limón

Para el glaseado
1 taza de azúcar glass o impalpable
4 a 6 cucharaditas de jugo de limón
semillas de sésamo para adornar (puede ser blanco y negro o sólo natural)


Precalentar el horno a 180°c
y poner el calor al centro .
Engrasar y enharinar un molde alargado para pan de unos 23x
13 cm.
En un bol grande mezclar las harinas, azúcar, bicarbonato de soda y sal.

Agregar 1 taza de semillas de sésamo y mezclar bien.
En otro bol mezclar el aceite, los huevos, los plátanos molidos y la ralladura de limón.
Unir las dos mezclas la  de plátano y las harinas, unir todo bien. Colocarla masa en el molde alargado preparado. Llevar a horno por unos 45 minutos.
Hay que estarlo viendo, que quede dorado pero no pierda la humedad.
Lo que quiero decir es que no debe pasarse de horno.
Retirar el cake de plátano y dejar reposar unos 10 minutos.
Mientras el cake se está enfriando se puede preparar el glace,
En un bol mezclar el azúcar con el jugo de limón, Cuando esté listo esparcir sobre el cake y adornar con semillas de sésamo.
