How to make banana bread.

Place peeled walnuts on a chopping board and chop coarsely with a knife. Put peeled bananas in a bowl and mash them with a fork. In the bowl of a kitchen mixer, combine soft butter with brown sugar and a pinch of salt – beat it for about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, constantly mixing the ingredients. Then, pour in the vanilla extract and natural yoghurt, add mashed bananas, flour sifted through a sieve, cinnamon and baking soda. Finally, add chopped nuts, mix the batter with a spoon, then transfer it to a rectangular baking tin lined with baking paper. Place the cake batter in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius and bake for 45-50 minutes. Remove the baked banana bread from the oven, place it on a wire rack and cool it down.
