Little Millet Banana Bread #Breadbakers

 This month’s theme for bread bakers is to use ancient grains in making the bread. As in my place I can’t find any flour of the ancient grain. So I decided to grind the ancient grain flour on my own.
  Millets were the common food known to our ancestors and the food what we are taking nowadays were unknown to them . Because of their food habits they lived healthy as well as their life span was more compared to the present without any medicines.
  I had heard from my grandparents that they used to have these millets as their main meal and rarely used rice .
    As use of millet has became popular now ,  we try to include once in  a week.

  For the bread I thought of using Little millet flour as the flour is not available in my place , I grounded the flour on my own.
   My mom roasted the little millet for five minutes in medium flame and grounded the flour. The flour was not so fine , it was coarse that gives a unique texture to the bread.

Requirements :

Little millet flour – 2 cup
Banana – 2 large
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Sugar – 1 cup
Butter – 4 tbs
Yogurt  - ¼ cup
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

Method :
Peel the skin  and mash the banana well.
In a bowl  whisk together the butter and sugar till it is fluffy.
   Add in the yogurt and mashed banana and combine well .
 To  this mix in the baking soda and vanilla essence, mix well.
Add the millet flour in parts and combine well.
Grease the loaf tin and pour the batter till half of the tin.
Bake the bread in a preheated oven @ 180*C for 25 – 30 minutes.

Let the bread cool and demould , slice and serve.
The bread was so delicious and crunchy with the unique flavor.

Little millet banana bread is ready to be served.
This month's BreadBakers' theme is Ancient Grains, hosted by Robin at A Shaggy Dough Story. Ancient grains are generally accepted to mean grains that have remained largely unchanged/un-hybridized over the last several hundred years, which means NO MODERN WHEAT. Here's what our creative bakers came up with.
#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely bread by following our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated after each event on the #BreadBakers home page.
