  2. Kavi Foodomania says

    Hey Swat! 😀 I gotta tell you, you need lots of protein shakes to keep up with your kids! You probably don’t need any workout at all with kids who keep you on your toes all the time! 🙂

    Coming to the recipe, if I were to eat plantains ever, this would be how I would like them! They end product looks awesome!! 🙂

  3. simple baking says

    Oh my!! You really have your hands full with those two :D.
    BTW your loaf looks marvelous. Love the even texture and can imagine that it must have tasted great too.

    Looks delicious, Never tried baking with plantains, but I will have to try this out for sure. Sounds like you had a really eventful weekend, glad everything worked out with the tissue paper 🙂

  12. Navaneetham Krishnan says

    I only know of using plantain, just like you have mentioned – into curries and we love the crispy fried version very much. What a discovery that ripen plantains can be used for making bread. Awesome idea and thank you so much. I need to try out and see whether my family will love it.

  21. Reshmi Mahesh says

    So your kids are doing their work…Keeping you on ur toes and making you miss your heart beats…:)..My sis had put a bead in her nose when she was small and 8 people had to hold her for the nurse to remove it…:)..
    Bread looks very yummy and loved the texture…

  22. tadkapasta says

    Hey Swathi, that bread looks great and really liked the combination of plantains with cashews.

  23. Heather Schmitt-Gonzalez says

    Okay, I’ll tell you something….when I was little, I put a bean in my nose and my mom had to take me to the hospital to have it removed!! I think that’s fairly common…don’t worry! This bread sounds awesome…I don’t why I’ve never thought to add cashews to a bread since they are my favorite nut! I’m happy that you’ve brought this lovely loaf by and added it to the BYOB basket this month. Thanks Swathi! =)

  36. Elisabeth says

    Swathi, I just love…love your plantain bread. Never wold have thought about substituting it for the bananas. Makes a lot of sense to incorporate very ripe plantains. I will certainly will make this yummy bread very soon, since we have such an abundance of plantains here in S. Florida, and Lora and I make plantains at least once or twice a week. Thanks for sharing, and BTW, you can still make a bread this month…a new month for ‘twelve loaves’ …which is originated by Lora. This month is breads with cheese…check it out!

  37. Velva says

    I love cooking with bananas, and I love plantains. I think this was a great idea to use it, in this bread.

    Very nice!


  38. Ramya says

    Ur kiddo sounds soo cute and naughty! A bit scary to find out that a little one can stuff 3-4 tissues in that teeny tiny nose:-(
    I never had plantain other than fritters, chips or curry..This bread looks gorgeous. Loved the texture

  42. The 21st Century Housewife© says

    What a stressful weekend you had! Why do kids put things up their noses? It’s so strange; they all do it though!! I’m glad it was all okay in the end.

    Your plantain cashew bread sounds delicious. I have eaten plantain, but never in a quick bread; it’s a great idea to use it! Cashews are my favourite nut too, so I think this would be wonderful.

  43. spusht says

    omg, why do kids like to freak their parents out!? the last i heard a friend’s little son put 3 tires of his toy car in his mouth, and they could remove only 2. they thought of waiting until next day to see if 1 tire comes out. so scary!

  44. Alea Milham says

    Oh goodness, kids can be so scary! And then they grow up and start driving! 🙂 I am so glad your princess is okay!

    Your bread looks wonderful! What a delicious twist on banana bread.
