Dooney's Nigerian Banana Butter
Recipe Category: Breakfast
A delicious smooth spread, with the flavours of butter, and creamy tasting texture of butter, which can be amped up with extra flavour profiles
  • Bananas
  • 25 - 50g Butter
  • Peanut butter - vegan option
  • Lemon juice - 1tsp or 1tbsp
  • extra flavour options - dry pepper, uziza, kuli kuli, peanut butter
  1. Depending on the quantity you want to make, i suggest you start with one banana. with lemon juice. use 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon depending on how zingy you want it. Mash it up with a spoon and add softened butter. For the vegan, healthier option, mash the banana and add peanut butter
  2. Stir with a spoon as much as you can, but i must warn that the stirring action of a spoon is not strong enough to combine into a smooth spread
  3. Get our your whisk or hand mixer and combine. You are likely to get a smoother spread, but some separation. this just means that the banana mash is of a higher ratio than the butter
  4. Add a teeny bit more extra butter, and continue whisking with the hand mixer. In about a minute or less, the spread becomes smooth
  5. For extra banana flavour and to increase the volume, now the spread is smooth, add another banana. Whisk until smooth. You would looooooove this, I promise.
  6. Add your flavour options. I portioned and added peanut butter to the banana butter. This was my favourite by miles
  7. To another portion, I also added ground kuli kuli (using a mill), to the banana butter
  8. For extra spice and heat, to another portion, I added dry pepper
  9. For the final portion, I added chopped uziza leaves - second favourite
