Banana Bread

11:38 AM


Sorry that it's been a little while since my last post. I recently started a new job in its busiest season and it's been a bit of an adjustment but now that summer is winding down, things should be back to normal. Well, between that and the heat. Summer heat and humidity have been in full force lately.

Anyway, back to the baking! I learned over the summer that my cousin loves banana bread. Like, really loves it to a point where if you put it out on the table don't don't take any for yourself and he's there, you're not getting any. (Based on a true story that was kind of comical to watch.) I had found myself with an abundance of very ripe bananas and decided to make him some. He loved it and asked for more at a later date.

I found this recipe originally on Hoosier Homemade. It was very easy to follow. I chose to omit the walnuts, as I was unsure if my cousin liked them.


2 cups MINUS 2 tablespoons Flour
1 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
½ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Oil
2 Eggs
3 very ripe Bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon Vanilla
½ cup Fisher Walnuts, chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a bread pan with non-stick cooking spray
In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients; flour, sugar, baking soda and salt
Add oil and eggs, one at a time. Beat after each addition
Add mashed banana and vanilla, beat well
Fold in nuts
Pour into pan ( recipe makes 1 regular loaf (9x5) or 3-4 mini loaves)
Bake at 350 degrees - regular loaf 50-60 minutes or mini loaves 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
