Banana Bread

Banana Bread

This is another recipe that comes from a friend, and is my idea of the “definitive” recipe of its genre.  My friend Amy shared this banana bread recipe with me when we were in college, and it was the best banana bread I’d ever eaten, before or since!  And I don’t really like bananas, so that’s a great compliment!  It’s moist, not too “banana-y”, tall, and gently sweet.  I mash up bananas and save them in the freezer for this and make four loaves at a time. 🙂

Ingredients
  1. 1 1/4 cups mashed banana (be generous)
  2. 1 egg
  3. 3 TBS olive oil
  4. 1/3 cup milk (can be non-dairy)
  5. 2 1/2 cups flour
  6. 1/2 cup sugar
  7. 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed lightly
  8. 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  9. 1 tsp salt
  10. chopped pecans to taste, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease or oil a standard loaf pan (I use a stoneware one).
  2. Mash banana in a small bowl and mix with egg, oil, and milk.
  3. In a separate, larger bowl, stir together dry ingredients and make a well in the center.
  4. Pour liquid ingredients in and mix thoroughly, scraping the bottom to make sure all the flour is stirred in.
  5. Scrape mixture into loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes. Test with a knife or skewer for doneness. Let cool for ten minutes, then remove from pan.
Notes
  1. I freeze mashed bananas until I have enough for several loaves, and then freeze the extra or give them away. I don't put nuts in mine, but I'm sure it is very good! 🙂
