yes yes yes, like every other basic b^tch I have been making banana bread. Unlike a lot of them, I have been making this recipe for years and it was handed down from my mom! She made this recipe as we were growing up and I use it probably once a month. If I go through a phase where I have a lot of bananas, I don't eat, I will bake two loaves and freeze one for later. I swear this recipe is so yummy and easy you wont
What you'll need:
- 2 Bowls
- Measuring cup
- Measuring Spoons
- Mixer (stand mixer, hand mixer or just a fork and your strong arm)
- Non-stick loaf pan
1 ¾ Cup all purpose flower
1 ¼ Teaspoon baking powder
½ Teaspoon baking soda
⅔ Cup white sugar
⅓ Cup salted butter
2 Tablespoon milk
2-3 ripe bananas (I prefer 3 for each loaf)
¼ chopped nuts or chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350º (Fahrenheit), while the oven preheats...
Mix the flour, baking powder & baking soda into a medium sized bowl and set aside for later.
In the mixing bowl... Mix the sugar & butter together.
Add in one egg at a time.
Add in the milk slowly.
Alternate adding in one banana and the flour mix into the mixing bowl.
Once that is mixed well, add in the chocolate chips or nuts.
Mix until smooth.
Pour evenly into loaf pan (make sure you spray the pan with PAM or grease and flour it so the bread doesn't stick).
Place into middle shelf of the over for 60 mins!
Once it cools Id recommend placing it into this bread box.It keeps bread nice and moist so it does not get gross and dry after a few days! If you live alone (like I do) I'd suggest freezing half of the loaf. It's much easier to save for later so it doesn't go bad. I love cutting a piece to popping it ontop of the toaster so It is nice and warm with & adding a bit of butter to the top makes it perfect to enjoy with the AM coffee.
Until next time,
