Good Ol' Banana Nut Bread....the great steady

  • In normal households people use the bananas that have been fully ripened, that aren't so pretty any longer for this recipe. Not a possibility in this house. As this picture indicates, I had to mark our bananas "don't eat me" insuring the successful ripening to sweet perfection. Yes food disappears fast with two teens under one roof. We made four loaves of this yummy staple. Enjoy... the recipe follows.

    Gotta love it Banana Nut Bread
    • 1/2 c. oil
    • 1 c. sugar
    • 2 beaten eggs
    • 2-3 bananas (ripe)
    • 2 c. flour
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
    • 3 tbsp. milk
    • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    • 1/2 c. nuts (optional)


      1. Beat oil and sugar. Add eggs and bananas; mix well. Mix together dry ingredients, then add to wet mix. Stir in milk and vanilla. Add nuts if desired.
      2. For a sweet change substitute 6 ounces of chocolate chips for nuts - the kids love it!
      3. Pour into greased floured loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Let cool and wrap in saran wrap or foil. Tastes even better the next day.
