Flawless Banana Bread!

If you've got some rotten bananas hangin' round the kitchen catching the eye of some very hungry (and very annoying) fruit flies.....check your pantry for these supplies and wow your friends and loved ones with this fool proof and ultra tasty quick bread! 

What you'll need:

1 c. sugar
1 stick butter (room temp)
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas ( I choose to use atleast 4)
1 tbl. milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

*pre-heat oven to 325' and grease your loaf pan
*cream together butter and sugar & add eggs in one at a time, beating well
*in small bowl, mash bananas with fork & add in milk + cinnamon
*in separate bowl, add remaining dry ingredients
*add banana mixture to creamed mixture until blended-then add in dry ingredients until flour is completely dissolved
*pour into prepared pan,cook about an hour(check with toothpick) and let cool for 15 minutes (if you can wait!!)

I prefer to add LOADS of walnuts -and sometimes dark chocolate chips- to my mixture, and I'm sure you could really add whatever your heart desires..pepitas or raisins seem like good choices as well!

p.s. sorry to all you vegans out there for missing out on this deliciousness!!!!


  1. dude, add ins. totally. i'm thinking walnuts + chocolate chips + raisins + pepitas... ps i can and will totally veganize this!! yum!!

  2. Walnuts are essential to banana bread! My grandmother's banana bread was always buttered and devoured within minutes of emerging from the oven. She put walnuts on top of the loaf and they got browned to golden, melt-in-your mouth perfection.
