Banana Bread

New postby CodyGramma on Thu Sep 27, 2007 11:04 am

Requested.....here is the one I've used for years.....I think it is a good one...hope you do too!

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (2 medium) mashed ripe bananas
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350....In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in banana, milk and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients and stir by hand until well combined (I use my dough hooks for this step). Pour into 9 x 5 inch loaf pan, greased on bottom only. Bake 50 to 60 min or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool completely before serving (thats the hard part!) LOL

I always triple this recipe...it freezes well!! Enjoy :D
Have a Great Day!

Click here to see the recipe I use!!!
I change it up a bit by using about a tablespoon of vanilla, about 5 bananas, and I use a 50/50 blend of unbleached and whole wheat flour (I sift this together with the salt and baking soda). Don't over mix as this can lead to dryness.

Here's my recipe that I got from my Mom that she got from her's. Combine dry ingredients:
1 3/4 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
Soften:
1/3 c shortening
2/3 cup sugar
Add 2 beaten eggs to the shortening mixture and mix well.
Mash bananas to make 1 cup. Way over ripe bananas are the best!
Add a portion of the flour mixture to the shortening mixture and mix well. Add a portion of the bananas to this combination and mix well. Continue till all are combined. Can also add 1/2 cup nuts. Makes one loaf.
Bake in greased/floured loaf pans at 350 for 1 hour and 10 mins

You all are terrific. Thanks so much. I'll print up each one and give it a taste test.

Have to wait for old bananas though. :D

Lennie,

If you watch the stocking dates at your grocer you should be able to get the speckly bananas cheap. I got a three pound bag for 29 cents.
You can also get them to ripen quicker in a brown paper bag.

I found this easy recipe and wanted to share. It would be good for when you have over ripe bananas but not a lot of time. ;)

Easy Banana Nut Bread

2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Mix all ingredients together. Pour into two greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes or until center is firm.
I'm creative. You can't expect me to be neat too.

A few of these look like my Mom's old recipe -- except hers called for all "wet" items & the sugar to be tossed into a blender! Then add the dry & you're ready to go. I've also been known to mix in mini-chocolote chips and turn them into muffins.

Yum Yum!

Thanks for sharing your recipes! :applause:

Patsy, yummy, yummy yummy! I just tasted your banana bread. It was cooled but still warm. Mmmmm.

I didn't change any ingredients. Nada. I did however double the recipe, using real butter, put walnut pieces in the bottom of a bundt pan and dumped all of the batter into the one pan. It took 1 hour 15 min. at 350 degrees convection/bake and turned out fabulous. It's one heavy bread (doubled, that is) and has a great texture. It's got enough sugar to give it a bit of a crust that's great. Now, I'm at 5000 ft. elevation so baking time might be different for someone else but this, ladies, is a terrific recipe.

:applause: Thanks, Patsy! :applause:

I toss over ripe bananas into the freezer and make my bread when I have enough. Peel them and put in a freezer bag whole.
