Recipe: Banana Bread

This classic recipe is the perfect way to use up those over-ripe bananas. For fluffy banana bread goodness:

1 cup sugar
1 tsp bicarb soda (baking soda)
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs, beaten
3 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Grease loaf pan or cake pan with butter, margarine, or canola spray. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Pour in mashed banana, oil, beaten eggs, milk, vanilla, and chopped nuts (optional). Mix well with wooden spoon. Bake for 40-45 mins. Bread is cooked when a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks Jen - We had some over-ripe bananas on the kitchen table yesterday so I busted out this old favorite and had to share the recipe. I don't think you'll be disappointed. The stuff never lasts long in our house :)
