If you are looking for a simple yet DELICIOUS banana bread recipe look no further! This recipe was taken out of my grandmother’s old recipe book and it comes out perfect every time. If you try it be sure to let me know how it turned out!
Here is what you will need:
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 Stick of salted butter (room temperature)
2 Large eggs
3 Ripe bananas
2 Cups of all-purpose flour
1 Tsp of ground cinnamon
1 Tbs of milk
1 Tsp of baking powder
1/2 Tsp of salt
1 Tsp of pure vanilla extract
(Please make sure all ingredients are organic. It might not be less calories but it will be poison free!)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and butter a 9×5 inch loaf pan
Cream the sugar and butter with a mixer until it is light and fluffy yet still creamy. Then add the eggs one at a time, beating them well after each addition.
In a small bowl mash the bananas with a fork until all of the big lumps are gone. Then add the milk and cinnamon.
In another small bowl combine the flour, salt and baking powered and mix well.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture in the mixer bowl. Mix together until combined. Then add the dry ingredients, mixing until all of the flour disappears.
Once the batter is done (It is OK to have some lumps), pour into the buttered pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test. It comes out perfect in my oven at 1 hour 5 minutes but every oven is slightly different.
Let it cool for at least 15 minutes before removing it from the pan.
I personally like my banana bread a little warm so I serve at this point. You can always let it cool completely before slicing and it will be just as delicious!
Much Love and Happy Baking!
