Banana Bread Recipe: I love reading recipes like a lot of people like reading a novel, I was browsing on Pinterest checking out Recipes and found this banana bread. I like to check out the ingredients and see how it is made. That’s how I found this recipe, it was the ingredients that caught my eye it has, SIX Bananas and brown sugar, really it is just a double batch of bread.!! The rest is history!! But while on Pinterest I found a gluten-free zucchini bread to try, you can check it out. This was the first time I made this recipe and it was a hit with our company, they said, “this is as close to my mama’s recipe as I have ever tasted”. It friends visiting, full of flavor using all those bananas, perfect as I had 6 bananas I needed to use up. Next time I will use walnuts or pecans in the batter, maybe even some coconut and chocolate in the batter. I used to make a banana bread that like 2 cubes of butter and oil for moistness, with this recipe there is no need to add all the extra fats to the recipe, and is even better the next day. And here you are and your bananas are not quit right, try this tip I found on Pinterest for immediate results.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 6 mashed medium overripe bananas
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan. (My 9×5 pan is currently scratched out of commission and so I used two 8×5 pans which you can also do, but I prefer the one big 9×5 loaf.)
- In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten, do not over-mix. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
- Next day
- Bread tastes even better the next day. To store, simply wait for it to cool completely and then wrap in plastic wrap.
Ok so this is contradictory but we like to eat banana bread hot with butter and that even makes this more delicious!! I love the little bit of salty with sweet. A little butter won’t hurt if in moderation, right? You could even opt for using ghee where the dairy is removed making it a healthier choice.
I suppose that you could drizzle with thin icing, or spread with Nutella, (I want to try that) no matter how you eat it, I’m telling you its delicious.
When the bread was cool, (what I had left) I wrapped in plastic wrap and will keep in the fridge. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry to get this bread made and did not take pictures while preparing. Next time….
