Banana Bread

Susan Pagano


I was given this recipe from a dear friend. I think it might originally have been a Bisquick recipe but I'm not certain about that. Store brand biscuit mix is much less expensive and I make this often to gift to those who have invited us to their homes for whatever reason. I never arrive empty handed.

8-12 depending how it's sliced
10 Min
55 Min


1/3 c
canola oil
1 1/2 c
very ripe bananas
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 can(s)
2 1/2 c
buttermilk biscuit mix
1/2 c
chopped nuts


1Pre-heat oven to 350
2Grease pan bottom (I also flour)
3Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a fork (I sift the biscuit mix so I don't get lumps) My husband prefers this bread without the nuts and I love nuts. Many times I will substitute 1/3 cup of almond meal for 1/3 cup of the biscuit mix. As for the bananas - I wait until the skins are black and the bananas are really soft because that adds extra sweetness to the bread.
4Beat vigorously, by hand, for 1 minute
5Pour into large prepared loaf pan
6Bake for 55-65 minutes until tester comes out clean
7Cool for 5-10 minutes then run knife around the edges
8Remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely before slicing
