Grandma's Banana Bread (Amazing)
This recipe comes from Grandma D. on my hubby's side. She makes it all the time, and it's always gone in a flash.
The ingredients are the same as the popular featured blue ribbon one by Robin DuPree, but this makes just one loaf (different proportions.)
1 csugar (i've tried brown (love brown), and it works, but white is best in this recipe. it lets the other favors shine)
1/2 tspbaking soda
1 1/2 c(takes about 3) over ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cnuts, optional (i like pecans)
How to Make Grandma's Banana Bread (Amazing)
- Cream butter, sugar & eggs. Add salt & baking soda; mix well. Beat in the bananas. Add the flour. Stir in nuts if using.
- Pour into a LARGE buttered loaf pan (mine measures 4 1/4" x 8 1/4" on the bottom, 5 1/2" x 9 1/2" on the top, 2 3/4" tall.) If pan is not big enough, it will not cook all the way in the center. If you have a smaller pan, don't use all the batter in one pan.
The recipe says to let sit at room temp. For 20 min. I never do.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45- 60 min., until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool 5-10 minutes before loosening sides and inverting, letting it cool the rest of the way on a cooling rack.
- Great out of the oven, even better the next day, if it doesn't get eaten first! Wrap up after it cools completely to keep it moist.
