Banana Bread

Need a use for overly ripe bananas? Make banana bread of course! I've made many banana bread recipes but this one is one of the best ones I've made so far. It turned out very moist and not overly sweet.

Banana Bread

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup mashe d bananas
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter or margarine. Beat the egg slightly, and mix into the creamed mixture with the bananas. Mix in sifted ingredients until just combined. Stir in milk and nuts. Spread batter into one greased and floured 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until top is brown and cracks along the top.
* I baked this for about 40 min. I also added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tsp ground cinnamon.

Yum! This looks good. I'll have to try it since I have some bananas that will be ready for using in a few days. Your food blogs is one of my favorites!

Yum, I love banana bread. That looks great. Actually I am due to make some soon. I just need to remember to take the bananas out of the freezer. :)
