Banana Bread


I haven’t tried this recipe yet but it’s on my list for the weekend.  It makes two loaves.  I’ll report back on this one!*


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 7 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda


  1. Cream the butter and sugar. Blend in the bananas, vanilla and eggs.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients.
  3. Add to the banana mixture and mix until just combined. Pour into two greased 9×5 inch loaf pans.
  4. Bake at 350F. Check on the bread after 35 minutes (it may take up to 60 minutes). Banana bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool the banana bread in the pan for 10 minutes then cool completely on a wire rack.

I JUST put 3 loaf pans of banana bread in the oven…we’ll see what it tastes like in about an hour.  I did find a great site for banana bread recipes that look delicious:

One of the recipes is very similar to the above but called for a 1/2 cup of vanilla yogurt.  I happen to have some plain yogurt sitting in the fridge so I decided to add 3/4 cup (the recipe I’m using is larger).  Hopefully, it will help make a moist banana bread!
