Old Fashioned Banana Bread

Bananas are the only fruit that I am okay with letting "go bad" because banana bread is one of my favorite recipes to make!! So delicious, and with gooey chocolate chips and nuts added .. MMmm!!

There are so many different ways to make it - so here is one!

What You Need:

  • 1/2 cup Crisco or Butter (1 stick)
  • 1  cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup or 3 large bananas, very ripe, mashed
  • 1 Tbsp. Milk or Half & Half
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (whole wheat or white - or 50/50)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup additions (chocolate chips, walnuts, etc.)

What You Need To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree.  Grease & flour 8x4 or 9x5 load pan.  (If using 8x4, add 10 minutes to baking time.)
  2. In a Large Bowl, cream softened butter, and sugar together, until light & fluffy.  Add the egg, beating well, then stir in milk and mashed bananas.  Set aside.
  3. In a Medium Bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.  
  4. Blend the flour mixture into the banana mixture and stir just enough to evenly combine.
  5. Fold in any additions.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 65-70 minutes in 8x4 pan, or 55-60 minutes in 9x5, or until toothpick is comes out clean.
  7. Cool in pan for 15-20 minutes, transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
