Banana Bread

Dec 4th 2009

This is one of the easiest things I have baked, and tastes wonderful. This is an especially good snack for afternoons when you want to munch on something and nothing is around. And the reason I so love this dish is because you get to use the really ripe bananas that you actually don't like to eat. The recipe is from " The Los Angeles time California cookbook".

Difficulty level: Easy (Novice Baker)

Preparation Time: 10 min ( preparation), baking time (50 min or 25 min)


  • 2 cups mashed banana (ripe ones work best)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Method de Preparation:
  1. Combine banana, eggs, oil and vanilla and mix well.
  2. Sift together flour, sugar, soda and salt and add to the banana mixture. ( I usually just mix them well, have never sifted :) )
  3. If you like nuts, add finely chopped walnuts.
  4. Pour batter into greased and wax-paper-lined 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees 50 min or until done. Or fill greased muffin pans 3/4 full and bake at 350 degrees 25 minutes.
