I ❤ Banana bread. It is so yummy, and it’s got healthy stuff in it. A little. I make mine from scratch as follows:
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
6 large mashed overripe bananas
Splash of vanilla – about 1tsp
1/2 cup Sour Cream
2 cups self rising flour
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 1 loaf pan or line 24 muffin cups or prepare 8 mini loaves.
Beat the butter. Add the sugar, beat some more. Add eggs, bananas (the mixer will mash them if you just chunk them up), and sour cream. Add the vanilla. Slow the mixer way down and add the flour 1 cup at a time, stirring it in to avoid making a mess. Mix about two minutes after you get all the flour in. Pour into your pans.
Bake loaf for 60 to 65 minutes, minis for 30, or muffins for 22 minutes – or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out and cool on a wire rack.
You can add nuts if you want to, but I serve mine warm with crunchy peanut butter. It is SO GOOD!
