Old Faithful Banana Bread Recipe
I recently dug out this recipe that I had scribbled on the inside of an old cookbook way back when. It was my go-to treat when I needed to feed my family using whatever I had on hand. This quick bread came to my rescue again and again.
I’m thankful for its simplicity, and all the times I felt rewarded for not throwing out that sweet-smelling fruit no one would eat. So I thought I’d share it in hopes it’ll rescue you too!
It’s so easy!
There are only a few steps to this great Banana Bread Recipe. First, cream the sugar, butter, and eggs together. Then add the bananas, vanilla, flour mixture, and lastly, slowly pour in the milk.
A few helpful hints before we go any further:
Use ripened bananas for the best flavor, right before the inside starts to turn black.
The butter, eggs, and milk should be at room temperature for fluffier baking results.
Use a good vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste which gives a richer vanilla taste to compliment the bananas.
But before you bake it, prep the loaf pan. The easiest way is to line with parchment paper and spray the paper inside the pan with cooking spray.
The bread will simply lift out of the pan by grabbing the paper after it cools for a few minutes.
So that’s it, bake it for about an hour and you’re done! Oh, and if you care for a little variation, add some nuts and/or chocolate chips. Whether plain or decked out, the results are delicious!
Bring eggs, butter, and milk to room temperature for fluffier results.
For variation, add 1/2 cup chopped nuts and/or 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
