Home Cookin': Banana Bread

Posted By on Mon, Jan 21, 2013 at 3:54 PM


I've yet to find anything more comforting on a chilly day than a warm, thick slice of banana bread with a tall glass of milk. This is my mom's recipe and it couldn't be easier: seven ingredients, mix, mash, pour, bake. You have my permission to eat it for breakfast or dessert — or both.

Banana Bread

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola oil or melted butter
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
cinnamon, to taste
4 very ripe bananas, peeled

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Mix in the sugar and oil (or butter). Add the flour and baking soda; stir until well combined. Add several shakes of cinnamon.

In another bowl, mash the bananas finely with a fork. Add these to the other mixture and stir.

Pour the batter into a greased and lightly floured bread pan. Bake for about 55-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center pulls out clean.
