Banana Bread

Filed under: Recipes — Tags: , , — Miriam @ 5:00 am

I made banana bread today from a modified version of the 18 serving version of this recipe on  If you have bananas that you are looking to mash and make banana bread out of I would recommend mashing your bananas and measuring how many cups of mashed banana you have.  Then find a serving size that works well with the quantity of banana.  You can add walnuts or chocolate chips to this bread to mix it up.

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup margarine or softened butter
  • 1-1/2 cups mashed bananas
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter or margarine. Beat the egg slightly, and mix into the creamed mixture with the bananas. Mix in sifted ingredients until just combined. Stir in milk. Stir in nuts or chocolate chips if you use them Spread batter into one greased and floured 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until top is brown and cracks along the top.
