Drives Me Bananas Bread

I had a few over ripe bananas, and being someone who hates to waste food, I decided to make banana bread. After years of testing and tweaking recipes, I think I finally found one that I’m ready to declare my favorite.

“Drives Me Bananas” Banana BreadBanana Bread Recipe

  • 3 Medium Ripe Bananas, Peeled & mashed
  • 2 Whole Eggs, Beaten
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Butter, Melted
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 2 Cups Flour, Sifted
  • 2 Tsp Baking Power
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Nuts (optional), Chopped

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Toast nuts, if using. Spray the loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and coat with brown sugar (like you would if you were coating the pan with flour.) Cream bananas, eggs, brown sugar, yogurt, butter, and vanilla. Mix flour, salt, and baking powder. Pour wet ingredients onto dry and mix. Pour into loaf pan(s). Bake at 300° F. until done, about 1.5 hours.

A friend of ours recommended adding an orange that has been quartered, seeded, and ground in the blender into the mix before baking. I’ve never tried that, but it sounds interesting.
