I love this recipe!! It's my Mom's and it's delicious!
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups very very very ripe bananas mashed up
DIRECTIONS (super easy by the way...)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix all dry ingredients in a big mixing bowl.
Cream butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla then add bananas. Slowly combine with dry ingredients and mix well. Line a 9 x 5 non-stick bread pan with parchment paper.
Use enough parchment paper so that it hangs over the outside of the bread pan. See photo above. This makes it really easy to remove the loaf and saves you from having to grease the pan. Bake for 50 minutes.
Many people add nuts to their banana bread, I however do not. I have a severe allergy to certain nuts. The kind of allergy where I need to stab myself with an epinephrine shot if a nut even looks at me. Cue the violins please....Seriously, many people prefer to have nuts in their banana bread so go ahead and add them if you want! Just don't invite me over if you do...
