    Default ISO Banana Bread Recipe

    and not just any recipe, i am looking for the most fragrant and flavorful one ya got! Why? I have some people comming over sometime this week, and I want to have the bread baking in the oven when they come. I want to scent the house and offer them a tasty snack too.

    So...anyone have one that would meet this criteria??

    I make Kellie's recipe she shared and it's delicious. I add a tiny bit more sugar and a small bit of vanilla to it though. I don't use mini loaf pans either.

    Streusal topped Bannana Bread
    Makes 3 mini loaves, for $2.58
    Prep:10 minutes Make : 350 for 30 minutes

    1 1/2 c all purpose flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 cup mashed bananas (3 small overripe bananas, approx 1 lb)
    2 eggs
    1/3 c sugar
    1/4 c (1/2 stick) butter, melted

    Streusal
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    1/4 cup butter-softened
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Heat oven to 350, Grease 3 disposable mini loaf pans

    Mix together flour, baking powder and soda, salt, nutmeg and cinn. in a medium bowl.

    Beat bananas, eggs, sugar and butter in a large bowl until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Divide batter between pans.

    Streusal: Mix flour sugar butter nutmeg and cinn. in bowl with a fork. It will be crumbly. Sprinkle over top of batter.

    Bake at 350 for 30 minutes-a wooden pick inserted into center should come out clean. If streusal is browning too quickly,cover loosely with foil

    I'll be posting my families' recipe in the "Cooking from Scratch" forum later today with a pic. Extrememly fragrant and delishious! The key to this recipe is black bananas, disgusting I know, but makes super bread.

    Here's mine. It's pretty basic, but reliable. It always raises nicely & stays moist forever.

    I usually make "buttermilk" with lemon juice and milk or also, I've used a very thick mixture of powdered milk.

    makes 2 8-inch loaves or 4 mini loaves



    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1/2 cup stick butter, softened
    2 large eggs
    1 1/2 cups mashed bananas ( 3 to 4 meduim)
    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 1/2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt


    1. heat oven to 350. grease bottoms of pans.

    2. mix sugar and butter. stir in eggs until well blended

    3. add bananas, buttermilk, and vanilla. Beat until smooth

    4. stir in flour, soda and salt

    6. 8 in loaves 1 hr

    7. mini loaves 40 minutes

    That's the best banana bread recipe I've tried. I use yogurt and chocolate chips instead of nuts.

    Got a question..I've never made banana bread so I need a bit of help. (I know this question will make me sound not too bright, so don't laugh too much, but I need the answer) When the recipe calls for overripe bananas, just how overripe should they be? Very mushy or overripe to the point that they start to become slimy?

    I've used REALLY overripe and not-so overripe. IMO, the mushy, gooshy ones are the best flavor. Bruises are ok, too.

    I love the Best Recipe one from Cooks Illustrated. I tried it a couple of times, and I threw out my family favourite which up till then tasted pretty darn good.

    Here is the link to Leite's Culinaria who has it posted online with permission http://www.leitesculinaria.com/recip...ana_bread.html

    I just last night made my banana bread recipe with the most mushy bananas I've ever used. They were disgusting last week when I peeled them and stuck them in a freezer bag and froze them till I had time use them (last night). I thawed them and mashed them up. They were a bit soupy from being frozen (like zuchini gets).
    The bread is great! It's got a nice rich dark color and as moist as they can get.
