You can throw out all your other banana bread recipes, because this one was
so good, it was gone before I could take a picture of it in the pan. The best I got was the
inside of one of the snack bags the kids put into their lunchboxes for the next
I won't make you wait by telling a whole long story, so here's the recipe.
It takes about three minutes to throw together, unless your bananas aren't
overripe yet. Then it'll probably take three days.
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
In the bowl of your standing mixer, add 2 ripe bananas, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil
and 1/3 cup milk or soymilk. Mix well. Add in 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking soda and
1 and 3/4 cups flour. Mix again. Pour into the pan and bake for 45 minutes. At that
point, my banana bread was not done, but it was getting very brown on top
and my kids don't like that. I tented the pan with foil in the oven and let it
bake for another 10 minutes and by that time, a toothpick that I poked into the
bread came out clean.
I can't say if this bread freezes well or even stays fresh for the next
day. But I can tell you that it's one heck of an after-school snack.
