There is nothing that reminds me more of home than my mom’s banana bread. It is moist, sweet, and just utter perfection. My mom would make her banana bread often for us growing up and I have continued to make it whenever I find myself with overly ripe bananas or when I’m just craving its deliciousness. This recipe has been a family secret for years but my mom was gracious enough to let us share it this one time with our Savory Sisters readers. Enjoy!
Ingredients (for one loaf):
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 very ripe mashed bananas
2 eggs well beaten
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
Now let’s make the world’s best banana bread!
Cream together sugar and butter. Add banana, eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking soda.
Blend flour mix into banana mix but don’t over mix.
Turn batter into a greased 9x5x3inch pan. Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 55 minutes or toothpick test.
Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce you to the world’s best banana bread! So my mom’s recipe says to turn out the loaf and let it cool completely. But I don’t have the patience for that. I’ve already spent the past 55 minutes just staring at the oven. There is no way I am waiting any longer for banana bread. So I cut myself a slice.
And yes, it is falling apart because I didn’t let it cool but I am going for taste and not presentation. The bread is so moist and the chunks of banana are warm gooey goodness. A slice of this bread and a cup of coffee…I’m in heaven. Thank you mom for the recipe!
