Banana Bread

We always have bananas in our house.  My husband and older son eat them for breakfast.  You already know my take on eating anything sweet at breakfast time, and my younger son doesn’t care too much for them.

Occasionally, I end up having over ripe bananas that no one wants to eat – and I don’t blame them.  So I end up making banana bread.  The thing with baking sweet breads in your house is that the whole house smells divine.  As soon as the kids enter the house, they want to know what’s cooking.

Banana bread

Once the bread comes out of the oven, it gets devoured pretty quickly too.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup oil
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped
  • nonstick spray to grease the pans


Here’s how I make it:

Banana bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda.
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix the eggs, oil, and bananas.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Fold in the walnuts
  6. Pour batter into greased two loaf pans and bake for 30 – 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Let it cool a bit, then cut it into slices and enjoy!
