    Best Banana Bread

    Jan 08 2018

    DSC06126This banana bread recipe is foolproof and you can add your own flair! It is my go to recipe for brunch, a potluck or dessert. Add some nuts or toffee. How about a coconut lime glaze? Anything goes. This recipe is worth memorizing, you will use it so much. I got this recipe from the original Moosewood cookbook years ago, and it is the best banana bread recipe I have tried yet.

    Dry Ingredients:
    2 cups flour
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp baking powder

    Wet Ingredients:
    3 mashed, ripe bananas
    3 tbsp yogurt, milk or buttermilk, or sour cream
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 eggs
    1 stick butter softened
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    Optional add-ins:
    chocolate chips
    peanut butter chips
    dried cranberries
    coconut flakes
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Grease a loaf pan
    Mix together dry ingredients in one bowl.
    In another bowl, beat together butter and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes
    Add in banana and beat until well mixed
    Add eggs, vanilla, milk and mix  until incorporated.
    Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until just blended-don’t over mix.
    Stir in any add-ins, plunk in loaf pan and bake about 50-55 minutes, testing for doneness by inserting a knife and making sure it comes out “clean”.
