Grandma's Banana Bread

posted on: Thursday, October 27, 2011

Hello friends!
It is finally CHILLY here!
Chilly and gray today!
My favorite fall weather:)

Both boys are tucked in their beds for afternoon naps.
Emma's curled on the couch with a blanket reading.
And obviously I'm sitting by the computer!

Since I haven't posted a recipe this week I thought I'd share the BEST banana bread recipe with you!
I LOVE banana bread!
But it can't be too dry. 
And it can't be too thick.
My grandma makes the best banana bread so I asked for her recipe!
I've made it three times and each time it was absolutely delish!

Grandma's Banana Bread
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 t. salt
1 t. soda
3 or 4 very ripe bananas
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
nuts (if desired)
Mash bananas. Add eggs, sugar, salt , soda, oil and blend.
Add flour and nuts.
Bake in 2 small or 1 large greased and floured bread pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour. (I like the smaller pans)

This is a fun recipe for the kids to help with!
Emma is usually the banana masher and Colt is the stirrer :)

This picture is from last week... enjoying their banana bread on the back porch.
As you can see the dog has figured out if he stands below the porch they will throw him bites ;)

The weekend is almost here!
Do you have any big plans?
Tomorrow is our fifth wedding anniversary!!! :)
Sadly I won't be seeing much of my sweet husband...between work and a football game.
We're planning on celebrating on Saturday with some mexican food! Our fav:)

Have a great Thursday night!

  13. Tried the banana bread, my second attempt ever (the first was a flop a few years ago) and it was yummy. Just needed nuts (I like nuts) but we were out.

    And Travis's comment was to sweet!
