Thanx heaps for having this web site, luv moist b/bread
Awesome Banana Bread!!! All I added was 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and a dash of allspice.
I'm an FRG (Family Readiness Group) Leader for an Army Reserve unit in MN. My Soldiers LOVE this recipe. I sell treats on drill weekends and I never have left over banana bread
DOES IT MATTER IF YOU USE SELF RISING FLOUR INSTEAD OF ALL PURPOSE WHEN MAKING THE BANANA BREAD?
@Carmella: self rising flour might be a bit strong on baking powder, if you want a dense moist banana bread you don't want it to rise too much, but then again it would probably turn out just fine.
This is the best banana bread recipe EVER!!
Everyone i share my banana bread with loves it!
Thanks sooo much for sharing.
Thnx fur the recipee it waz delishous
I added chocolate chips......... maybe it was squirrel poop i don't know
How long would you need to bake if you made this recipe into muffins instead of bread?
around 20 minutes I think... just test them the same way you would test banana bread - stick a toothpick in and if it comes out clean they're done.
WOW!! This was a simple and easy recipe!! My kids and I devoured it!! Then they pleaded MMOOORRREEE!! This bread is a winner in our house!
Do you need the baking powder for this?
I put it in a bundt pan, it's in the oven now. I am not sure on the time to bake so, I will be watching it closely...My first time to make this, thanks for the wonderful recipe, the batter was yummy! I know it's going to be great!!!
1.) Can someone indicate the size of the loaf pan? 2.) Does this recipe call for a mixer or just mix by hand will do?
3.) If by hand, should the 2 eggs be beaten first before mixing them with the sugar and oil?
Hope to hear from someone.
Jess, loaf pan looks something like this - http://www.foodutensils.com.au/images/354T67454_Loaf_pan_Non-Stick.jpg
You can mix it by hand, but mixer will do it faster. Don't over mix if you are using a mixer. Beat the eggs first... but it doesn't really matter. Banana bread is easy to make and it comes out great even if you don't stick to the recipe 100% :)!
Whipped-up and had this fantastic banana bread recipe in the oven in less than 10 minutes. My gang love muffins I made 24 muffins instead. WOW!
I made this recipe for my cousins and they loved it!!!!1!!!!
CAN THIS RECIPE BE DOUBLED AND TASTE JUST AS GOOD?
@Barbara: sure, just make two loafs instead of one biger one.
I've used many banana bread recipes from many different place, but this is the best one so far! Thanks.
I made this recipe tonight. I substituted applesauce for the oil and used graham wheat flour instead of white. I just pulled it out of the oven and my kids loved it. It is not as sweet as I would have liked it but is a lot more healthy than the one I grew up on. My girls were devouring it and saying "this tastes just like bananas!" Next time I might use 1/2 wheat flour and 1/2 white flour and up the sugar by 1/2 cup..... even though I shouldn't. Thanks for the ideas.
Would I be able to use butter instead of shortening?
@Andrea: yep, you can use melted butter
Just made this...used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup wild honey. Also substituted olive oil for vegetable oil and only used 1/2 cup. For 1/3 of the flour I used whole wheat and the rest white. It smells wonderful.
How long will it take to cook if I use mini loaf pans?
Lita, just test it with a toothpick or a knife.
