Moist Banana Bread Recipe

Using this moist banana bread recipe will make your banana bread nice, moist and delicious. Banana bread never gets dry as some other breads and cakes do. If you are making it the first time you might think that you need to bake it more, but that is not necessary.

For This Moist Banana Bread Recipe You Will Need:

- 4-5 mashed bananas (use ripe ones)
- 1 cup sugar (you can use less)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup shortening or vegetable oil
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup nuts (this is just an option, you can also add cinnamon or something else)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180C) and grease your loaf pan.

2. Take a large bowl and add sugar, shortening (or oil), and eggs. Mix for a while and then add mashed bananas and mix some more. OK, now add all the dry ingredients - flour, salt, vanilla, baking powder and baking soda and mix some more. You should get a nice and very thick batter. This is also the time to mix in the nuts of you want them.

3. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for around one hour. When you stick a toothpick in your banana bread and it comes out clean, you are finished. Leave it to cool for a few minutes and - eat! :)

If you want this moist banana bread recipe even moister, add more bananas.

I have it in the oven currently, and it smells really yummy. I also added chocolate chips. What a great idea to make a website for banana bread! TERRIFIC, and very CREATIVE!
