Yummy Banana Bread

Thank you to Pat on Timberlane for sending in this delicious recipe! Bananas past their prime are given new life and a chance to shine again in this classic recipe that is a MUST in every kitchen. A MUST, I say!

Recipes written on cards are just a little more legit, you know?

Oven Temperature: 350 degrees

Prep time: 10 minutes

Baking time: 40-60 minutes*


1/2 cup of Sugar

1/2 cup of softened Butter

2 Eggs

4-6 Tablespoons of Milk

1 teaspoon of Vanilla

2 cups of Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

2 smashed Bananas

1/2 cup chopped Walnuts


  • In a bowl cream together sugar and butter.

  • Add eggs, milk, and vanilla and mix well.

  • Add flour, baking soda, and baking powder, mix well.

  • Fold in mashed bananas and chopped nuts.

  • Pour into greased loaf pan(s) and bake in a preheated oven until middle is set.

Here's me mixing

Here's me hoping bananas will add some much needed moisture to this very dry batter

Here's me realizing I'm an idiot who forgot to add the eggs


  • *The recipe calls to make 2 small loaves which would take about 40 minutes. I did one large loaf in a standard size loaf pan and it took just over 60 minutes to fully bake.

  • I mixed by hand, but a kitchen aid or electric mixer would work great. And be a lot easier.

  • The older the bananas the better, they need to be at least a little brown.

  • I used 6 Tablespoons of milk and the batter was perfect. Once I remembered the eggs.

  • To ensure the loaf comes out easily without tearing, line the bottom of the pan with wax paper after applying the cooking spray. Works like a charm!

This came out delicious and was devoured in minutes! It was moist and not overly sweet with great flavor. Will definitely use this recipe again. Again, thank you so much Pat for sending us the recipe and for sharing it with all of us!
