Instructions

  1. You will need two medium mixing bowls and a large large mixing bowl which will be your main mixing bowl. You will also need a small bowl to whisk your eggs in.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease your bread pan. For some reason, Crisco has always worked the best with this recipe.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.
  4. In the large mixing bowl (your main mixing bowl) cream together your butter and sugar. Whip them until they are very light - about 3-4 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl whisk the two eggs until they are bubbly. The butter and sugar should still be whipping - slowly add the eggs to the whipped butter mixture until it is very creamy.
  6. In a medium mixing bowl mash together the bananas, vanilla and milk.
  7. Begin adding the flour mixture and banana mixture alternately to the butter mixture while beating it on low speed. Constantly scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure the flour mixture doesn't stick to the bowl. Continue adding all of the banana and flour mixture while the mix beats on slow.
  8. Once all of the ingredients are added, pour the batter into the bread pan and spread it evenly with a spatula. If your oven cooks unevenly and the bread begins to brown too early, place a piece of tin foil over the top of the bread after 45-50 minutes to prevent the top from burning.
  9. Use your toothpick test to ensure the bread is cooked through the middle!

      Oh man! This is a great looking recipe! I love bannana bread in general - I am sure this would be epic. I must say that you are a great writer, apparently great cook as well, and a very positive and uplifting individual. I think that the kids you work with are very lucky and I wish you the best as you keep writing and working.

      Honestly, I've never frozen it because we always eat it so fast! I'm going to have to try it. No Sugar...you're brave to cut out the fruits too! I'm enjoying mango so much and I dare say, it's my clean diet! Good luck. Glad to have you here.

      Will do! I just started a no-sugar diet (including no fruits), which I hope to carry out for two to three months. After that this will be one of my first treats to make. Does it freeze well? ..because I'll only have it in small amounts at a time.

      Of all the sweet baked goods that I used to enjoy, banana bread is missed the most. this recipe looks delicious and even looks healthy too if made with whole flour. Bookmarked for future use!

      Ha ha ha.....if you find the recipe on that "other" website and it's called meatloaf.....it wasn't me.

      It's really a great recipe, I hope you like it!

      Hey, that looks like my meatloaf. I think you stole my recipe.

      Maybe I'll give that a try. My daughter loves bananas. I put one in her lunch every day.

      Not that I'm a great cook. I make meatloaf. And cereal.

      It's good to protect yourself. There are too many pirates on the internet these days!

      Please delete my comment from yesterday with the link to your stolen recipe. We don't want them to have a backlink to HP.
