I wish I could take credit
for this recipe but it comes from
my sweet friend, Barb D.
She used to make it for her hubby,
our friend, Jeff, before he passed away.
It is, hands down,
BANANA BREAD EVER~~
This time of year we have lots of
and this is the perfect recipe
to use them up.
Barb, I added a couple of things for our family---
Sugar and Vanilla-
You know me!
Here is some of what you will need--
Mixing-It looks like this:
Here you go!
Banana Bread- Barb's Recipe
1 Box KRUSTEAZ banana bread mix (or Duncan Hines/any brand)
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar*
1/2 cup nuts (or to taste)
3 small ripe bananas (DO NOT MASH)-quarter lengthwise and dice into small pieces (slightly larger than peas)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon good vanilla*
In large bowl: Combine mix, flour, sugar and nuts. Toss diced bananas into dry mix and stir to coat.
In separate bowl: Whisk together- eggs, water, oil & vanilla. Add to dry mix.
Stir just until moist.
Sprinkle extra nuts on top if desired.
I use two regular size loaf pans and make 2 loaves. Barb uses a large loaf pan and makes one big loaf.
Bake @ 350° -about 45 minutes for small loaves-over an hour for large loaf-or until tester comes out clean.
Barb sometimes adds: peeled apple, pear, coconut, drained crushed pineapple. If you add fruit cut back on water content.
*I added the sugar and vanilla-it was not part of Barb’s original recipe—but you know me!
My son is a banana bread NUT
(little play on words there).
He says this is the best he has ever had.
So- there you have it.
ALL the monkeys in my family
seem to like it....
Except for THIS ONE!
He seems to like his
better than anything.
I guess it is better than drinking THIS---
HAVE A GREAT SUMMER DAY!
I will be around to visit you soon!
