Mom's Banana Bread

I remember some things in my childhood more clearly than others. The smell of banana bread and Boiled Raisin Cake are two of those really good memories. My mom baked them both often enough that it was somewhat routine. After I got married, I got my mom's recipes for both. I've never made the raisin cake but the banana bread is a tried and true recipe that never fails. Through the years I've tried several other very successful banana bread recipes but somehow mom's is still the best. Maybe it's nostalgia. Or it could just be fact. 1/4 C Butter, soft 1 C sugar 1 egg 3 medium sized ripe bananas, mashed* 1/2 C milk 1/2 teas salt 3 teas baking powder 2 1/2 C flour ** 1 C walnuts, coarsely chopped***

  • Preheat over to 350 and spray 4 mini loaf pans with cooking spray.

  • Beat butter and sugar together until smooth.

  • Add mashed bananas (* I add them to my Kitchen Aid and let the wire attachment mash them up)

  • Add milk, salt and baking powder, mix until thoroughly mixed.

  • Add flour, changing attachment if using a Kitchen Aid. (**I usually use about 1/2 C of the flour as wheat instead of white. You know, just to pretend to be heathy.)

  • Scoop into prepared pans, filling 3/4 full.

  • Bake for 40-45 minutes (more like an hour for regular sized pans)

  • Turn out of pans and let cool completely.

** Unless you are allergic to nuts, it's a crime to bake banana bread without them. Just sayin...

*** And also I just have to include this Snap I received one day. Yep, baking is worth the effort. :)
