A Family Classic

When we have bananas that are reaching their ripening prime, we make banana bread! This is a classic in our family. The kids like it with chocolate chips. My husband doesn’t like chocolate chips, but likes walnuts. The kids don’t care for walnuts.

So, I say what’s wrong with the original…just banana bread. It’s a wonderful moist bread, and does not need anything else but the banana. Celebrate the banana!

This recipe is simple and delicious.


2 c. Flour

1 tsp. Baking Soda

¼ tsp. Salt

½ c. Butter

¾ c. Brown sugar

2 Beaten Eggs

2 1/3 c. Mashed Overripe Bananas


Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar.

Stir in the eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.


Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into loaf pan. Bake in oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

Enjoy your slice of banana joy!
