random recipe: Banana bread

Someone at work asked if I had a good banana bread recipe. I found it in my files and thought I should type it up. And if I'm going to the trouble of typing it up, I might as well share it with you!


Banana bread

325 degree oven

Need two loaf pans or one bundt pan. Best grease them up first.

In one bowl:

1 1/3 cup soft margarine

3 ½ cups sugar

4 eggs

In a measuring cup:

2 Tbsp white vinegar

Top up with milk to equal

1 1/3 cup

In another bowl:

4 ½ cups flour

2 ½ tsp baking powder

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp salt

And four mashed & smashed bananas

Mix bananas in with the margarine/sugar/egg mixture. Add milk/vinegar alternating with flour mixture, stirring until just mixed.

Add walnuts or chocolate chips if you like.

Try the batter, just to make sure.

Pour into two greased loaf pans or bundt pan. Should take about an hour to bake. If the sides get dark while the middle still goopy, turn down heat to 300 degrees and give it an extra 15 minutes or so. Should pull away from edges and look a bit cracked on top when it’s done.

If you can, wait until it cools for at least an hour before taste-testing. When you slice it up, for extra calories & fat, add butter or margarine before eating.

Goes good with coffee & tea. An arguably healthy breakfast, particularly if you add nuts.

note: the milk/vinegar mixture is a common substitute for buttermilk, which my mother never bought. If you're a purist and would prefer buttermilk, have at 'er.
