Best Banana Bread
I have another Banana Bread recipe on this blog. It’s perfect and amazing and I have made it no less than fifty times. My dear hubby brought some other woman’s banana bread home from work. And then he said… get this…
“I like this better.”
I Throw myself on the floor in a fit of justified hysteria.
And then I decided to see if I could replicate it. Cause he was right, it was fabulous.
I found a recipe that was a bit different, tweaked it a bit, and boy am I happy.
It’s amazing. Delicious. Moist. Full of wonderful banana flavor. I would never have known this banana bread bliss had another woman’s baked goods not threatened to capture my hubbies heart.
Grandma's recipe stands the test of time!
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup ripe mashed bananas
- 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and prepare chosen pan.
Blend together the eggs, yogurt, oil, extract and bananas in mixer with low speed.
Add in sugars and fully incorporate.
Then add flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until just combined.
Pour into prepared pan and bake 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
I have doubled this recipe with great success.(Be sure to start checking your banana bread at 45 minutes. I have had it be done in 50 minutes or heard that it can take as much as 75 minutes. It just depends on the accuracy of your oven.)
