Tempt My Tummy Tuesday – Mom’s Famous Banana Bread!

Posted by djw209 on June 2, 2009

In honor of being in PA over Memorial Day weekend, I am going to share my Mom’s FAMOUS banana bread recipe with you! I just LOVE it! Sisterr and I grew up eating this as an after school snack, for breakfast or really, whenever! It’s good with peanut butter or cream cheese. But I believe it’s best with nothing on it!

Enjoy!

Mom’s Famous Banana Bread

  • 1/3 c butter or margarine, soft-not melted
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temp works best
  • 3 ripe bananas (small to medium work best), mashed
  • 1t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/3 c milk
  • 1t lemon juice or vinegar
  • 2c all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c chopped nuts or chocolate chips (optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Liberally grease 9X5 loaf pan.
  • Add lemon or vinegar to milk and set aside to curdle.
  • Cream butter and sugar then gradually add the eggs one at a time. It’s OK if the eggs turn some of the butter into small lumps but this won’t happen if the eggs are room temperature. Beat until well combined.
  • Mix in the bananas then the soda and salt.
  • Add the flour and milk alternately.
  • Stir well after each addition.
  • Add nuts or chips if desired.
  • Pour into loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or until the bread springs back when lightly touched in the center.
  • Cool in pan on wire rack.

The bread will have a better flavor if allowed to sit overnight before eating.
