Best Banana Bread ….EVER. Comfort Food Chronicles #5
I think I mentioned my favorite cookbook. You know, the Southern Living one. I swear it has made me look like a better cook than I am…many times over. This recipe is no exception. As you’ll see in the video, my youngest son Avery makes an appearance and is overjoyed at the fact that I was making banana bread. His favorite way to eat it is warmed up with a little bit of butter on it. I trained him well.
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Blend these ingredients together. In a separate bowl, blend these ingredients together, then add to the dry ingredients:
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups mashed ripe bananas
- 1 (8oz) can crushed pineapple, drained
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Spoon batter into 2 greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Yield: 2 loaves–and they freeze well too!
