My younger daughter, Yanah, loves banana bread, and we make it all the times. Today, we decided to have it for our dessert with some ice-cream of course. Any leftover will be her breakfast tomorrow morning.
If you have never made banana bread, I am sharing the best recipe ever with you. I hope you enjoy it and remember to share your thoughts with me.
Marjie’s Banana Bread
3 ripe bananas
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
Add the almonds last
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.
