Banana bread

banana bread

This recipe is my stand-by. It so good, and it always comes out so well. It's just your basic banana bread recipe, but it tastes so homey and just makes you happy. Does anyone else equate tastes and smells to places and feelings? I'm sure we all do it. For me, this is what home should smell like. I made this loaf for a friend.

Banana Bread

3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour (I never have self rising, you can just use 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt for every cup to make self rising)

Mix butter into mashed bananas, add sugar, egg and vanilla. Add flour last. Mix well.
Pour in greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.

It's best with whole wheat, but I didn't have any ground. White works well too.

  6. Hey... this might be a little off the topic but what sort of grain mill do you have? Just like the kitchenaid they cost an absolute bomb here and I don't want to get the wrong thing :)

  7. I use a Whisper mill. It and the NutriMill are the best. They grind the finest...which is what you'll want.

    Thanks for the recipe. I wanted to use some self-rising flour to make banana bread! I never thought of PB chips. I also love your photos.

  8. Oops. excuse me. They renamed "Whisper Mill" to Wonder Mill. It's worth buying these expensive mills because you will love them. Hand grinders are way way too much work to use regularly. And the kitchenaid attachment is worthless for fine flour. I've really researched these mills.
