While I am not a fan of bananas, Banana Bread has always been a favorite! Whenever my family had leftover bananas, we used the over-ripe bananas to make a dense, delicious loaf.
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup margarine (if you use butter, skip salt)
- 1 cup mashed bananas (2-3 really ripe)
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- (optional) 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Beat the eggs in a stand mixer, and add sugar. Melt the margarine and combine. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mash bananas (either in stand mixer or a separate bowl with a potato masher) and mix into wet ingredients. Combine wet and dry ingredients in the stand mixer until batter is formed.
Once combined, grease loaf pans and pour batter to 1/3 line.
Place loafs on the middle rack and bake for one hour.
