Banana Bread

This recipe comes from my sister Rachael and is so easy to make a really a no fail kind of recipe.

She used to make us each at loaf at Christmas time that everyone looked forward too. She has added many different flavourings from chocolate chips, raspberries, smarties, dates and blueberries and all versions are good. She has even made it with spelt flour and it is just as moist and delicious as with regular flour. All you need are overripe bananas and a little love.


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees oven.

2 1/2 cups flour
1 2/3 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cups or 225 grams of butter
1 egg
2 cups mashed ripe bananas ( or 5 bananas)
2/3 cups buttermilk ( if you don’t have buttermilk you can add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix dry ingredients
Mix wet ingredients
Combine then add mashed bananas to wet ingredients then add all of that to the dry ingredients.
There may be some lumps but that’s fine.

Bake the banana bread in 2 buttered loaf tins for 60 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until a knife comes out clean.
