Best Banana Bread
This recipe was given to me by my Canadian daughter-in-law, Ashley. She perfected it when she lived in beautiful Barbados - where bananas are so plentiful. It is so easy and SO good! Don't forget to freeze blackened bananas - don't throw them away (see TIP below). Enjoy!
INGREDIENTS: 4 mashed bananas 2 eggs 1 3/4 cups of flour 1 1/2 cups sugar 1/2 vegetable oil 1/4 cup milk 1 teaspoon baking soda vanilla extract (to taste)
METHOD: Combine oil, eggs, sugar, milk, vanilla and mashed bananas. Add the baking soda and flour. Mix well for 2 - 3 mins. Bake at 170 degrees until the top is golden brown.
TIP: Use defrosted old bananas that you’ve kept in the freezer which make the recipe sweeter and you don’t need to use as much sugar.
The banana bread keeps well for several days, intact it gets better - if you can keep it that long!
