Banana Bread

I didn’t do that well at predicting the banana consumption in the household this week, so we had plenty of extras for banana bread. Here’s a good recipe. I prefer to have this slightly undercooked so the loaf is extra moist and squishy. Feel free to experiment.

Banana Bread —

1 1/2 C mashed bananas (about 3)
1/4 C plain yogurt
2 eggs, beaten
6 T butter, melted
2 C flour
3/4 C sugar
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla
1 T cinnamon
1/2 C chocolate chips
1 1/4 C toasted walnuts, chopped coarsely (optional)
1/4 C flax meal (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Grease loaf pan.
  3. Mix wet and dry ingredients separately. Fold together
  4. Bake about 55 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center
    comes out fairly clean.
  5. Cool in pan 5 minutes, transfer to wire rack
  6. Enjoy!

  1. At 23 cents a pound (which is what bananas are at my local market) you could make a lot fo cheap banana bread around here 🙂

    I’ve never been a fan of chocolate in my banana bread. I’m all for the walnuts, though.

  2. I always underestimate my family’s banana consumption and rarely have any left for bread. They REALLY like bananas.

    Someday, through an amazing feat of dexterity, I’ll manage to grab a couple of bananas before they do, and then watch out, I’ll be a baking fool.

  3. It’s interesting to see yogurt in this. Banana bread needs something to moisten it, and I’m betting the yogurt does an excellent job of that. In mine, I use applesauce, and that works well, too. 🙂

  4. ” plenty of extras for banana bread” . You do? I mean you have extra banana and all you can think is about bread?
