You know how there’s always certain foods you associate with the place you grew up? For me, it’s banana bread. This is a recipe that has a lot of memories in it, though I think Mom made it with a slightly different recipe… One bite and I’m back in my mom’s kitchen.
Nothing beats my mom’s banana bread.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 c. sugar
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3/4 c . vegetable oil.
- 3 tbsp. buttermilk
- 1 cup mashed over-ripe bananas (approx. two)
- 1 cup walnuts
Preheat the oven and use a hand mixer to blend the liquid ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. If you have no buttermilk handy (I frequently don’t), sub the same amount of regular milk and add 1/4 tsp. white vinegar.
Fold in the dry ingredients next, but break out the hand mixer again to blend the bananas to perfection. Stir in the walnuts last.
Bake in a very, very well greased pan at 325 for exactly 1 hour 10 minutes. Eat with butter.
