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.

  1. I have a “go-to” banana bread recipe and every time I try a new one I’m disappointed. That said, this looks like a winner!
