4-H Banana Bread

Adapted from All Recipes.

When I was making dinner last night, I smelled the unmistakable odor of overripe bananas, and decided to do something with them before it was too late. I searched for a recipe I could make with only two bananas, and knew I struck gold when I found the one I started with. It’s an old 4-H recipe, which I modified with some traditional banana bread spices. The result was delicious. A dab of butter and a glass of organic milk were all it took to make it into an amazing breakfast.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed with a fork
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 5 TBSP milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinammon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Directions:

  1. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add egg, banana, milk, and vanilla, and mix well.
  2. Sift together dry ingredients and incorporate into banana mixture.
  3. Spread batter into a buttered and floured loaf pan.
  4. Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes, until the top of the loaf browns and cracks open.
