Banana Bread

This one comes from Better Homes and Garden with a slight twist.


2 cups all-purpose flour OR gluten free multi-purpose

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I always use a little extra)

2 beaten eggs

1 1/2 cup mashed bananas (5 medium)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup cooking oil or melted butter or margarine

1/4 cup chopped pecans


– Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

– Grease bottom of 1/2 inch up the side of one 9 x 5 x 3 inch or two 7 1/2 x 3 1/2 x 2 inch loaf pan.

– It says to mix the dry stuff together then the liquid.  I always just mix everything together at once.

– Spoon  batter into prepared pan(s).

– Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes depending on pan size (bigger means longer time).  The best method is to stick a wooden toothpick into the center, if it comes out clean your good, if not cook longer.

– Cool pan for about 10 minutes.  Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.  Wrap and store the night before for best slicing.  I usually have a hot piece right away, delicious!

– Enjoy!

    Mollie, I always put a splash/glug of vanilla in mine:) Betty, next door says it’s the best she’s ever eaten—-you might want to try that? By the way, did you get the garden markers, got them in Utah.
