This banana bread is so easy, and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already! It takes 5 minutes to mix everything together and you don’t even need to use a mixer. Jeremy’s mom, Mrs. Lisa, made this for us about a year ago, and it turned into my favorite banana bread recipe. The best part? It’s so easy and quick!
Mrs. Lisa got it from The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook. Did I mention how blessed I am? Not only was I born into an incredible family, but I married into a wonderful family as well. Jeremy’s family welcomed me with open arms and treats me just like their daughter. They are so loving, and I am constantly thanking our great God for his blessings. I definitely know not to take great in-laws for granted. I mean look at both of our wonderful families below- THANKFUL!
Anyway back to this incredible, delicious, and easy banana bread. Here’s what you will need (I’ve gotten bad at taking a picture of it!):
- 1 3/4 cups of flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 c mashed ripe bananas
- 1/2 c milk
- 1/3 c vegetable oil
Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar) Make a well in the center of the mixture.
Combine all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl (egg, mashed banana, milk, and oil). Add them into dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
*side note- did you know you can freeze ripe bananas? Sometimes I want to bake with the incredible old bananas sitting in our bowl, but don’t have time or any reason to at the moment. Just peel the bananas, put them in a ziplock bag, and throw them in the freezer.
Back to the recipe– Spoon batter into greased (I did it with butter) loaf pan. Bake at 325-350 (depending on your oven) for 45 minutes.
Yields one big delicious loaf of banana bread!
