It doesn’t matter what you call it, Banana break or cake, one thing we can all agree on is that it’s absolutely delicious. I love banana bread because it is one of those foods that remind me of home. A comfort food that makes not only a great breakfast idea, but was one of the staples in my house when I was growing up. The recipe my mother used was that her grandmother used and so today I am going to share it with you.
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 40-60 minutes
1/2 cup Sugar (white or brown)
1 1/2 cups flour (white or brown)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
*1/2 cups sour milk
1/4 cup butter (melts)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup mashed bananas (2 bananas)
* To makes sour milk add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to milk and let stand for 5 minutes before using.
In a mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients together (sugar, flour, baking soda, and baking powder). Stir dry ingredients together.
Once all dry ingredients are mixed together add the wet ingredients (sour milk, eggs, vanilla, and butter) using a hand mixer on low beat everything together. Add the mashed bananas last beating them in with the rest of the batter.
Grease and flour a loaf/ bread pan. Set oven for 350F or 176C and bake for 40-60 minutes or until fully cooked. Let cool and enjoy. 🙂
