1 1/2 Cups of Flour
1 1/2 tsp. of Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp. of Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. of Cinnamon
1 Cup of Mashed Bananas (about 3 medium bananas)
3/4 Cup of Sugar
1/8 tsp of Salt
1/4 Cup of Cooking Oil
1/2 Cup of Chopped Walnuts or Pecans (optional)
Grease the bottom of and sides of a loaf pan and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and 1/8 tsp of salt. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and set aside. In another mixing bowl, combine the egg, bananas, sugar, cooking oil, and add egg mixture all at one time to the dry mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in the nuts (optional). Spoon batter into the prepared pan and bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
I always add a cinnamon and sugar mixture to the top right before baking.
This recipe is from my mom….who handed it down to her. It is the best banana bread ever! Enjoy!
