Mom’s Banana Bread

Moms Banana Bread

Sometimes you have to throw super-healthy out the window and go with what tastes good. In honor of that we made my mom’s famous banana bread and it was as good as I remembered. Then again, how could it be bad with a whole stick of butter plus buttermilk? Mom, you are the best!

Prep Time: 10 mins  Cooking Time: 45 mins to 1 hour

2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter (room temp)
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup sugar
2 ripe bananas (very well mashed)
1/2 to 1 cup pecans pieces and/or mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In the bowl of mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, mashed bananas and milk. Add flour mixture a little at a time and continue to mix. Fold in nuts / chocolate chips and stir together. Pour into a well creased loaf pan and bake for 45 mins to an hour or until toothpick comes out clean.Moms Banana Bread

My kid wanted this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now he wants to make it every morning. I’ve created a banana monster.

    I'm having a hard time focusing on the banana bread — that plate is very cool. We will definitely try this one. My 2-year-old will love mashing the bananas.
