Farm Girl Banana Bread

My boys love banana bread. I introduced my one year old to banana bread recently, and he just giggled and smiled after his first bite. A few weeks prior to that,  I was carrying my one year old to his high chair on my left hip, while carrying a very ripe banana in my right hand. He leaned over before I could stop him, and took a big bite out of the banana, peel and all! When I attempted to retrieve it, he developed a sudden case of lockjaw, and  he refused to budge. He quickly swallowed what he thought was a treat. I laughed for at least the next ten minutes.

Banana Bread


1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup margarine or butter
2 eggs
3-4 bananas (ripe)
1/2 cup buttermilk or 1 cup milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Nuts (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Combine above ingredients and mix on high until only small bumps in batter remain. ( I never use buttermilk. I always use the milk and lemon juice combo as a substitute)
3. Pour in pre-greased loaf pan, pre-greased muffin pan, or muffin baking cups.
4. Bake at 350 until light brown color on top. Small loaves take approximately 45 minutes.
5. Enjoy!

I love making mini muffins too. I freeze them in Ziploc bags and pull them out for the boy's breakfasts.
