I LOVE banana bread.
I can't think of many things more wonderful than a slice of piping hot banana bread,
with butter melting into it's delicious center.
I can easily eat a whole loaf all on my own.
It just seems to happen!
Before I know it, I turn around and it's all disappeared.
I love my banana bread to be as moist and soft as possible.
As long as I can remember, my mother has always added a cup of yogurt to her banana bread recipe to achieve that perfect soft and oh-so-tasty texture.
Here is my favorite recipe:
2 C. Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup softened Butter
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
3 overly ripened Bananas
1 Cup Yogurt, plain, vanilla, lemon, or honey flavor
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl or mixer.
Stir for a few minutes until everything is well mixed.
Grease two loaf sized pans. I usually use olive oil.
Pour half of the batter into each pan and bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour; until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
This bread is also scrumptious with a few blueberries,
or a handful of chocolate chips added to the batter.
Yum! Yum! Yum!
