Banana Bread:
This is one of my favorite banana bread recipes! I've made it so many times. Each time I make it, I modify it slightly. Here's my most current version!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/8 - 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs

3 large mashed bananas (just over 1 cup)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup milk

1 1/3 cups + 3 tbsp Cake flour (or 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
*Optional - chocolate chips, walnuts etc.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a  9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.
Cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add eggs and mix.
Stir in bananas, vanilla and milk.
Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir into mixture.
Add chocolate chips or walnuts if desired.
Pour  loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Lower heat to 300 degrees and bake for 40  minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

**Sometimes I make mini loaves for the girls. With the mini ones, I usually bake them for 17-21 minutes.

  1. I've always wanted to make good banana bread. When ever I make some, it turns out hard and the kids don't like it. Any tips?
