My word!! What is it about the smell of banana bread floating through the house, that creates some sort of comfort? Maybe it’s from my own childhood or maybe it’s just the sweet smell that makes you want your house to smell like that everyday!
Banana bread has been a favorite of mine for so long. As much as I love trying new things or experimenting, I simply love the “classic” recipes. This recipe has my heart and my daughters tummies.
I make a very simple bread using the classic recipe…HOWEVER, over the years I’ve added my own ingredients to the recipe.
4/5 ripe bananas
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups flour
1 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup **
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees, prepare your bread pan (spray with coconut oil).
Mix together eggs, syrup, oil, vanilla, then add banana while smashing down with whisk to the consistancy you desire.
Stir together cinnamon, soda, salt, flour ( I sometime will add less than a tsp of baking powder )
Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry while stirring (If it seems to thick, add a little milk or water, it will be fine).
Once it’s all mixed together pour it into the bread pan and place in the oven.
I like to let mine bake 45-60 minutes, I like when the top is a golden brown. Stick a knife through the middle to make sure the bread is cooked through.
Enjoy the lingering smell…and the taste because if your children are like mine it’s gone within a day or two!!
