  • Two Large Eggs
  • One Spoon Of Baking Powder

Directions

1I’ m going to start off with my bananas here I have got three medium bananas and I let these get ripe on the counter top until they got that nice little black speckles on them and then I put them into the freezer putting them in the freezer and freezing them turns all that starch into delicious sugar and makes the sweetest banana bread you will ever have doing it this way is the way you want to do it and after they were in the freezer for a few days I let them thaw out and you will see they are not very appetizing at are at all they’re very disgusting looking you just want to cut the end off and squeeze the banana right out of the peel and there’ll be a lot of juice in there you want to retain that juice and just kind of squirt this out into a bowl now once I got those into a bowl I’m just going to take a fork and mash these up until it is a puree if you want to leave bigger chunks in your banana bread you can go ahead and do that I like mine rather smooth so I’m going to make sure that this is pureed well now to make up our batter I’ve got a large bowl here.

2I’m going to add in one stick of softened butter you could also use margarine be sure and save that wrapper because we will use it later to grease our pan and add in one cup of granulated sugar and I’m going to mix these two together and I’m just using this nifty little handheld egg beater thing that I got I want to try it out so decided to use it on this but you can use whatever mixer that you have you want to use an electric mixer or stand mixer go ahead and use that and once I got that sugar and butter cream together I’m going to add in two large eggs to my bowl and you want to mix those eggs into the butter and sugar mixture and before you get going too far you want to add in one and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract and I just go ahead and mix this all together using your beater and then go ahead and set that off to the side and then we can start working on our dry ingredients now in a second Bowl I’ve got one and a half cups of all-purpose flour here.

3I’m going to add in one teaspoon of baking soda as well as half a teaspoon of salt and I’m just going to mix these ingredients up together make sure that that baking soda and salt gets incorporated into the flour and then I’m going to dump my dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and I switched out to a spatula here because this batter gets kind of thick right here and you just want to mix this up be sure and get all that flour incorporated nicely into the wet ingredients and you can see here how you know kind of stiff that batter is I’m going to add in half a cup of sour cream and this is going to keep our banana bread nice and moist and tender now if you don’t have sour cream or don’t want to use it use yogurt that would be the best substitute for this but it is best if you use sour cream and I’m going to take my three bananas.

4I pureed and dump that in and I’m going to mix all these ingredients together until this is well combined you want to make sure and scrape down the sides of the bowl you don’t have to be careful with this at all you know if you want to get your mixer back out to mix this together by all means go ahead and then once that all comes together you want to add in a two ounce package of chopped English walnuts you could also just leave them out if you wish you just want plain banana bread you just want to mix those in and then set your batter off to the side now I’ve got a nine inch by five inch loaf pan here I’m using a metal one and using our butter wrapper I’m going to grease this pan this is a nice little tip whenever you are making something with butter and it requires a greased pan just save the wrapper from that and use that to grease the pan it’s a lot easier it’s a lot neater you don’t have to get out the shortening or vegetable spray or anything like that just use.

5You’d normally throw away anyway and then you want to pour out your batter into your loaf pan now if it didn’t stay before this is a nine inch by five inch loaf pan it’s just a regular size normal sized loaf pan and you want to scrape all that goodness out of the bowl into your loaf pan and you want to even out this batter and you want to bake this in a preheated 325 degree oven for between sixty and seventy five minutes now you’re really going to have to watch it towards the end so it doesn’t get too brown on top if you need to go ahead and put a piece of foil over the top so it doesn’t Brown we want to make it until a toothpick or a knife insert it into the center comes out clean and once it is done baking go ahead and take it out and let it rest in the pan for about 10 minutes and then use a knife and kind of release the sides for the pan and then go ahead and turn that out and from here you can go ahead and slice up your banana bread and serve it however you wish now I like to have it just the way it is and then the next day I like to take some slices and make french toast out of it there is nothing better than banana bread french toast and there you guys go that is how I make my banana bread from scratch.
