For a long time I have tried to find the perfect recipe for Banana Bread. I think this one is the winner. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
1/3 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cups sugar
3 or 4 ripe banana
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cups milk*
2 tablespoons vinegar*
*The original recipe called for 3/4 cups buttermilk. If you don’t have buttermilk, just mix the vinegar into the milk, and you will have the right consistency to equal buttermilk.
Preheat the oven to 350 and prepare an 8″ loaf pan by greasing it with margarine.
Mix the butter and sugar together with a mixer, then add the bananas and the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
Alternately add the flour mixture and the milk mixture to the creamed butter. Do no overbeat this mixture, as it will become tough if you do.
Place the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 1 hour at 350.
After the loaf has been cooled for about 30 minutes, I always slice it in half horizontally and fill it with a cream cheese frosting. This makes it a little more like dessert.
