I dreamed this recipe up to use up some over ripe bananas I had in the freezer. It's kind of the combo of a couple different recipes. I bake once a month for the Southside Meal Program. Our church gets 4th Friday of the month. I will bake throughout the month. Then freeze my stuff. Pull it out the night before someone stops over to pick it up. This is a good way to use up them very ripe bananas. Nuts are optional in this recipe. I didn't use any. The breads freeze well. Something good and healthy to serve for breakfast or a snack. It don't cost much to make. Because this recipe uses oil instead of butter. It cut the cost down. Butter is way to high these days. But I suppose you could use melted real butter or margarine in the same quanity the recipe says. In place of the oil.
2 cups flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 over ripe bananas
Mix bananas, eggs, oil and sugar together real good. Add the salt, and baking powder to the flour. Mix it well. Add your dry ingredients to the wet. Mix till thoroughly mixed. Divide between 2 loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees one hour.
Here's the recipe for 8 loaves of bread
8 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup vegetable oil
12 over ripe bananas
1 bag of brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon.
between 8 pans. Follow above directions to make batter. I used 8 of
them tin foil pans from the store. This big recipe is going to our
church to feed the poor. On our Friday of the month to put up the
meal. I happened to get a pile of over ripe bananas from the produce
market. I peeled the peel off. Put them in a big zip lock bag. Then
froze them. I thawed them out. They were just the right mushy to make
bread with. The original recipe said 2 cups of regular granulated
sugar. Then optional was 1 tsp vanilla. I thought that would make it
to sweet. So I figured how about 1 cup brown sugar. Skip the
vanilla. Put a little cinnamon instead. Another banana bread recipe
listed cinnamon. My bread came out real good. It's cooling on the
table. When cooled real well. I will slice. Then box it up. With
plastic wrap between the layers of bread slices. Will put in my upright
freezer till it's time to take it to church.
