Mom made several things that were wonderful. But another of her recipes that stood out as the best of its kind is Banana Bread. The moist cake like insides hidden under the sweet and slightly crispy top is so Delicious.
Momma Katie added: Claim to fame for this recipe actually goes to Aunt Priss. It was one of my favorite recipes and a great way to use bananas that young girls determined were no longer edible. Priss shared many yummy comforting recipes with me such as her delicious apple cake and her (bet you can't eat just one) caramel popcorn.
4 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1/2 buttermilk (or a few drops of vinegar in with reg. milk)
1cup pecans(some say are optional but not to me)
3 or 4 lg bananas chopped
Mix wet ingredients
And dry ingredients separately then mix together. Stir in Bananas and pour into greased pans.
1/2 white 1/2 wheat flour
1/2 applesauce 1/2 oil
1/2 sugar 1/2 honey
and triple the soda.
I usually double or triple for our family. I make 1/2 of the loaves with no nuts. Then when the bowl is 1/2 empty I pour in nuts to my liking. Otherwise I find little already been tasted (and then spit out) pecans in corners of the house or table.
Admittedly it is not the original. But it allows us to eat more of it, with a little less guilt.
Thanks for posting this Steph. We made this recipe last night (nearly all gone now). We cooked the bread at 350 for about 1 hour. The recipe made two regular loaves. We just kept checking until the toothpick came out clean. Here are some pictures:
