best banana bread. ever…


well, at least according to my family.

and it’s not just because i sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top.

our bananas on the counter seem to turn real brown real fast.  it’s the heat.  so why not bake a little BB with them.


1/2 c. shortening

1 c. sugar

2 eggs

3 ripe bananas, mashed

3 Tblsp. buttermilk

1 tsp. baking soda

2 c. flour

1/2 c. chopped walnuts

M&M’s or mini chocolate chips

preheat oven to 325.  cream shortening and sugar.  add eggs, then bananas and buttermilk.  add soda and flour and mix well.  stir in nuts.  ok, i like nuts.  my kids say NO nuts.  but they will take M&M’s.  Pour into greased loaf pan and bake 45 min to 1 hour. or if you are using muffin cups, they only take 30 minutes.

i love the Simply Baked muffin cups.  i order them online at www.simplybaked.us.  or I buy them at our local ACE store in gig harbor (awesome selection of fun home goods).  soooooo cute!

i’ve even seen banana bread made with mini resses pb cups folded in…. i’m trying that next time!


happy wednesday.
