"Teens Cook" By Megan and Jill Carle (with Judi Carle) I keep checking this book out of the library to make this receipe so I decided I need to write it down here.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F Lightly butter of spray the bottom and sides of a 9 inch loaf pan.
  2. place the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute or until the sugar is completely mixed into the butter. Add the eggs and mix for 1 minute, or until the batter is smooth. Add the bananas and mix for 1 minute or until no large chunks remain. The batter will be lumpy but the pieces of banana should all be 1/2 inch or smaller.
  3. Add the baking soda and salt and mix on low speed for 1 minute or until combined. Add the flour and mix on low speed for 1 minute, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally, until all of the flour is incorporated.
  4. Stir in walnuts. (optional).
  5. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven heat to 350 F and bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  6. Remove the bread from the pan and place it on a cooling rack. (If you let the bread cool in the pan the bottom will become soggy.).

Okay...not enough banana flavor though...I used a loaf pan and mine took longer than if I had used glass. It got kinda dark and wasn't cooked in the middle so I had to bake it longer... Jelly

Excellent Banana Bread! I was worried about the lack of cinnamon or other spice that I regularly use in all of my banana breads but this didn't need it. It's packed full of banana flavor and baked up into a beautiful loaf (although some of the edges got crispy but that could be because I used a glass loaf pan). This recipe is definately worth all 5 stars! Made for Spring PAC 09.
