Banana Bread

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by staticat09

This is my mom's recipe. It's one of my favorite breakfast treats of all time. Tip: when the loaves cool, wrap them in aluminum foil. This prevents them from drying out. Note that, while the recipe says to use 2 big loaf pans, you can make 4 mini loaf pans. Those are perfect for last-minute Christmas gifts.

It's my fault, I think, that this recipe went horribly wrong for me. I have horrible luck with banana bread anyway, and I keep trying to find a recipe that is failproof. I totally missed the instruction that was noted only in the introduction (you may want to add that to the actual recipe) to put this in 4 large pans. I used 3 smaller ones and they were between 1/2 and 2/3 full, but I had a horrible overflowing burned mess in the bottom of my oven. The bread never set and the edges were burned after 45 minutes. What is cooked nicely is very good, so I am sure that the problems with this are mine since others have had success with this recipe. I'll keep trying! Made for PAC Spring '11.
