Banana Bread

Banana Bread created by Outta Here

This is a really moist and tasty banana bread that I've made for years. I got the recipe from my mother-in-law. Update 8/2/07: I have omitted the baking powder from this recipe since the original did not include it; it was not accidentally left out. It is my opinion that banana bread is a quick bread and, therefore, is not supposed to rise like a yeast bread.

    Very rich and moist! I subbed Splenda for half of the sugar. I used buttermilk powder (I buy it in a tub) and water. Great flavor. Because of the butter, this is a little too high in fat to be my regular banana bread, but as a special treat, it will be made again!

    I had buttermilk and ripe banana's to use up, so this recipe was calling my name. The taste is great and texture is just right... its only about 2 inches thick. I think next time I'd use mini bread pans to help these loaves appear a little larger

    The bread has a very good taste and good texture. I did only 1 loaf. And I used margarine. It said 3/4 cup of sugar for half the recipe and I used 1/2 cup (perfect, not too sweet). I used 1/2 tsp of baking powder (same amount of baking soda). It didn't rise more than the photo here. So maybe we can omit it, it won't change a thing LOL I omitted the nuts. Thanks Lainey.
