I Do…Banana Bread…

My Mom’s FAMOUS Banana Bread…with a few little extra Kerry touches :)…aka sweeter!!

Being an adult and living away from home always has it perks, but every once in a while I cannot help but really miss those warm feelings I like to call MOM!!  🙂  Which I would also like to take the opportunity and point out that my mom who I love so much, has still not read a single blog posting of mine, even though I have mentioned it about 100 times.  She has even joked she could start her own blog “Been There, Done That.”  Quite clever that mom of mine lol.

Well I found myself last week just missing being home with my family (My mom, my Dad, my little brother and my two sisters).  When I just thought well if I cannot be home, at least my home can smell like my moms :).  So I decided to open my recipe book and there it was, my moms banana bread recipe.  And it just so happened I had a few bananas that were on their way out.

Here is the recipe I followed:

  • 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup of mashed bananas (2-3 bananas)
  •  2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • Brown Sugar (Kerry’s added ingredient)
  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Grease 9x5x3 baking dish.
  3. Mix sugar and butter in large bowl with electric mixer.
  4. Add in bananas and lemon juice.
  5. Add milk and eggs.
  6. Sift in flour, baking soda and baking powder.
  7. Blend well.
  8. Stir in nuts.
  9. Pour into baking dish.
  10. I then cover the top in dark brown sugar…yum :).
  11. Bake for 35-40 minutes.  (It always takes me 70 minutes exactly!!)

Here are a few photos:





And my husband thought it would be a fun and fabulous idea to show what I actually look like when I am cooking.  LOL…aka…not showered on a Sunday morning, with my hair fresh off the pillow :).

If you like banana bread, then definitely give this recipe a try.  It is wonderful!!  And please, let me know if you do :).  (Mom, if you read this, thank you for FINALLY READING!!…I love you!!).
