banana bread



BANANA BREAD
(makes 4 mini loaves)

2 1/2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. oil
3/4 c. milk
1 egg
3 ripe bananas, mashed
chopped nuts or chocolate chips (optional)

Combine all ingredients (except nuts or chocolate chips) in a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed for about one minute. Then add the nuts or chocolate chips (I'm all about adding the chocolate!) and stir them in with a spoon. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350.

This recipe makes 4 mini loaves (I love the Pampered Chef mini loaf pan that's a baking stone). You could also pour the mixture into a mini muffin pan. If you do the mini muffins, they only need about 10 minutes in the oven. Or you could do one large loaf of banana bread and that would take about an hour to bake.

Yummy! Becky I just tried these with my kids. They got to smash the banana's and thought that was so much fun! We did mini-muffins and some regular muffins, but I think the chocolate chips are what did it for my kids! Thanks for sharing a quick & easy recipe!

My daughter & I just made these yesterday and I too let her help by mashing up the banana's. I did one large loaf and it was a hit. We opted for no nuts or chocolate chips and it was delish!! Thx

Hello! I'm from Slovenia and I would love to try this recipe, but I don't know what does c. (example 3/4 c. milk) stand for.
Please help me.

Dear Anonymous,
Our recipes use the letter c. as in 3/4 c. this means "cup"
1 cup = 8 oz ( ounces)

Hope this helps.
