About the Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 ripe bananas

  • 1 tablespoon milk

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preparation

Step 1


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.


Step 2


Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 


Step 3


In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 


Step 4


Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears. 


Step 5


Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.


Step 6


Spread slices with honey or serve with ice cream.
