“He who has no bread has no authority.” -Turkish Proverb
I make really, really good banana bread.
- 1 and 1/2 cups bread flour
- 2 medium bananas, preferably very ripe
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup Crisco
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix together dry ingredients and then add wet ingredients. Mix together thoroughly. Batter should be the consistency of a thick cake batter.
Grease a bread pan and pour batter into pan.
Bake for 45 minutes.
You can substitute 1 – 1 and ½ cups of shredded zucchini in place of the bananas if you prefer.
To make a vegan version, try using an egg substitute or replace the eggs with an extra banana.
A large handful of pecans or walnuts can add a tasty crunch.
