Banana Bread

This isn’t my favorite banana bread recipe. I’m hunting for the perfect banana bread recipe. I want it to be MOIST and FLAVORFUL and also simple – not with separate egg whites and yolks and all kinds of “extras.” Is it a tall order? I guess we’ll see. If you have a winning recipe, feel free to post a comment with a link to it, or let me know what it is.

1/4 cup soft butter

1/2 cup honey

2 eggs

1 cup mashed banana

3/4 cup buttermilk or 6oz pineapple juice

1 tsp vanilla

3 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

Place butter in large mixing bowl. With a wire whisk, blend in honey, eggs, banana, buttermilk/juice, and vanilla one at a time in order listed. Place flour in a medium mixing bowl. Thoroughly blend in cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Blend dry ingredients into liquid ingredients just until mixed. Scoop batter into greased loaf pan. Bake at 325*F for 70 minutes or until a table knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
