    SB look up Flour's recipe on foodtv.com. Flour is a bakery that is apparently known for its banana bread. I've made it a handful of times and my kids love it. I butter the pan and then give it a.thin coat of sugar to give the crust a.nice.little.crunch.

    I'm posting this one because I now love her blog because the first cupcakes I ever baked are from her recipe.

    I just made this today:

    Banana Bread


    1-c. sugar
    ½-c. butter, softened
    3-T. sour cream
    3 mashed bananas
    1-t. soda
    2-c. flour
    pinch salt
    1-c. nuts(optional)

    Mix the sour cream and baking soda together, then set aside. Mix the bananas, softened butter, and sugar together and beat until light and fluffy. Stir in the flour and salt until just blended. Don't over mix or it will be tough. Gradually stir in the baking soda/sour cream mixture, and again, stir in until just blended. If using nuts, gently mix in. Bake in a greased loaf pan for 1 hour at 325F.

    I looked up the Flour recipe and thought I'd post it:

    Ingredients
    1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup oil
    3 1/2 bananas, very ripe, mashed
    2 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2/3 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
    Directions
    Set oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper.

    Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Beat sugar and eggs with a whisk until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Drizzle in oil. Add mashed bananas, creme fraiche, and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients and nuts. Pour into a lined loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

    I use a Nigella recipe for banana bread. It contains espresso powder so she calls it an 'Italian Breakfast Banana Bread' but I eat it whenever I want

    150ml flavourless veg oil (plus some for greasing)
    3 medium, very ripe bananas (approx 400g with skin, 300g without skin)
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    pinch of salt
    2 eggs
    150g caster sugar
    175g plain flour
    1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda
    4 teaspoons instant espresso powder

    1 X 460g/1LB deep loaf tin


    Preheat oven to 170oC/gas mark 3 and put baking sheet into the oven (I preheat oven but I don't bother with a baking sheet)
    Line or lightly grease loaf tin
    Mash the bananas with vanilla extract and salt then beat in the oil
    Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the sugar
    Mix the flour with the bicarb and espresso powder and then beat these ingredients into the runny batter
    Pour batter into loaf tin and bake for 50-60mins or until cake tester comes out clean etc.

    She recommends leaving the bread alone for 1/2 day or a day as it tastes better if left.

    Yum to all these recipes. Had to look up caster sugar; at first, thought it may be what confectiiner's sugar is called in the UK, but looks like it's what we call table sugar. Wonder how it got its name of caster?

    Nigella uses vegetable oil in baking instead of butter? That's shocking!!!



    SB - I always use the most raw sugar I can find - molasses type, it gives a dark colour and if you toast the banana bread gives a little crispy crust to each side.

    I use a variation; banana cornbread. Love it. I found a recipe on allrecipes.com that is very good, but I can't open the link for some reason.
