FLUFFY BANANA BREAD

July 7, 2014
Rachel Schultz

Once I’ve created a recipe to my liking and snapped photos for the blog, I usually don’t think about that dish for a while and move on to the next creation. With this banana bread, that was not the case. I successfully “wrapped” the recipe and yet went on to make it three times in one week. For one, it’s that good. For two, I fail at buying and eating bananas during the appropriate ripeness window. (Avocados too!) So, banana bread naturally happens quite a bit now.

You’ve been there. We’ve all been there. It’s a good problem to have.

Fluffy Banana Bread
Makes two loaves

1 cup sugar
5 ripe bananas
4 eggs
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 and 1/2 cups flour
1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Place sugar and bananas in a stand mixer and mash.

Mix in eggs, vegetable oil, milk, baking soda, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and flour. Fold in chocolate chips (optional).

Transfer batter to a greased loaf pan. Bake for about 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

    I’ve been making a lot of banana bread too! I use my husband’s great grandmother’s recipe, which is similar to this one. However, I’m naughty and use coconut oil, brown sugar, and rum instead of vanilla,sugar and vegetable oil…..
