The Best Banana Bread is at the Parish House Inn bed and breakfast

Posted by: Martha Cleary


This is the easiest and
best banana bread recipe ever.
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
¾ stick butter, cut into 6
pieces (room temp is best)
1 ¼ cups banana (3 medium)
cut into chunks
2 eggs
1 cup walnuts ( or any nut
or none)
1 ½ cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350o. Coat a
9x5x3 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
Insert metal blade into work
bowl. Into bowl put sugar, lemon juice and butter. Process until well
mixed, 30 seconds. Scrape down sides.
Add banana and process until
smooth, 15 seconds. Add eggs and process 15 seconds. Add Walnuts and
pulse 3 times.
In a small bowl combine
flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the bowl and turn
on and off until flour disappears.
Turn batter into prepared
pan and bake about 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the
center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes.
Remove from pan and cool completely before wrapping and storing. It
just keeps getting better with age….enjoy!
