  • ISO of TNT banana bread recipe

    I have bananas that are over ripe and would like to make banana bread.  Looking for plain recipes, not banana choc. chip, etc. 

    Any recipes would be appreciated!

    I don't think I've seen one with my mom's "secret ingredient" (orange juice). EVERY time I make this people ask for the recipe. Not that you can go wrong with any kind of banana bread! It is extremely moist and yummy! Kim

    Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Sour Cream Banana Bread by DivaSharon

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees

    3 cups flour
    1 cup white sugar
    ½ cup light brown sugar
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    ¾ tsp. salt
    1 ½ tsp. baking powder
    1 ½ tsp. baking soda
    3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
    3 eggs
    2 tsp. vanilla
    ¾ cup orange juice
    4 HEAPING TBSP. (1/2 cup) sour cream
    3-4 very ripe bananas
    1 ½ cups chopped nuts (optional)

    Combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine beaten eggs, oil, vanilla, orange juice and sour cream. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and mix in liquid ingredients. In small bowl, mash bananas with fork. Continue with hand mixer until pureed and as smooth as possible. Add to batter. Stir in nuts, if desired.

    Grease two 9”x5” loaf pans with cooking spray. Divide batter evenly. Pans will be about ¾ full. Bake for 45-50 minutes, checking after 35 minutes with wooden pick. Bread is done when pick comes out slightly wet, not too dry! Do not overbake! Cool in pans for 15 minutes, remove to wire rack and continue to cool. Wrap in plastic when almost cool. Bread will be moister the next day and be shiny/sticky on top.

    I'm not sure who posted this but I'ts the best banana bread I've ever eaten.

     Indescribably Delicious Banana Bread
    AKA Praline Soaked Banana Bread

    This is outstanding and makes two large loaves and I always ending up giving one to a neighbor. The topping is what really makes this so delicious. It truly is indescribable and comes from one of my favorite cookbooks, Necessities & Temptations from the Junior League of Austin. Enjoy! :O)

    Topping, put on after baking:

    6 tablespoons butter
    10 tablespoons dark brown sugar
    5 tablespoons milk
    1 cup or more, chopped pecans


    1 cup butter
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    2 large eggs
    4 very ripe bananas, mashed * or 1 3/4 cup mashed bananas
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    4 tablespoons buttermilk
    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt

    Preheat oven to 350° F.

    Cream butter and sugar. Mash bananas, beat 2 eggs and add to the bananas with vanilla and buttermilk; mix well and add to creamed butter and sugar.

    Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to banana mixture, beat well.

    Pour into 2 greased and floured 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pans.

    Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until bread pulls away from sides of pan. Cool.

    To prepare Topping:

    Melt butter in saucepan. Add sugar and milk. Cook until very syrupy. Remove from heat and add chopped pecans. Pour over bread spreading to all the corners and place under broiler until bubbly and brown. Watch closely.

    Yield=2 loaves
