So it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything new mostly since I’ve been super busy with school, work, and moving. But I’m all settled now and have one glorious week off from EVERYTHING. It’s amazing. Anyway, I decided that I was in serious need of comfort and banana bread is one of the few things that provides significant amounts. So here is possibly the best banana breads I’ve ever made.
Late Night Comfort Banana Bread
2 Cups of Flour
1 Tsp baking powder
2 Tsp baking soda
1 Tsp salt
½ Tsp Cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
¼ Cup vegetable oil
1 Cup sugar
1 Tsp vanilla
1 Cup buttermilk
2 ½ super ripe bananas (eat the other half), mashed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two loaf pans and set aside
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in medium bowl. Stir with whisk to incorporate.
In separate (large) bowl mix together butter, oil, and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and buttermilk until just combined.
Gradually add flour mixture to buttermilk mixture. Stir with wooden spoon until just incorporated. Do not overmix.
Add mashed bananas and stir.
Pour into loaf pans and bake until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. 45 minutes or so.
