The most delicious, moist, melt-in-your-mouth banana bread you will ever eat!
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • 4 large, ripened bananas, mashed
  • 7 mini disposable loaf pans ( you can find these in most grocery stores, I bought mine at Wal-Mart) OR you can use two ( 9x5x3 inch) loaf pans
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 7 mini loaf pans onto a large cookie sheet. Grease each of the loaf pans with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a seperate large bowl, add the beaten eggs, butter, buttermilk and mashed bananas. Mix together with an electric hand-mixer on low speed, just until combined. Or you can use a whisk and stir by hand until combined.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet mixture. Stir until just combined. Pour one cupfuls of batter evenly into each mini loaf pan. If there is any batter leftover divide it evenly among pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes. (If using regular-size loaf pans bake for 55 - 65 minutes.)
  5. Remove from oven and let cool before serving. Enjoy!
Yields: 7 mini loaf pans or 2 regular size loaf pans.
