This very easy banana bread recipe is one that I received at my wedding shower before I knew how to cook more than mac and cheese. It is foolproof for almost anyone! A very tasty snack, or “on the go” meal.
Easy Banana Bread
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (appox. 3 large bananas)
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup soft margarine
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9×5 loaf pan.
On wax paper, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
In small bowl, mix bananas, milk, and vanilla until blended.
In large bowl, beat sugar and margarine at low speed until blended. Increase speed to high and beat 2 additional minutes. Reduce speed to low and add eggs, beating well.
Alternately beat in flour mixture and banana mixture, beginning and ending with flour.
Spoon batter into loaf pan and spread evenly.
Bake 65 to 70 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

Remove bread from pan, allow to cool, and serve!
