Banana Bread

Banana Bread

You cannot have too many recipes for banana bread. I like to try new ones all the time. Of course, what makes a superior banana bread is how ripe are. Some people make the mistake of using bananas that are not quite ready to use in baked goods.

This is a very easy recipe that anyone can make, even my dad. When I visited my parents my mom said: ''Guess who made dessert today? Your dad! He made your recipe for banana bread.'' If my dad can make it, anyone can, and it's nice to see him bake now. He worked really hard on the farm when I was young and never had time to cook or bake. I was the one helping my mom in the kitchen and also my dad outside. After he retired, he started to help my mom in the kitchen. Now he is always proud when I go home and he makes something sweet for me. The recipe that I am sharing today is not the one I gave my dad but a new one. It's moist and it's even better the next day. I keep my banana bread on the counter and wrap it with foil overnight. My son loves to take a piece with him on his way to a hockey game.


3 ripe bananas, mashed
50 ml sugar
75 ml butter, melted
60 ml corn syrup

    1. I like sweets and always try new recipes Debbie.

  3. I love banana bread, and like to try different recipes, but my mother makes one that I do not like at all, but she just loves it, so yes each to their own and all banana bread recipes are different!!

  4. I love the way you put the banana slices on top of the banana bread. Is it just sliced bananas or did you add a glaze or something?

  5. So right, you can NEVER have too many recipes for banana bread! I cannot wait to try your recipe, perhaps I will even get my husband to try baking for once.
