Yummy Banana Bread


  • 3 or 4 SUPER ripe bananas, mashed with a potato masher
  • 1/3 cup salad oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • LG Pinch of salt
  • cinnamon and nutmeg to taste (optional)
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour, sifted


No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix oil into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda, salt and (optional) spices over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix well, but gently. Pour mixture into a greased and floured (I use PAM for baking) 5x9 inch loaf pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
