Grandma’s Banana Bread

I'm Erin Allmann. I love family, friends and food. A lot. I live in a teeny, tiny apartment in a place called Paradise with a wonderful boyfriend named Brett who cooks much better than I do. We both happen to be fantastic at eating and whenever we're not doing so, (which isn't all that often), we try to stay occupied outdoors. We're also two of the biggest nerds you can ever find, so excuse the occasional o-chem, bio, Harry Potter, or Star Wars reference.

This banana bread recipe was my grandma’s. My mom still has a copy of the recipe that my grandma wrote on a card for her. It’s a small card, with cramped writing, spotted with years of batter droplets.

It’s the best. And I love it. And it smells like home and family and bananas and bread and sweet and yummy.. and so I’m telling you about it. Turns out, you can make it in the Bullet with the blender attachment. Who knew?

Grandma’s Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 2-3 bananas (or 4 if you’re using apple bananas like me!)
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a loaf pan. Blend up bananas, oil, and sugar. Add in eggs and blend for just a couple seconds, until beaten. Add in dry ingredients and pulse to mix, scraping the sides as necessary until just mixed together. (If you have the blender attachment, you can make the entire bread in it; if you don’t, just mix up all the wet ingredients and pour them into the dry ingredients in a bowl.)
  2. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 min-1 hour, until toothpick comes out clean. Cool before eating (but it’s delicious warm with butter!)
