Banana Bread

A good way to use up ripe bananas is to bake banana bread. There are many wonderful recipes for Banana Bread. This egg-less version is one I that I adapted from a recipe book. It works really well and you will be sure to get tasty banana bread that is well baked. You can either bake it in a loaf pan or in muffin pans.

I enjoy eating banana bread, sliced with a spread of butter or margarine, and a hot cup of tea. This recipe calls for walnuts. You may ignore the nuts, substitute other nuts or use raisins instead. This recipe is suitable for Vegans as well as it is made without the use of any dairy products.

Be sure to lightly dab the baking pan with oil before you add the dough.

Remember to use oven gloves or dish cloths to hold hot items from the oven. When cool, serve plain, or with butter (the vegan type if you prefer that) & enjoy with tea or your favorite beverage.

Here is the recipe for Banana Bread


  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. ¼ tsp. salt
  3. 3 tsps/15 ml. baking powder
  4. 2 large ripe bananas or 3 medium bananas
  5. ½ cup (or less) brown sugar
  6. ½ cup oil
  7. ½ cup chopped walnuts


  1. Sift numbers 1-3
  2. Cream oil & sugar (use a whisk or beater)
  3. Mash bananas until smooth
  4. Add flour mix to oil mix. Add bananas and walnuts. Stir until batter is well mixed and smooth.
  5. If dough is too dry add small amounts of water
  6. Lightly oil a 9"x5" loaf pan. Add dough to pan. Bake at 350° for approximately 45 minutes
  7. When the top is a deep brown, open oven door and insert a skewer or butter knife into banana bread. If it comes out clean it is done. If there is dough on the skewer, leave in oven a few more minutes & test again
  8. Allow to cool before removing from baking pan
  9. To easily lift bread, run a spatula around the pan edges taking care not to poke into the bread. This should loosen the bread which you can gently lift out or turn upside down gently and tap on bottom to remove
  10. Slice and serve plain or with a topping of butter
