Banana Bread

Maria generously agreed to share the recipe for the delicious banana bread she brought for dessert at Dinner Church last week. So good!


  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts/chocolate chunks optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Sift together dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture alternately with banana blending well after each addition. Stir in nuts if desired (I threw in chocolate chunks this past Sunday) . Pour into well-greased  loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until done. Remove from pan and cool on rack.
