Mom’s Banana Bread

A simple recipe that was always a favorite. It takes easily to conversion to a vegan version and is also delicious with a few chopped walnuts and/or raisins added.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup milk, soured with 1 tsp vinegar

Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and stir till smooth. Add flour and baking soda. Mash bananas and add, alternating with milk. Bake 1 hour at 350 F.

Vegan substitutions:

Use 1/3 cup coconut oil instead of the butter, almond milk instead of regular milk, and replace the eggs with 1 T finely ground flax seed and 3 T of water per egg (soak the flax seed in water for a few minutes until thickened before adding to the recipe).
