The Best Banana Bread is at the Parish House Inn bed and breakfast



This is the easiest and best banana bread recipe ever.

2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
¾ stick butter, cut into 6 pieces (room temp is best)
1 ¼ cups banana (3 medium) cut into chunks
2 eggs
1 cup walnuts ( or any nut or none)
1 ½ cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350o. Coat a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

Insert metal blade into work bowl. Into bowl put sugar, lemon juice and butter. Process until well mixed, 30 seconds. Scrape down sides.

Add banana and process until smooth, 15 seconds. Add eggs and process 15 seconds. Add Walnuts and pulse 3 times.

In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the bowl and turn on and off until flour disappears.

Turn batter into prepared pan and bake about 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely before wrapping and storing. It just keeps getting better with age....enjoy!
