Nana’s No Butter Banana Bread

Posted by on Feb 13, 2013 in Breads, Breakfast, Cooking, Featured


This is my all time favorite banana bread recipe!  It is moist and flavorful and turns out great every time I make it.  Not to mention my house smells amazing when it is baking!  I got this recipe from my mother in law a few years back and have made it countless times since.  I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!

Nana’s No Butter Banana Bread

1/2 cup of vegetable oil

1 cup of brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla

4 ripe bananas, mashed

2 cups of flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1/2 teaspoon of salt

3 tablespoons of milk

1/2 cup of walnuts, pecans or other nuts of choice (optional)

cinnamon and nutmeg for sprinkling on top (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a loaf pan.  Beat oil and brown sugar and thoroughly blended.  Beat in eggs, vanilla, and banana, stopping to scrape bowl as needed.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add flour mixture to wet ingredients and blend.  (It will look a little lumpy)  Add milk and beat just until combined.  Stir in nuts if you’re using them.  Pour mixture into greased loaf pan and sprinkle top with cinnamon and nutmeg.  Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Let sit for 10 minutes and enjoy!
