The Best Banana Cake/Bread Recipe I've ever made!
January 31, 2007 12:59am CST
I made this cake 4 days ago, as much as Ive wanted to eat it all, it made a huge cake which unbelievably is still as fresh as it was when I pulled it out of the oven. So I thought I have to share this recipe. Banana Bread 4 large Banana's (use old ones) 2 cups Self Rasing Flour 1 cup Sugar 1/2 cup Oil 2 eggs Mash the banana's with a fork Stir in the flour, sugar, oil and eggs. Mix thoroughly. Put mixture into a greased and floured pan, or place straight into a spring form pan (I used a large one). Bake for an hour @ 325.F or until golden brown. Serve with butter. You could also add 1/2 cup walnuts if you wanted but I didnt.

Thats seems real easy. I hope it tastes as good as it sounds. The only problem I have is I don't have any self rising flour. I think someone posted a recipe to make your own awhile back and I can't find it. But thanks for the recipe anyway. My son loves banana bread.

Im so glad you tried it. I promise never to post a recipe I haven't tried and it'll always be an old favourite of my household and even better as easy as possible. Its so great to hear when someone has actually used a recipe of mine, my girlfriend is always asking for more as they are so easy and the taste is absolutely gorgeous. I can verify that www.preparedpantry.com does have great e-books, I subscribed over a year a go and love getting their updates, they have so many excellent recipes it truly is a great source for baking techniques and recipes, I do suggest everyone signing up for the updates etc.

Sultana's and raisins or any other dried fruit could be added. I have eaten Banana bread with sultana's in before but I prefer to eat both walnuts and sultana's out of the packet and dont like them in cooked foods so always omit them. Thanks for the extra suggestion, it certainly gives others idea's on what else they can add to such a basic recipe to make it more interesting.

It sure is an easy recipe, I even let my kids make it as so simple it makes minimal mess. Although you can freeze it, it doesnt taste as nice as it does when fresh and after its defrosted it is extremely squishy. But I found it can sit in a sealed container for 5 days before it starts to go stale (that's if its not all eaten before hand). So if its not eaten by then you could possibly freeze it then and when your in the mood next to have some custard take it out of the freezer to eat with it.

Its great when you can find a simple recipe and it tastes to so yumm. And this one sure does. I had some old banana's which had started to go funny so didnt want to waste them by giving them to the chooks so what better way than to make some bread/cake with mmmm, it was worth it.
