Banana Bread *new recipe*
I saw this recipe made on Cooks Country and just had to try it. One of the best I've made thus far. It's delicious and sooooooooooooo moist. The trick is cooking the banana's and then thickening the juice you get. And I might add it looks so pretty when it's done with the Banana's lined on each side and the crystal look of the sugar on top.
5 ripe bananas + 1/2 banana for slicing not over ripe
1 3/4 cup AP flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 stick melted butter (I use unsalted butter)
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cp brown sugar
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)
white sugar for sprinkling on top
Spray loaf pan and set aside. Heat oven to 350
Heat banana's in microwave in dish covered with plastic and poke holes in top for steam to escape. Drain liquid and the cook this until it reduces to 1/4 cup takes about 5 minutes, let it cool.
Mash the banana and mix that and cooled liquid with the melted butter, vanilla, eggs and brown sugar. In another bowl combine dry ingredients. Mix dry ingredients with banana mixture but do not over mix. Fold in nuts.
Pour into pan and slice 1/2 banana thin and lay along each side. Sprinkle sugar on top and bake for about 1 hr. Rotate 1/2 way through. Enjoy
Hope you try this one, it's really great and very moist.
