Banana Bread


Prep Time:

30 minutes

Cooking Time:

18-60 minutes



A perfect morning treat for the family.


  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups white wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Begin by preheating the oven to 350°F and greasing your baking tin(s). Next, add the lemon juice to the milk, stir and set aside. It will curdle, but don't worry because this is good!


Cream together the butter and sugar.  If you are not sure how long this will take, do it a little longer than you think.

Then stir in the eggs and bananas to the creamed mixture. Mix in one cup of flour, the baking soda, and salt. 


Add the milk & lemon juice that you set aside at the beginning. Mix again. Add the rest of the flour and mix for the last time until blended. Be careful not to overmix.

Pour the mixture into your pan and bake until edges are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.  Use the cooking times listed below as a guideline, but remember that the bread continues to cook a bit after removing it from the oven.  An overcooked bread is a terrible thing!


For a single loaf pan, bake for 60-70 minutes.

For three miniature loaves, bake for 40 minutes.

For muffins, bake 18 minutes.

And voila – you have heart-warming (and tummy-warming) banana bread that will go perfectly with your morning cup of coffee!
