Grandma Marcella Jane's Banana Bread

We virtually normally have more than ripe bananas in our kitchen, so this household recipe is normally currently being made in our property. I love to make it in particular all over the holidays when the young ones are household, the tree lights are on, and holiday getaway audio is participating in in the background. There is a little something so comforting about baking a delightful recipe with the smells of vanilla and sugar during the household with new music participating in.

All through the holiday period, I will also make this for neighbors or close friends we are going to with. It is the least complicated recipe, and a complete crowd pleaser for both breakfast or an afternoon snack! Add some chocolate chips, nuts or craisins for some additional deliciousness and crunch. Wrap the bread in parchment with some baking twine and a cinnamon adhere on top rated for a lovely, tasty reward.

Here’s our go-to loved ones banana bread recipe by my grandmother Marcella Jane. I hope it gets to be a spouse and children favourite of your very own, and is loved by a lot of this vacation period!


8 more than ripe bananas

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup margarine or butter

4 eggs

4 cups flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 tbsp vanilla

8 tbsp milk


Incorporate sugars and butter and conquer right until creamy.

Insert in eggs, flour, baking soda, vanilla, and milk. Mix nicely.

Mash bananas and include to the mixture. *Suggestion: Normally freeze more than ripe bananas for later use!

Fill loaf pans 3/4 of the way full and bake at 350 degrees for a single hour.

Yields two standard sized loaf pans. One particular for you, and a person for a buddy!
