Best Banana Bread
Make a loaf one of these rainy April afternoons! Here's how:
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. mashed bananas (about 2 large bananas)
1/4 c. milk
1 t. lemon juice (I like to be a little generous with this, I think it's the secret ingredient)
2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
* Sometimes we like to add chocolate chips, too, but then it feels really sinful to eat it for breakfast the next morning...so, think on that one...
Cream butter and sugar
Add eggs and mix
Add bananas, milk and lemon juice
Sift dry ingredients & add nuts
Bake at 350 in well greased loaf pan for 1 hour.
