I try to eat a banana every day to help maintain a good potassium level. I’m a fan of bananas but they always seem to ripen way before I can eat all of them in a hand. (If you did not know, a cluster of up to 20 bananas is called a hand. Hey, I try and teach when writing my blog posts.)Anyway, this past weekend I had three very rip bananas I did not want to toss in the garbage. I looked for recipes that required bananas and decided to make a banana bread. When I think of banana bread, I think of fall or the holidays but I wanted it, so I made it.

This delicious banana bread recipe can be found in Grit Magazine’s Comfort Food Cookbook. The book recommends you use very ripe bananas for the best flavor. The bananas I used must have been very ripe because the bread tasted amazing!

I don’t think I know of anyone that doesn’t like banana bread. Make it for the holidays, as a treat for the kids on a rainy weekend, or bring it as a dessert to a cookout; it’s a guaranteed party pleaser!

1½ cups self-rising flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
3 to 4 ripe bananas
2 eggs
½ cup pure lard or butter
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4). Grease and flour a 9 x 5 x 4-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas; set aside. In another bowl, beat the eggs until light; set aside. In a large bowl, cream the lard or butter with the brown sugar for 3 minutes. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well. Fold in the mashed bananas and pecans. Add the combined dry ingredients and mix just until moistened. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
