Home Run Banana Bread
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 9 ripe, preferably blackened, bananas – mashed
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • Variety of nuts, chocolate/candy chips for stirring into batter.
  1. In large bowl of stand mixer (at least 5 quarts), mix on low: sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Blend until light and fluffy. Add in bananas and blend until thoroughly incorporated.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add to stand mixer ingredients, blending between each addition, and until all flour mixture is added to batter.
  3. Divide batter into four bread pans that have been prepared by lightly greasing or lining with parchment paper. Sprinkle a handful (or two, it’s up to you!) of your favourite nuts, chocolate or candy chips. Stir into batter to distribute morsels throughout.
  4. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Immediately turn out from pans and allow to cool on wire racks before slicing. Wrap and freeze for future use or spread some sweetness by sharing with someone special!
