Happy National Banana Bread Day!


Banana bread is one of my favorite comfort foods. It is so versatile and can be eaten at almost anytime of day. When I’m running late, I have yogurt and a slice of banana bread for lunch. It’s also a good snack idea when those hunger pangs hit in mid afternoon.

Try this quick, easy-to-prepare recipe:


1¾ cups all-purpose flour, sifted
2¼ tsp double acting baking powder
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup margarine
2/3 cup sugar
¾ tsp grated lemon rind
2 eggs, beaten
1¼ cups ripe banana pulp


• Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
• Resift flour, baking powder, and salt together.
• In a separate bowl, blend the margarine, sugar and lemon rind until creamy. Beat in the eggs and banana pulp.
• Add the sifted ingredients in 3 parts to the sugar mixture.
• Beat the batter until smooth.
• Place the batter in a greased bread pan.
• Bake the bread for about one hour or until done.
• Cool before slicing.

  1. I too love banana bread. The thing is that I’m not too crazy about bananas – they have to be a certain firmness and ripeness – and so I seldom have them hanging around the house to use to make banana bread.
