Basic Banana Bread

I can’t imagine talking about comfort food without talking about BANANA BREAD. I love a good ole moist banana bread. This bread is very moist and has a fanatic flavor and texture. Need I say more? Okay I will! I love Banana Bread but not when it’s bland or dry. Good thing this recipe is anything but that!!  You NEED to make it and honestly it’s really easy.

Gather your ingredients

Peel your bananas and then MASH away. (I broke mine so they would be easier to mash.)

Cream the bananas, shortening, buttermilk, baking soda and sugar.

Once you’ve finished creaming everything together       add in flour and salt. Mix together and your banana bread dough is done!

This is also the point in which you would add your nuts if that is something you desire. However I’m not a nut person so I decided to say goodbye to the nuts.



Grease you’re your pans up and split the dough between them.

Because I skipped out on the nuts, I thought that milk chocolate and white chocolate chips would be a worthy substitute!

I really wanted to try white chocolate chips with macadamia nuts, unfortunately I didn’t have macadamias on hand so that will have to wait till next time, which honestly won’t be long!

 Bake them and TA-DA


This bread is fantastic by itself, but if you are like me then you will probably top it off with a spread of butter!

Until next time
