“Saving My Bananas” Banana Bread Loaf

Bananas ripen fast during summer…and when they really turn brown and unappealing…then mashing these very ripe bananas just would be the next best thing to do, throw in some few more ingredients and voila…Banana Bread.




1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
3 very, very ripe bananas, peeled and mashed

In a large mixing bowl, aerate together flour, baking soda, salt, sugar with a wire whisk (you may need to sift to make sure no large mass of brown sugar in the mix) .  In a medium bowl, beat together to blend well the eggs, oil, mashed bananas and condensed milk.   Blend dry and liquid ingredients until just mixed.   Pour batter into greased and lined with parchment paper 9 x 5 loaf pan.  Bake at 350 F for 60 to 70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean.

  1. OR…..substitute the sweetened condensed milk with 1/4 cup sour cream AND 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (preferably the real thing)

    • hi jim! great to add sour cream…but the reason why I added condensed milk was to add more sweeteness…the bananas were fully ripe but just lacking sweetness. and my friends loved this bread. Hope you make it soon. Enjoy!
