Banana Bread Recipe

While cleaning up the kitchen tonight, I noticed a bunch of bananas that seemed about on the brink of organizing a communist takeover of their area of the counter, so I thought I'd make some banana bread.  Here's the recipe:

Dry Ingredients:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp each of cloves, ginger, and nutmeg


Wet ingredients:

1 egg
3 to 4 bananas, thoroughly mashed
3/4 cup sugar
scant 1/4 cup of cooking oil.  Less if you add an extra banana
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans, if desired
1/4 tsp bourbon, almond extract, or vanilla extract

Sift all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well

Mix all of the wet ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix well.  Scrape the side of the bowl as necessary.  Once the mixture is even and lump free, pour into a greased loaf pan.

Bake in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 45 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Allow to cool for 15 minutes on a rack before removing from pan and finishing cooling.

Wonderful with butter.
