Banana Bread: This is the only recipe you will want to try from my Mother-In-Law's cookbook

Late last week, my 17 year old walked into the house with a grocery bag filled with brownish bananas. "Mom, please make me some banana bread."  He said with the big puppy eyes.

Of course, I couldn't say no to him.  After all, he went out and got the major ingredient.  Now, yes he is capable of baking it himself, but I know that it is not the same as when mom makes it.  At least, that's what I would like to think.  I think of his request as one of the spontaneous hugs I used to get from him.

This is one of my family's favorite legacies from their grandmother who passed away last April.  Fortunately, she created a cookbook for me so her recipes could be passed on to future generations.  I told you about this in this blog post:Big Brownies: My Mother-in-Law's Cookbook

Above is a picture of her original recipe.  I think her side notes are cute.

Major ingredients above.  I use 1/2 wheat flour and 1/2 white.  I only use 2/3s of the sugar and it tastes just fine.

Three loaves will probably last us two days...maybe.  I will limit myself to one slice.  With butter.  



  1. Looks good! When my eighteen year old asks for something like that, I think he only going to be around a few months longer. He leaves for college in about five months. I love making things for him anyway!

  2. It's the same in our house with banana bread. It lasts two days tops, with the majorty gone by bedtime the day I make it. Newest follower from Mom's Monday Mingle,
