Banana Bread Wars or Bake off? A Tale of Two Loaves! Part 2

Here is Cherise's Banana Bread recipe.  It is a very moist, flavorful bread with lots of cinnamon and Granny  Smith apple bits, as well as bananas.  Now you can have your very own Banana Bread Wars or Bake Off?  You can decide, but one thing is for sure, there will plenty of very good tasting breads.  Let the baking begin!

Cherises's Banana Bread

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 bananas
2 tsp cinnamon
1 large Granny Smith apple
1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Using electric mixer, beat oil and sugar together until blended in large mixing bowl.  Add eggs and milk to oil; beat well.

Sift flour, baking soda, and baking powder together.  Add to egg mixture amd mix until well blended.
In separate bowl, mash bananas with cinnamon.

Peel and core apple; chop into tiny pieces (about 1/2 bits).
Add apple bits to banana cinnamon mixture.  Add banana mixture to batter and mix until well blended.

Pour batter into well greased and flour bottom only 9x5x3 pan.  Bake 45-50 min, until pick until in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 10 min., invert and cool on rack.  Enjoy!


  1. It looks wonderful. I love banana bread but ours never last long enough to get to that perfect mashing stage. I guess that's why I have zucchini bread in the oven right now!

  2. Sometimes I buy the over ripe bananas at the store. You can freeze then also, when they are yellow and speckled. Zucchini bread is
    good, too.
