Grandma Marcella Jane’s Banana Bread

We virtually at all times have over ripe bananas in our kitchen, so this household recipe is commonly being made in our home. I like to make it particularly across the holidays when the children are dwelling, the tree lights are on, and vacation music is taking part in within the background. There’s one thing so comforting about baking a scrumptious recipe with the smells of vanilla and sugar all through the home with music taking part in.

In the course of the vacation season, I can even make this for neighbors or buddies we’re visiting with. It’s the best recipe, and a complete crowd pleaser for both breakfast or a day snack! Add some chocolate chips, nuts or craisins for some further deliciousness and crunch. Wrap the bread in parchment with some baking twine and a cinnamon stick on prime for an exquisite, scrumptious present.

Right here’s our go-to household banana bread recipe by my grandmother Marcella Jane. I hope it turns into a household favourite of your personal, and is loved by many this vacation season!


8 over ripe bananas

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup margarine or butter

4 eggs

4 cups flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 tbsp vanilla

8 tbsp milk


Mix sugars and butter and beat till creamy.

Add in eggs, flour, baking soda, vanilla, and milk. Combine nicely.

Mash bananas and add to the combination. *Tip: At all times freeze over ripe bananas for later use!

Fill loaf pans 3/4 of the best way full and bake at 350 levels for one hour.

Yields two common sized loaf pans. One for you, and one for a buddy!
