Since moving into our new wee house all I have wanted to do is stay home and bake and paint. Our house is so fun! Theres a lawn and so much space in the kitchen and its easy to clean up! Our first week here we felt like we were on vacation and we’d have to go back to the trailer at any minute. I love this little place.
Anyway, the two things I have been wanting to bake the most is blueberry pie (donezo) and my favourite banana bread. Its not exactly the healthiest version of the after school snack but it is so quick, super moist and gets even better the longer it sits. It is an absolute assassin with some salty butter on top.
My Favourite Banana Bread
Yield: 1 8×8 pan or 1 large loaf
Time: 45 minutes start to finish
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
dash of vanilla
8 ripe bananas
2 tbsps sour cream
Preheat the oven to 350F and line your pan with parchment paper.
Mash bananas and sour cream together.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Beat sugar and eggs together for 10 minutes on medium speed. Drizzle in oil. Mix in walnuts, banana and creme fraiche. Fold in dry ingredients. Pour into pan.
Bake about 30 minutes. Longer if you are baking in a loaf pan.
Wait til it cools completely and eat with salty butter!
