Best Banana Bread (Laura’s Banana Bread)

I think my mom got this recipe from a person named Laura.  It is pretty old…but it is the best bread!

1/2 cup oleo (butter…not margarine)

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 cups flour sifted with 1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup chopped pecans (I use chocolate chips instead)

3 large bananas mashed

Blend oleo and sugar well.  Beat in the eggs one at a time.  Add the flour mixture. Stir in bananas and nuts.

Pour into greaded and floured (or sugared) loaf pan.  Bake at 350 for 45minutes-1 hour.  (Depending on the oven it might only be 35 minutes.  The edges will get brown before the center is done.  The center will rise and crack…to see if it is done, stick a toothpick into a colored crack.  If it is clean, it is done.)

  1. I will have to argue. Until we put this bread and Jen’s banana bread side by side we will never know. Jen’s is amazing…

  2. Thanks for letting us have a taste test! In 24 hours there is almost none left. I can’t wait to bake some myself.
