Simple Banana Bread


1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 cup** sugar
2 ripe bananas (the riper the better)

Mix flour and soda, add other ingredients to the
soda/flour mix. Mix thoroughly. Place in greased
loaf pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Of course
I always add pecans and they make it even
better.


**I found that 1 cup sugar made it far too sweet
for my taste so I cut it down to between 1/2 and
3/4 cup.



(this is the recipe as my mom gave it to me. I
use Splenda in place of the sugar and I do
not add any type of nuts as DS # 1 is deathly
allergic to them!!

Also, I place the bananas in a bowl and run the
mixer through them until they are almost pureed
before adding them)

Thank you so much for the banana bread recipe. It is very similar to the one I used. Except butter in place of the oil. I will try this one next. Maybe all I need is practice. Thank you again.
