The Guaranteed to Be Moist Banana Bread Recipe

Don't you just hate eating dry banana bread? I know I do. And the worst part is that it seems like almost every banana bread I try is incredible dry (you know, the kind of dry that literally shuts the top and bottom of your mouth together).

That's why I had to come up with my own moist banana bread recipe. After a little experimenting in the kitchen, here's the recipe I came up with to guarantee a moist banana bread experience.

Here are the ingredients for the Guaranteed To Be Moist Banana Bread:

2 1/2 cups of Flour
4 Bananas (very ripe)
1 3/4 cups of Sugar
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1 cup of Vegetable Shortening
1/2 teaspoon of Salt
3 Eggs
1/4 cup of Buttermilk
1 1/3 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup of Walnuts (chopped)

This recipe provides enough batter for two standard 9 inch by 5 inch loaf size cooking pans. If you would like to make just one loaf of moist banana bread, just reduce the ingredient amounts by half.

Recipe Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, vegetable shortening, and salt. Stir until creamy, and then transfer into mixer.

3. Add the eggs and mix.

4. Add the buttermilk, flour, and baking soda and mix until batter has become uniform in consistency.

5. Mash up the ripe bananas and place in mixer along with walnuts. Mix up the batter one last time.

6. Grease up both loaf pans. Dust some flour to keep it from sticking.

7. Pour batter evenly between both loaf pans, and bake on oven for 45 minutes.

8. When you place a toothpick or knife blade into the banana bread and it comes out clean, then you know that the bread is fully cooked.

9. Let stand for thirty minutes before serving.

By following this recipe, I can pretty much guarantee that you will make deliciously moist banana bread every time. No more having to chug down a glass of milk to regain the ability to talk. I personally prefer my banana bread served warm with a slight spread of sweet butter. The combination of the melting butter and the moistness of the bread is incredibly satisfying to my taste buds.

Tips For Making Homemade Bread

There is nothing like homemade bread. Whether banana, pumpkin, white or whole wheat, the smell of a fresh, hot loaf can't be beat.

There are many reasons why you would want to make your own bread. If you have good pumpkin bread recipes or banana bread recipes, you can make a nice dessert or have a quick snack for the kids on hand at all times.
Baking your own white or wheat bread can help you save money on your grocery bill. Eating whole wheat bread will keep you healthier and may even help you lose weight.

You may want to consider supplying your family with homemade wheat bread all the time. The health benefits are many, especially if you are going to use fresh ground wheat. Eating a slice of bread made with fresh ground wheat is like taking a shot of vitamins.

What Is Wheat And Why Would You Want To Use It?

Wheat is the world’s most important grain crop and ranks first among the grains for its nutritional value. When used in its entirety, wheat is an excellent source of fiber and many critical B-vitamins.WheatB-vitamins. Wheat germ is one of the richest sources of vitamin E if used when freshly milled, before oxidation takes place.

The richest source of Vitamin E is found in the germ of the wheat kernel. Milled wheat loses its Vitamin E very quickly due to oxidization. This is the reason why the bread we buy really has nothing of value for us. It has been stripped of the vitamins provided in the wheat. Within about 72 hours of milling, 90% of over 30 nutrients are gone.

Families usually enjoy better health once they start baking bread with fresh ground wheat including significant improvements in sinus conditions, runny noses and colds. There have also been reports of reduced cholesterol counts, warts disappearing, acne clearing and a host of other wonderful benefits. Of course there are the obvious benefits of adding more fiber to your diet, but remember to drink a lot of water when you increase fiber.
