Boomer Sooner-Banana Bread

After my post about breakfast options I felt it necessary to tell you about my favorite banana bread recipe.  My wonderful college (BOOMER SOONER) roommate Kristen passed this along from her sweet grandmother.  My mouth is watering as a type this post...that is how fabulous it is! 

Banana Bread 

•    1 1/3-cups canola oil
•    3-cups sugar, plus additional for sprinkling
•    4 eggs, beaten
•    6 bananas, smashed
•    1-cup sour cream
•    2 tsp vanilla
•    4 cups flour
•    1 ½ tsp soda
•    1 ½ tsp salt
•    2 cups pecans (optional)

1.    Preheat the oven to 325.  Grease 2 large loaf pans and sprinkle some sugar at the bottom of the loaf pans. (I do not own two large loaf pans so I substituted two smaller ones instead.  You could also make muffins but make sure you have a lot people who will eat some of them!)
2.    Combine oil, sugar, eggs, bananas and sour cream.  Mix.  Add vanilla and mix.
 

3.    In another bowl mix flour, soda and salt.  Slowly add flour mixture into the 1st bowl.  When all combined fold in the pecans (This is optional, I did not add the nuts because I made this for my boyfriend who does not like pecans).   
4.    Pour into loaf pans.  VERY IMPORTANT: sprinkle sugar on the top of the batter, this will create a crunchy top that is completely fabulous.  It takes all my strength not to pick all of this off ☺

5.    Bake 45 – 60 min depending on what kind of pan you are using.  Towards the end of baking monitor how dark the top is getting.  Sometimes I have to cover the top with tin foil to finish the baking process.  Allow bread to cool for 20 minutes before trying to take out of the pan. I do recommend cutting yourself a slice while it is still warm.  Just add a little butter and a glass of milk! Mmmmm Yummy!


Grace, peace, and be sure to enjoy some sweets!

  1. I know what you mean! Recipe writing is difficult. Right now I'm working on a scrapbook for my recipes and it took me awhile to figure out how I came up with the "directions" (like where to capitalize or punctuate, stuff like that mostly). I was also really uncomfortable starting my blog, but it for sure gets easier as it goes! It also is "fun" with my sister reading and pointing out every mistake of mine. :) I'll need to try the banana bread next time I'm cooking!!
