SO made the Selkie/Audeo,Goodweed reciep this morning. She got a loaf pan and two minis out of the mix.

In the interests of science I had one of the minis for breakfast. This is a great recipe. Tastes great and has a much better texture than SO's Jiffy Mix recipe.

I noticed something interesting. The Jiffy Mix recipe calls for 3/4 cup of sugar. The Audeo recipe calls for 1 3/4 cups of sugar. Alix's recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar. All the recipes call for 2 cups of flour (or mix). That seems like a big variation in sugar. The Jiffy Mix recipe always tasted appropriately sweet and does the Audeo recipe. I assume Alix's does as well. Things that make you go "Hmmmm".

I've been using the recipe from The Fresh Loaf forum and it's very similar to what Selkie and Goodweed posted above. It's very good.

Oooo...try mine next. I bet most of it is a texture thing. You won't get more than one loaf out of my recipe. Its a single loaf for sure.

This is a Martha Stewart recipe, and IMHO, the best banana bread recipe. I've made many, but since trying this recipe, it's the only one I make now. I think it's the sour cream, it really keeps it moist.

Banana Bread

Makes 1 large loaf or 4 mini loaf pans

1 stick butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temp
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 2 large, or 3 medium)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9X5X3-inch loaf pan or 4 mini loaf pans.

With electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla, beating well.

Sift dry ingredients and combine with butter mixture. Blend well. Add bananas and sour cream; mix well. Stir in nuts and pour into prepared pan.

Bake about 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean (careful not to overbake). Turn out onto a rack to cool

Enjoy!

Okay, here's mine. This is a weekend morning favorite when the bananas have gotten REALLY REALLY ripe. That is the key.

Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar plus extra for topping
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 very ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans) plus extra for topping

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition.
4. Stir in vanilla and banana, combine well.
5. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.

6. Blend the banana mixture into the flour mixture; stir just to combine.
7. Fold in the nuts.
8. Pour batter into prepared pan, spread out if needed to fill the pan and level.
9. Sprinkle additional brown sugar and nuts on top of the loaf.
10. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf
comes out clean.

Dave! Your recipe looks a lot like mine! My recipe doesn't specify white or brown sugar but I prefer the taste of brown. Yummy! Fan favorite here too.

It does. I didn't catch that. I LOVE the brown sugar, and a good amount used as a topping and baked in... yum! My favorite part.
