Wanted: TNT Banana Bread Recipe

SO has been making banana bread using Jiffy Mix (similar to Bisquick). Lately we have not been happy with the end result.

Pleas share your TnT recipe for banana bread with us.

Thanks, guys.

I like it, and it's a proven recipe.

Banana Bread


Butter a non-stick bread pan, then flour well.

Combine the following dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside:
2 cups AP flour
1¾ cup sugar
1½ cup toasted coarsely chopped walnuts
1½ teaspoon baking soda
1½ teaspoon salt

In another medium bowl coarsely smash 3 ripe bananas (use a large spoon or spatula and don't puree the banana because they need to be chunky)

To the bananas, add and combine: (but try not to reduce the banana chunks)

2 large eggs, beaten
6 Tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1¼ cup buttermilk or plain yogurt

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently FOLD until the flour is thoroughly moistened and no longer visible. Pour into the prepared bread pan and spread the mixture evenly across the top.

Bake in a preheated 350-degree (F) oven for 45-50 minutes.

Andy; A few years back, there was this lady who called herself Audio. She made candies, pastries, and all things sweet. She gave DC a banana bread recipe that was superb. I cut and pasted it to my computer. I share it again with you and all of DC. It's a really great recipe, in Audeo's original words. Enjoy.

Audio’s Banana Nut Bread



Best Banana Bread I've Ever Had!!!
I thought my recipe for banana-nut bread was great right up until this morning. The difference in texture and taste is incredible, and I will never make banana bread by any other recipe again!


The BEST Banana Bread


Butter a non-stick bread pan, then flour well. (The flour is really important for the bread to climb against while baking. I had not done that before, and it makes a huge difference!)


Combine and mix well the following dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside:
2 cups AP flour
1¾ cup sugar
1½ cup toasted coarsely chopped walnuts
1½ teaspoon baking soda
1½ teaspoon salt


In another medium bowl, coarsely smash 3 ripe bananas (use a large spoon or spatula and don't puree the banana as it needs to be chunky)


To the bananas, add and combine: (but try not to reduce the banana chunks)


2 large eggs, beaten
6 Tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1¼ cup buttermilk or plain yogurt


Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently FOLD until the flour is thoroughly moistened and no longer visible. Pour into the prepared bread pan and spread the mixture evenly across the top.


Bake in a preheated 350-degree (F) oven for 45-50 minutes.


Before, I had mixed my batter in my KitchenAid, the wet stuff first, then added the dry and mixed some more. Making banana bread with this method yields a hearty, beautiful loaf that is absolutely delicious!

Sorry for the posting of the same recipe. I was in the middle of posting it when my youngest daughter called on skype. Sorry, but daughter, son-in-law and grandaughter are first on the priority list. After we were done talking, I returned to DC and posted Audio's recipe again. When it showed up, I saw Selkie's post.

Ah well, now you know it's tried and true.
