Best Banana Muffins/Bread IVE EVER had...
3 Large eggs. 3/4 Cup vegetable oil. (olive oil can be used, but it throws off the flavor a little bit, although is much healthier for you.) 1 Cup Brown Sugar, normal or dark, do not use light unless you dont mind lacking a little flavor... 3/4-1 teaspoon depending on taste, Pure vanilla extract, flavoring will do ...Ive used it,lol. 3 Cups Unbleached all purpose flour, normal flour will do, but unbleached is better for you and costs & tastes the same. 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder. 3/4 teaspoon salt Banana bread variation. Add 1 and a half cups mashed ripe banana to the wet ingredients before mixing, and if you like fold in 1 cup chopped nuts and or half a cup of chocolate chips. (I LOVE it with chocolate chips...I use bittersweet)
preheat oven to 350 degrees,
In a large bowl mix together the eggs,oil, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in the fruit or vegetable ingredients of your choice and mix well. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined, being careful not to over mix the batter. Fold in the additional ingredients called for in your variation. bake for 20-25 minutes (may take longer as bread, and if bread comes out a little to dark on the outside and a little to under done in the middle in your oven, reduce heat to 325 as some ovens run a little hot.)
