World's Best Banana Bread

Joyce Bartol

Serves/Makes:3 loaves

  • 9 overripe bananas
  • 3 cups (700 ml) sugar
  • 3 sticks margarine, softened
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 cups (1425 ml) flour
  • 3 tsp (15 ml) baking soda
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) baking powder
  • 3 cups (700 ml) pecans or walnuts, chopped
  • Cream margarine and sugar well.
  • Add eggs.
  • Add bananas and mix well.
  • Come dry ingredients together.
  • Add dry ingredients to banana mixture and mix well.
  • Add nuts by hand.
  • Pour into 3 greased loaf pans.
  • Bake at 350 degrees (175 C.) for 30 minutes.
  • Reduce to 300 degrees (150 C.) and bake an additional 30 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Freezes well.
In my many years in the kitchen, this is by far the best banana bread recipe I have tried, and I have tried many. I always freeze 2 loaves, because they freeze so well. Then in a minutes notice I have something to rely on out of the freezer. Margarine must be one that contains at least 65% vegetable oil.
