Meg's Sweet Banana Bread

I have to admit it, this is the moistest banana bread I have ever had. You have got to make this recipe and eat it up.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (3 to 4 medium)
1/3 cup water
1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Heat oven to 325F degrees. Spray smooth, dark coated bundt pan with high heat nonstick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, mash bananas and water together until semi-smooth, no big chunks.

In a mixer or large bowl, mix sugars and butter with an electric mixer. Add eggs until blended. Add mashed bananas mix; beat 30 seconds. Stir in dry ingredients until just moistened. Add extracts and mix just a second more.

Pour into pan. Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Bake 50 minutes.

Flip pan onto a cake plate and allow to cool completely before slicing.


  1. Oh my...sounds like you had a busy weekend! You are right, I do love the painting you found for a dollar. It is beautiful!

    My Mom had/has a glass frog like that...I had forgotten all about it. We used to use it when we were kids.

    So glad the fire didn't get out of control! Those apartment fires can be scary.

  2. Oh and love the rocker your hubs picked up for you!
