Rachel's Banana Bread

This is by far the best banana bread I've ever had! We often refer to it as "Rachel's Banana Bread" since we got the recipe from our friend Rachel D. I made some today so I thought I'd share it with you! 

1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c butter, softened
1 1/2 c mashed bananas (ok, you may think this is weird, but when bananas are starting to go bad at our house we stick them in the freezer...when we want to make bread we pull them out and either let them thaw or defrost them in the microwave. they're perfect for banana bread and we usually always have some on hand!)

2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt

1/2 c sour cream
chocolate chips are really yummy addition too!

Divide between 2 greased pans. Bake at 325 (glass dish) or 350 (metal dish) for 45-60 minutes. Enjoy!!


  1. Haha!! Thanks so much for figuring that out for me! It took me forever to realize that it opened! :P
    But my Mama asked an older woman that she works with and she said pretty much the same thing. She said they used to use it for cabbage when she was growing up. Well, I really feel blessed now!
    Thanks again!

  2. We made this yesterday and it was really yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)

  3. You're welcome! I'm glad you liked it! :)
