Mrs. Flint's Banana Bread - Revisited

In honor of Mother's Day, I am featuring recipes from some of the mother's who have touched my life. Today's recipe is from my good friend Larry's mother. If you like banana bread, give this recipe a try! She always said it was the glaze and really ripe bananas that made this bread so delicious.



Mrs. Flint's Banana Bread

Cream together 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter. Add two eggs, 3 mashed RIPE bananas, pinch of sale, 1 teaspoon of soda, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1 3/4 cup flour.

Bake in greased and floured loaf pans at 350 for 45 - 60 minutes. Makes two medium size loaves.

Glaze while still warm with a glaze of powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and milk.

I am linking this to Tuesday's at the Table, Tempt My Tummy Tuesday, Tasty Tuesday's and Tuesday Night Supper Club.

  2. I grew up enjoying banana bread. I think my mom made it, because of its simplicity. This is a great banana bread recipe. I agree, the glaze and overripe bananas is what makes thsi recipe special.
