I’ve discovered the best banana bread recipe ever (no, really, I loved it, my coworkers loved it, and a day after finishing the first two loaves my boyfriend went out to get me the ingredients to repeat the recipe). It’s fairly simple to make and most of the ingredients were ones we had on hand or were cheap to purchase.
I found the recipe in my Taste of Home Most Requested Recipes issue but you can find it online here. I had only one major change which was:
- The recipe calls for 2 packages of instant vanilla pudding mix. When I was at the store they had banana cream pudding mix, which I thought was a no brainer. So I use 1 package vanilla and one package banana cream for added banana goodness. I also accidentally got more pudding mix than I needed, so I used the leftover to actually make pudding to go with my banana bread. It was okay, but I decided that next time I was going to make pudding from scratch. I also had trouble not eating the banana bread batter, which is almost as delicious (if not more so) than the final product.
