In the early 2000’s my Mom entered quite a few items into the Oro World’s Fair baking/craft competition.  She took home a lot of First Place ribbons that year, one of which was for her amazing banana bread.  I follow this recipe anytime I make banana bread, and Mom has let me know I can share the recipe with all of you!

When it comes to bananas, it is often a challenge for me to get through a whole bunch without them over ripening.  The problem is that I don’t actually eat bananas in banana form.  I am a weirdo when it comes to fruit and I don’t like the texture of many of them. I just find most of them icky!  If I transform the fruit, however, I have no problem eating it.  Weird, right?  I normally transform fruit into smoothies (I can eat almost any fruit in smoothie form).  If I have a banana fail and the bunch doesn’t get eaten before they go off, I put them in the freezer until I have enough of them to make my Mom's amazing banana bread.

Oro Fair First Place Banana Bread

1 cup mashed banana (wet)
1 cup brown sugar (wet)
4 tbsp melted butter or margarine (wet)
2 eggs (wet)
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
walnuts (1/2 cup or to taste)

Mix all wet ingredients together.  Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl, and add to wet ingredients. Stir until mixed.  Add walnuts and stir.

Grease loaf pan generously.  Fill loaf pan 2/3 full (should be all the batter).

Bake at 350 for 55-65 minutes.

 Mmmmmm.... Fresh baked banana bread...
