Banana Bread (Mrs. Fields)


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups ripe banana mashed (7-8 medium, very ripe)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease two 9-b-5-inch loaf pans with butter.
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, soda and salt with a wire whisk; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer.  Add eggs, bananas and vanilla, and beat at medium speed until thick.  Scrape down sides of bowl.
  4. Add the flour mixture, then blend at low speed just until combined.  Do not overmix.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pans.  Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes.  A topic inserted in center should come out clean, and the bread should pull away from the sides.
  6. Cool in pan, for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and let cool on wire rack.
