  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed bananas 3-4 bananas
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped nuts (optional - I like walnuts best!)


  • Cream margarine (or butter) and sugar.
  • Add eggs and beat. Add bananas, milk, and lemon juice.
  • Sift dry ingredients and add. Stir in nuts (if using them).

If Baking Loaf:

  • Bake in well-greased bread loaf pan for 1 hour at 350 degrees F. Makes 1 loaf.

If Making Muffins:

  • Bake in greased muffin tins (or use baking cups) at 350 degrees for about 20-22 minutes. (I can’t remember exactly how many these made last time I made them! I am thinking that it made 12-15 . . . but don’t hold me to that number!)
  • Glaze with mixture of milk and powdered sugar (I don’t ever measure it, I just keep adding one ingredient or the other until I get the consistency I want) and 1/2 tsp almond flavoring. Glaze muffins/bread while still hot.
