Banana Bread

I  Love banana bread.  Who doesn't?  My son Spencer loves it too.  Nothing better than having warm banana bread for him when he gets home from school.  It's a pretty simple recipe with amazing results.  The first thing you have to do is butter and sugar your bread pan.  If you don't know what I mean than you need to get with the program.  Check it out here.

 So this recipe is for one loaf of banana bread.  I always double and if you do, than just double the recipe.  No other changes necessary.  

1-3/4 cup gluten free flour
1-1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons xanthum gum
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons Milk
3 soft bananas

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the top dry ingredients in a bowl and put to the side.  Mix shortening and sugar in a mixer until smooth.  Add eggs, one at a time and then the milk.  Then alternate adding a little of the flour mixture and bananas until you have used it all.  I never mash my bananas up.  I just throw them in there nice and soft and the mixer does it for me.  If you are using a hand held mixer or your bananas aren't as soft you should mash them first.  Then put your mixture into it's pan of goodness.  It will look like this.  

Your finished product should look like this and taste even better.  Like I said, the recipe I posted is for one loaf of banana bread.  I always double it so there will be some left over for when my Mr. Darcy gets home.  

* I think you could use any other high quality gluten free flour and it will turn out.  Let me know if you try it with another flour.  I'm curious if it works!

  2. It doesnt list how much sugar..or how long to bake it....I was already making the recipe so I used 1/3 cup. Also I used a 2 to 1 ratio of Domata flour with buckwheat...half the amt of xanthem gum..threw in 1/3 cup peanut butter with the shortening (coconut oil) and a half cup gf mini choolate chips..baked for 50 minutes...It turned out awesome! Sweet and nutty with a good texture and just a little sweetness from the chocolate chips. Thanks for the recipe!!
