My favorite banana bread

This is the recipe that my Grandma and Mom have always made. The photo copy I have is the from an old newspaper article my Grandma clipped many years ago. No matter how many banana bread recipes I try, nothing ever seems to compare to this one. Now, I realize that many people do not like to bake with bisquick, but I promise if you try this recipe you will not be disappointed. I have to keep bisquick on hand for this recipe alone. I LOVE it. It is so moist and flavorful. It is extremely simple, and is called a one pan bread because you can mix it directly in the loaf pan (although I never do).

One Pan Banana Bread


1/3 Cup vegetable oil

1 ½ Cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3-4)

½ tsp vanilla

3 eggs

2 1/3 Cups Bisquick

1 cup sugar


Preheat oven to 350. Generously grease the bottom of a loaf pan. Stir all ingredients in a bowl (or the loaf pan you are baking bread in) with a fork until moistened; beat vigorously 1 minute. Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean (55-60 minutes).

    I never would have thought of using bisquick in banana bread but I’ll have to give it a try. It looks great!
