My kids say this was my best banana bread ever, so I decided to share a picture and the recipe.
The recipe is from the New Fannie Farmer Boston coooking-School Cook Book (1951 edition), though here it’s called Banana Cake
1/2 cup butter (I use sunflower seed oil)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 banana mashed
2 cups of pastry or cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of milk.
Cream butter; add sugar gradually. Add eggs and beat thoroughly. Add mashed banana. Sift dry ingredients together and add alternately with milk.
Bake at 350°, 20 to 30 minutes,
