Banna Bread


As the holidays approach, and you begin to think about baking goodies to mail, to friends and families, I thought I would share this idea to make shipping easy.

Yes, everyone loves cookies and fudge, but if you would like to try something different, this is a great way to ensure that your cakes or breads will arrive fresh and unharmed!  This is also a great way to ship a little birthday cake.

Use a disposable pan to bake the cake or bread, I buy mine at the Dollar Store; once it is cooled, drop it in the tin, cover it lightly with wax paper, place the lid on the tin, and ship it with confidence.  I assure you the recipient will be pleasantly surprised.

Below is Betty Crocker’s Cookbook recipe for Banana Bread:


1 cup of Sugar
⅓ cup of Butter
2 Eggs
3-4 mashed, ripe, Bananas
⅓ cup of water
1 teaspoon of Vanilla
1⅔ cups of Flour
1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
¼ teaspoon of Baking Powder
½ teaspoon of Salt
1 cup of chopped nuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees, lightly grease the bottom of baking pans. Cream sugar and butter, then add eggs, one at a time, when well mixed, add bananas, buttermilk and vanilla.

Mix all dry ingredients together, in a separate bowl, except for the nuts, and gradually add to wet mixture. When incorporated, add the nuts, and pour into pans, filling them about half way.

Bake for 55- 60 minutes until a tooth pick, inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
