Old Fashion Banana Bread (Gluten Free)
(if you’re not gluten sensitive, the written recipe in the photograph below is non-gluten free)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a bread pan. In a large bowl, cream together
1/3 cup Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon Almond Extract is nice, too... up to you!
3 to 4 mashed ripe Bananas
1 Tablespoon Vinegar
1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
Combine well, then gently mix in
2 cups Gluten Free Flour Blend
1 and ½ teaspoons Xanthan Gum
I teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
If desired, stir in
3/4 cups chopped Walnuts
Pour into your bread pan and bake for about 50-60 minutes, til browned and set in the center. Let cool before cutting. This freezes well too… I cut into slices, put 2 or 3 in a zip-lock baggie, and place in the freezer.
I often bake this in 4 mini loaf pans instead of one large pan. To be honest with you, the center is not always completely baked in the large loaf pan. If you use smaller pans, adjust the baking time to 25 to 35 minutes.
