From Denise Morts, Expeditors, 2002
1 1/2 cup sugar (I use 1+ cups; my family uses 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup sour milk (this is 1/3 cup milk soured with lemon juice, explained
1/2 cup walnuts, if desired
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
bananas (I use 1 or 1.5; my family uses 2-3)
Wooden spoon or mixer
Here’s what you do:
Pour lemon juice to cover the bottom of the measuring cup – add the milk and let stand.
Mix flour, baking soda and salt – set aside.
Beat eggs with fork in the mixing bowl. Add sugar and vanilla. I use a wooden spoon and mix until smooth.
Add sour milk and combine. Add oil and attempt to combine. At this stage, the oil will not mix in.
Add dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
Add banana. (I slice the banana into the bread mixture; my family mashes the bananas first.)
Bake at 325 for 1 hour 20 minutes.
