Banana Bread-- Betty Crocker Cookbook--1970's Recipe? - Page 2

post #16 of 29

I have that cookbook and use it ONLY for the banana nut bread recipe.  It's so easy and sooooo good. 

2 1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar

3 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

3 tablespoon vege oil

1/3 cup milk

1 egg

1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1 tablespoon orange peel grated (optional)

2 to 3 bananas - the riper the better

 

Mix all ingredients.  Pour into greased bottom only loaf pan.  Bake 350 degrees 60 - 70 minutes.

 

Enjoy!

Ooh, that's so wild...I remember that cookbook from my childhood...my mom still has it!

 

Seems like you're covered as far the recipe, but if you want to try another really good banana bread recipe, the one on the back of a bag of Gold Medal flour is one of the best I've tried.  Here's a link to it online:

SSOOOOO Since I can never leave well enough alone. I changed the recipe. I had an entire box of singles from restaurant depot that i never got to use. I figured.. hmmmm great idea. This is what I did... BTW the recipe is doubled and changed. If I screw it up I like to do it big ;)

 

2 1/2 cups cake flour

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cup sugar
7 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons salad oil
1 1/2 cups milk
2 egg
2 cup almond meal
6 medium bananas
1 tablespoon of vanilla/butter emulsion

 

bananas, oil, and vanilla, into the mixer and mix till the bananas are incorporated. Add sugar to the banana mix and pulse till incorporated.  whisk the remaining dry ingredients into a bowl. Then add the two eggs one at a time into the mixer till just incorporated. add sifted dry into the mixer alternating with the milk and always start and end with the dry. fold the last addition in with a spatula. Let sit in the mixer for 10 minutes and rest. heat oven in this time to 350. I am making muffins with this. I will report back how many. :)

 

To add... the batter tastes like heaven

The banana nut bread recipe I need is posted in a Betty Crocker cookbook I received when I got married in 1972. It does not include salad oil or buttermilk instead it has shortening as an ingredient. It is quite simple but absolutely delicious! Can anyone help?

You can order a copy of the 1972 version thru Amazon-  Order quickly because most of them are really high priced.  http://www.amazon.com/Betty-Crockers-Cookbook-Crocker/dp/B000OL9WOK/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1395166057&sr=1-2&keywords=betty+crocker+cook+book+1972

Since my post, I realized my recipe was in the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook not the Betty Crocker! Thanks anyway!

post #27 of 29

Did you find a copy of the recipe after realizing you were looking in the wrong cookbook? Any chance of pointing us towards it? :D

Better yet, I will send you the recipe. I baked it and it was as delicious as I remember it!
