I have been baking banana loaf for so long and I've never heard of this one! This adds graham cracker crumbs into the ingredients and, Wow! So, so good. It adds another depth of flavor, has a more sturdy texture (if that makes sense), and a nice cruncy top. In fact, it's so delish, I didn't even feel the need to add chocolate (which my tasters had a bit of a laugh about). So, if banana bread is a constant in your recipe lineup, I highly suggest giving this one a try. Whether you add some nuts, chocolate chips or leave it plain, I think you'll be really happy with this recipe:)
Banana Graham Cracker Loaf
In a bowl, mix together 1 2/3 c. graham cracker crumbs 1 1/2 c. flour (spooned into measuring cups) 3/4 c. sugar 1 tbsp. b. powder 1/2 tsp. salt
In a separate bowl, beat together 2 eggs 1/2 c. milk 1/3 c. veg. oil 1 c. mashed bananas (about 2 large or 3 small)
Add the wet to the dry, mixing until just combined.
Pour into a parchment lined loaf pan (no parchment, just grease your pan) *I like my Emile Henry Loaf pan - available in the store and online - it bakes up so nicely, is easy to clean and it's made in France.
Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes (but really depends on the size of your loaf pan) until a toothpick comes out clean or the top bounces back when lightly touched.
