Banana Bread Minis Ingredients
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- 1 3/4 Cups AP Flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mashed organic banana (I used 3 large organic bananas)
After you preheat your oven, lightly spray your mini loaf pan with cooking spray. I used baking spray with flour added and it worked perfectly. My mother would have said to dip a bit of wax paper into the shortening container and rub it around. If you don’t mind a little elbow grease, feel free to grease the pan that way.
Add all of the dry ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl and set it aside.
Tip: Peel the bananas from the bottom end. Not only is it much easier to break the skin, but there’s far less of those pesky banana strings to deal with.
Using the paddle attachment, beat the bananas on medium for about a minute until they become banana mush. It’s okay if you have some chunky bits left. They will bake right in. next, add in the rest of the wet ingredients to the bananas.
That bowl of dry ingredients that you’ve been worried about knocking over? Let’s put it to use. Add the dry ingredients 1/3 at a time to the wet mixture. I mixed on low speed as I really didn’t feel like a face full of flour.
