I am looking for the Banana Nut Tea Bread recipe from the old Chiquita Banana Recipe Booklet. Please help it was my Grandma's favorite recipe.
By Paula from Erie, PA
I went to the Chiquita site for this one:
Easy Classic Chiquita Banana Bread Recipe
1 cup All-purpose flour
1 cup Unprocessed wheat bran
1 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
4 whole Chiquita Bananas (best with brown spots on peel)
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Unsalted butter, soft
2 whole Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1/2 cup Walnuts, chopped
1 Tbsp. Honey
Cook Time (Minutes)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease loaf pan. Whip 2 Chiquita Bananas and sugars until mix is creamy (about 3 minutes). Add butter, eggs and vanilla and whip until smooth. Min in all dry ingredients until blended then add walnuts and blend for additional minute. Slice Chiquita Bananas and toss with honey until Chiquita Bananas are well coated. Pour mix in loaf pan and place honey coated bananas on top. Bake in oven for 60 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes then place plate on top of pan and flip pan upside down so loaf falls onto plate. Slice and garnish the loaf with your choice of fresh fruit, powder sugar, yogurt etc.
Hope this is the one you are looking for :)
this is probably the recipe you recall:
still a favorite in my home.
Chiquita Banana Bread
1/3 c. shortening
2/3 c. sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 3/4 c. sifted all purpose flour
2 3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. mashed ripe bananas (2-3 bananas)
Beat shortening until creamy and glossy, or 2 minutes at medium speed on electric mixer.
Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy after each addition.
Add eggs and beat until thick and pale lemon in color.
Sift dry ingredients; add alternately with bananas.
No that is not the right one, too many ingredients. It was a very simple recipe.
