The only reason I buy bananas: to make banana bread.  I have tried at least 50 different recipes but never really fell in love with one, until I tried this one that I found on The Food Network website recently.  After trying this recipe I just had to share it.  The result: a moist and flavourful loaf that is perfect for breakfast or snack time.  I also really like this recipe because it allows you to add chocolate and nuts or neither and the consistency of the bread is unchanged.  I’ve already made about 6 loaves with this recipe and it has been very consistent.  I have added chopped chocolate, hazelnuts, walnuts – every combination has been delicious.

Yield: 1 loaf

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

Set oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Beat sugar and eggs with a whisk until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Drizzle in oil. Add mashed bananas, creme fraiche, and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients and nuts. Pour into a lined loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.  For large muffins – bake for about 20 minutes.
