  1. I got this one from Cooking Light a few years ago. It is the best banana bread I've ever had!

    Mom's Banana Bread


    1 cup sugar

    1/4 cup light butter, softened

    1 2/3 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)

    1/4 cup skim milk

    1/4 cup low-fat sour cream

    2 large egg whites

    2 cups all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Cooking spray


    Preheat oven to 350°.

    Combine sugar and butter in a bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Add banana, milk, sour cream, and egg whites; beat well, and set aside.

    Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; stir well. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture, beating until blended.

    Spoon batter into 4 (5 x 2 1/2-inch) miniature loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pans 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pans. Let cool completely on wire racks.

    Note: To make one 9-inch loaf, spoon batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray; bake at 350º for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Yield: 1 loaf, 20 servings (serving size: 1 slice).


    4 loaves, 4 servings per loaf (serving size: 1 slice)
