Banana Spice Bread

Banana Spice Bread

-By Eleanor Langseth

(reprinted in the “Langseth Homestyle Cooking” compiled by my cousin Alicia Baer)


  • 1c (2-3) bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Sift together:

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Add to sifted ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter (the recipe calls for shortening…the butter is a “Tracyism”)
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • Banana mixture from above

Then add:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Beat together.  Pour into greased loaf pans.  Bake @ 375 degrees for 60 minutes. I recommend covering the edges with tinfoil to prevent them from burning during baking.
