Simply Delicious 5 Ingredient Banana Bread!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

As with all families, last week we set out to attend a memorial service. We were asked to bring a dish for the potluck that was going to be offered directly after the service. We had a 2 1/2 hour journey ahead of us to reach the community center where the service was being held. I wanted to contribute and yet I wanted to bring something that would be easy to transport and not require refrigeration.

Quick bread is a good choice for many reasons. It can be made with healthy ingredients, it does not, in fact, need refrigeration and for those with not much of an appetite, it is enjoyable with a cup of coffee or tea as you sit and reminisce. You could definitely add some chocolate chips or chopped nuts, but this simple, moist version was just the ticket to sit and sip and enjoy the company of others.

I hope you give this simple quick bread a try, it is delicious, moist and good on any day you serve it. We doubled the recipe in order to make 2 loaves for sharing.

  1. My husband loves banana bread. I made a molasses white whole wheat bread the other week and will make a soda bread for St. Patrick's Day.

    1. I have come to really enjoy whole grain baking, this bread turned out great!

  2. What a simple but delicious looking recipe. WE are fans of banana bread

    1. It is also a "good keeper" as my grandmother use to say!

  3. I think taking banana bread for a memorial service is a great idea. I never have an appetite at such things, but a slice of banana bread with a cup of tea would be a real pick me up. Thanks for the idea, Rocquie

    1. It is always a toss up, folks are either very hungry or don't have much appetite. This was very nice with a cup of tea.
