I’ve got a secret to share with you…I don’t eat bananas! I love banana bread, banana nut scones, banana bars, and I put bananas in my smoothies, but I have no memory of ever eating a plain banana. My family loves bananas though, so when I buy them, I always buy extra so that I can use them in my smoothies and my baked treats. Today I am sharing an Easy Banana Bread recipe with a secret ingredient: MIRACLE WHIP!
Over the past few months, I’ve learned that MIRACLE WHIP Dressing isn’t just a must-have for giving dips and salads a kick; as the weather cools down, you can take your holiday and seasonal menus â€“ whether for a fall party with friends or Thanksgiving dinner with the family – to the next level with the one-of-a-kind bold, tangy flavor of MIRACLE WHIP in apps, entrees and even desserts. It was a delicious addition to the banana bread. Everyone in my family loved it!
To make the banana bread, start by whisking together mashed bananas, an egg and the MIRACLE WHIP.
Mix the flour, sugar, walnuts, baking soda and salt together in a small bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir until just moistened. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick, inserted into the center, comes out clean.
Oh my…did we ever enjoy this banana bread! I made it last Saturday which was a beautiful fall day with a chill in the air. My kids could smell it baking in the oven and couldn’t wait to try it. I took the banana bread out of the oven, quickly took my pictures and we were able to savor the bread while it was still warm!
