Tips

You can make this bread without a mixer. Beat the oil and eggs with a lot of energy with a whisk or spoon. The bread will rise more if you beat more air into it

If using a 9 inch by 5 inch loaf pan, lay a piece of tinfoil over the top of the pan during baking to prevent overbrowning.

Put whole bananas in the freezer if they are dark and spotted. Thaw, peel, and mash them when you are ready to make banana bread.

Store the bread in the refrigerator or freezer.
