2 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
1 1/2teaspoonsbaking powder
3mediumoverripe bananas,mashed with a fork (about 1 cup)
1/2cupcanola oil (or your preferred cooking oil)
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed banana and the eggs. Add the buttermilk, oil, sugar, and vanilla and mix well.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes. When a toothpick is inserted into the center of the bread, it should come out with moist crumbs but with no raw batter on it.
Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and place on a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing. Store covered in the refrigerator*.
*It may not be common to store banana bread in the refrigerator. But, this bread gets EVEN BETTER after it's been covered in the refrigerator for a few hours. If you're making this for breakfast, I recommend making it the night before.
