The Ultimate Banana Bread Recipe

While I was baking my peanut butter cookies the other day, I decided to make a batch of my famous banana bread. I had noticed that I had two overripe bananas and what a better way to use them up.
This recipe is another one of More Gram's. My family has had this recipe for as long as I can remember and it is one of my favourites to make. Just like my Rhubarb Custard Pie Recipe, I was making this when I first started to cook. My family is quite small and close so whenever I would bake a pie, or a batch of bread, Grandma and More Gram always got some. It was one of their favourites too.
Whenever I take a pie or banana bread into work, it is gone the same day. I always give More Gram the credit.
Now there is one ingredient listed that when you look at it, I am sure you will say "WTF" to yourself, but it really makes the recipe. Trust me. You can also use this recipe for muffins too. Just adjust the time accordingly.

More Gram's Banana Bread

2 overripe bananas
1 egg
3/4 cup of sugar
1 cup Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
dash of vanilla

Mix all of the above throughly then add the following:

1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients well and pour into loaf pan and bake at 350* for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Or pour into muffin tins and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
The Miracle Whip make the bread moist and adds a subtle flavour.

*As a treat, I sometimes add 1/2 - 3/4 cup chocolate chips*

I meant "super". That's so funny because when I was a little girl I made my dad a father's day card that read "To a Supper Dad!" He looks at it and says, "That's all you kids ever think about- food!"

Good! At least i am not the only one who has heard of using Miracle Whip in a cake recipe!
The coke sounds interesting! I have made cola chicken before.

Was the cola chicken good? It sounded interesting when I heard about it before, but I just couldn't bring myself to try it yet.
