Yesterday for the kidlet’s after naptime snack I made Banana Bread. But not just any banana bread, a super yummy and moist bread that was really easy to make…in my CROCKPOT!!! Yup, that’s right, I said my crockpot!
I bought a crockpot cookbook late last spring and had vague memories that there was a bread section in it. So, I pulled it out yesterday and low and behold there was! I was a little hesistant at first, I mean my crockpot has been making dinners for our family for a couple years now but never a bread or sweet type of food. I thought it might come out tasting like chicken and was ready to throw it in the trash upon first taste but boy was I wrong. It was soooo good! The kids gobbled it up when they woke up and my hubby was only left with 2 small pieces when he came home from work last night. Pretty good considering it made a nice sized loaf. As Noah told me yesterday, ‘I like this nana bread, it’s healthy for me and nummy for me!’
What did I tell you, it’s for real!
Here is the recipe, really you must try it. You won’t believe your crockpot can do such amazing things to breads 🙂
Crockpot Banana Bread
Recipe type: Slow Cooker
- 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ⅓ cup butter or margarine
- ⅔ cup sugar
- 2 eggs, well beaten
- 2 tbsp dark corn syrup
- 3 ripe bananas, well mashed
- Grease and flour a 4½ quart crockpot.
- Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a small bowl, set aside.
- Cream butter with an electric mixer until fluffy.
- Slowly add sugar, eggs, corn syrup, and mashed bananas.
- Beat until smooth.
- Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture.
- Pour into crockpot, cover and cook on high for 1¼ to ½ hours or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Let cool, then invert bread onto serving platter.
- *My bread actually took about 2 hours to cook/bake, just so you know 🙂 *
- **You can also add ½ cup chopped walnuts if you like.
First, mix up all your dry ingredients…
Pour your batter into a greased crockpot and cook for 1 1/4 to 1/2 hours (or 2 hours if you’re like me!)
When it’s done the bread will pull away from the sides of your crockpot and a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean.
‘Nummy!’ as said by Noah 🙂
