Mom's Banana Bread

This banana bread is super delicious.

Trust me.

There is a secret ingredient. It's orange juice. My mom used to bring me this banana bread when she'd come visit me at college.

This was also one of the first recipes that I ever made.

Start by mixing the first three ingredients. Don't mix all of the ingredients at once. I have made this mistake before.

Mix these ingredients in a large bowl
2/3 cup oil
1 2/3 cup sugar
3 eggs

Now, add these ingredients and mix
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp almond extract (I often substitute with vanilla extract when I don't have almond extract)
1/4 cup orange juice
4-5 mashed bananas

Mashing the bananas is a great stress reliever. I had one frozen banana in the freezer, so I was able to use that banana, and I bought four fresh bananas. Frozen bananas are easier to mash.

Once you've added the mashed bananas to the mixture and mixed, carefully pour into a bundt pan. My bundt plan is a classic bundt pan.

Toss it in the oven at 350 for 50 minutes.

I wish you could experience the smell! It smells like my childhood.

Complete the toothpick test. Let cool for 15 minutes, and enjoy! The best pieces are the warm pieces.
