I have tried several BBread recipes and they all come out dry and not very tasty. I have had other peoples (and never got their recipe) and somehow its so dense and moist it doesn't even need butter. I 've tried cooking less time etc and still never quite good. Anyone have a really great bbread recipe out there?
I just made one from a recipe on the King Arthur Flour website (kingarthurflour.com). It's a dark bread, with brown sugar instead of white, and cinnamon and nutmeg. I brought it to work and it was a big hit.
I use the one on the back of the Bisquick box, then add chocolate chips!
Comes out nice and moist.
I just baked a double batch of this bread yesterday. This recipe was handed down from my Grandmother.

1 cup shortening (marg or butter works too)
2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
4 large bananas
6 tbsp milk - dissolve 1 tsp baking soda
4 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Cream together first 3 ingred. Add next 3, mix well. Sift remaining, then add to creamed mixture.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

I hope you enjoy this bread
