banana bread recipe

Food Detour!
Here is a scan of my all-time favorite recipe for banana bread (or muffins)
It's from my paternal grandmother's 1943 edition of "The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book" otherwise known as "Fannie Farmer"
I inherited this cookbook when I went off to college in 1974 and have been using it ever since.
This particular edition has cool ads in the back, including one to "buy more and still more War Bonds and Stamps until Victory is ours."
(I'll scan and post later)

Meanwhile... back to the recipe...
You can see all my handwritten additions -- currently I use ground cinnamon, cloves, coriander + cardamom for the spices (no exact measure, but maybe 1/2 tsp for cinnamon and 1/8 tsp for others) and it's about 1tsp of vanilla

more later... Lada is on her way over to help me eat some!

  1. We have very same edition of "Boston Cooking School Cookbook," which Charlie's mother received as a 19-year-old newlywed (living in Boston with undergraduate husband); I imagine the tattered volume in kitchen I grew up in was of similar vintage. ADT
