Best Banana Bread bo began

james with his legendary banana bread in zero gravity
at hi-pdx reunion jan 2011!!!
First of all, you must love bananas and bread to enjoy this tasty delight. Second you need access to an oven. If you don't personally have an oven, call a friend and tell them you will make this recipe for them, and then maybe they will let you cook at their place. Once you are in the kitchen you will need:
2 cups flour ( simple white flour works best, some granola enjoying earthy people enjoy wheat flour. There is no reason for this phenomena to exist)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 pinches salt ( kosher please)
3-4 very ripe medium sized nanners(banana lover slang for banana).
1/3 cup oil (any kind works, olive oil gives it a rich bourgeois flavor)
1/2 to 1 cup sugar (you don't really need much sugar, it's all personal preference)
1/4 cup soymilk ( i like plain, some perverse people that lack properly developed taste buds enjoy vanilla, once again, personal preference)
1 teaspoon vanilla

To begin, find yourself 2 bowls, one very large and one medium bowl. Take the smaller bowl and put in the flour/baking soda/salt. let it chill while you do more baking.

Take the larger bowl and whisk the sugar and oil together. Then mash in the bananas until they are sufficiently mashifified. I am usually pretty lazy, so they don't need to be too mashed to be made into delicious bread. After that, add in the soymilk and vanilla. I sometimes add a pinch of cinnamon, but be careful as a little cinnamon goes a long way.

After this, mix in the dry ingredients and stir until it makes an awesomely gooey banana bread mixture. Its should slowly goop off of a spoon, if its too dry i add soymilk till i find the texture of my liking. if too wet i add more flour.

If you like chocolate, at this point you should add a cup or two of chocoalte chips. really anything can be added, ive made it with coconuts, cashews, raisins, oreos, etc. it is all good.

once you are done, get a bread pan and your mix should fill it about 1/2 way. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes, depending on how you like it. i poke it with a chopstick to see if it is ready. once the chopstick comes out dry, you should take it out.

Final Reminder: Baked good are like marijuana, they are meant to be shared. So if you make a delicious banana bread, don't bogart that shit. Go out and share it with your friends, neighbors, employees, fuck buddies, casual acquaintances, just share that shit.



  1. this should be called banana-sass bread! it is amazingly delicious. =)

  2. Making it right now... I think the number one challenge will be not eating all the dough before baking time. YUMMMMERS.

  3. Once again coming back to this ultimate Nanner Bread at my bff's in Ohio! Missin this bread and missin yer face!!
