  • Summary

    This super moist, springy, tender carrot banana bread is bread that reminds me of cake and I'm not complaining. It’s an easy, no mixer recipe that goes from bowl to oven in minutes. I use oil rather than butter and there's no butter to cream and no mixer to dirty. Oil keeps bread softer and springier than butter. Both carrots and bananas have lots of moisture and if your bread takes longer (or shorter) than the estimates I gave for baking, don't worry. Bake until it's done.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large egg
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup cup sour cream (lite is okay; or Greek yogurt may be substituted)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus additional if necessary (see step 4 in directions)
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 1 cup coarsely grated carrots, laid loosely in cup and not packed (don't wring out)
    • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (from about 2 medium/large bananas)
