9,000 Foot Elevation Ingredients

  • 12 ounces all-purposed flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon table salt
  • 3 ¼ ounces butter
  • 4 ¾ ounces brown sugar
  • 5 ounces eggs, beaten
  • 16 ounces mashed overripe bananas
  • 4 ounces buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

Sea level baking time per recipe: 60 to 65 minutes. Baking time at 9,000 feet: 60 minutes.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Stir in eggs, mashed bananas and buttermilk (for high altitude) until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

3. Bake in preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
