Dont-Look-Any-Further Banana Bread

What you need: 

nonstick spray
1 tablespoon vinegar, divided
about 1/4 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/4 tablespoon baking soda
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 medium bananas, mashed

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease/spray a 9" square baking pan; set aside. Put one teaspoon vinegar in a liquid measuring cup and add enough soy milk to equal 1/4 cup; mix together and set aside.
2. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients together; set aside. In another bowl, beat oil, vanilla, and bananas. Gradually add in dry ingredients as well as the milk mixture. Beat until smooth.
3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes until brown on top and toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Serve warm, if desired.
Notes: You can add nuts or desired spices (like cinnamon). This can also be made in a standard size loaf pan (adjust cooking time accordingly).

SO HOW'D IT GO?

made this last night and did not have any vanilla, so I tried it with about  1 tsp of almond extract instead...DELICIOUS!!  And very easy!

I created a profile just to review this recipe! It's amazing how simple and tasty it is! I was surprised by how well it stayed together, I recommend it to anyone!

The only thing I changed was a reduction in sugar and rice milk instead of soya.

I used 3 bananas instead of 2, used whole wheat flour and reduced the sugar amount to 3/4 cup. I also baked it in a loaf pan for 50 minutes. It's a hit in our household!

Obviously I am alone on this, but I really did not like this recipe at all.
I found it way to bitter and the consistancy just wasn't right. I think it needs alot of tweaking (at least for me anyway).
Sorry.

Could your leavening agents be passed their prime? If so that might explain the taste and texture issues. Personally I love this banana bread recipe http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=5715.0 and the only chages I make are: I added a 1t. vanilla and 2t. cinnamon like someone else suggested and sprinkled a little sugar on top for an extra crunch and I do half brown half white sugar and I add an extra 1/4 cup of flour.

Sorry about that!!  It should be 1 teaspoon, NOT tablespoon.  I'm not sure how it got mixed up . . .  :)

Enjoy!!

Yum! however i had to bake it for like 50 min. I think because i used a sorta deep dish for it. But everyone loved it!
