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?

PERFECT! This came out really moist, fluffy and tasty.  Plus the ingredients are cupboard staples. I'm never gonna look for another recipe again!

Delicious! I ended up adding an extra banana and a tablespoon of cinnamon to the recipe as I think cinnamon goes good on just about anything. I also sprinkled brown sugar with more cinnamon on top which gave it a sweet crunchy crust.
Such a treat!

Sofa-king good! I made it twice after my friends and I dumpstered a bunch of bananas and didn't know what to do with them. Wowza was this delicious. I hit with all the omnivores in the house, it was crispy on the outside and verrry fluffy on the inside.  :)>>>

Just attempted this but used a bread pan and forgot to "Adjust Cooking Time Accordingly" so it came out pretty bad. BUT, the batter was DELICIOUS even with 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Will try this again next week for sure at 50 mins in a loaf pan.

Wow... so moist and delicious! I thought maybe a cup of sugar would make it too sweet, but it came out perfectly. I used a loaf tin and baked it for ~40 minutes. I'll be making this again and again!

fabulous, totally! I used a loaf tin and baked for 50 mins but with a layer of greaseproof paper on top for the last 20 mins. holds together beautifully, everyone loves it. will maybe try doing it with a hefty dose of ginger next time as it is that lovely jamaican ginger cake texture. thank you very much for this recipe, tis a real keeper!

Thanks a bunch (please excuse the banana pun humor) for this recipe! I like banana bread less sweet and with more of a banana taste so I used 3 bananas, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar, added 1/4 cup walnuts and sprinkled brown sugar on top before baking, turned out great. Rose well and very light. Will definitely make this again. :)

so, i'm snacking on this recipe as i'm typing this... i used whole wheat flour, and as suggested in the comments i cut the sugar back a bit and used 3 bananas.  i thought 2 tablespoons of baking powder to be a bit excessive, so i cut it in half.  still rose and turned out relatively fluffy, even with whole wheat flour.  for the couple of people that complained about the bitter taste, you can use lemon juice instead of vinegar to curdle your soymilk.  i used almond milk because i prefer to use less soy and discovered almond doesn't curdle as well as soy - must have something to do with the fat content.  this recipe made superb muffins, and will be a very welcome breakfast treat for myself at my very vegan un-friendly bakery job. :-)
