Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Step 2

Butter 2 - 7 inch loaf pans -- I used 3 individual size loaf pans

Step 3

In a bowl of an electric mixer beat the sugar and bananas together on slow speed for 3-5 minutes or until smooth.

Step 4

In another bowl sift together the dry ingredients (flour -salt)

Step 5

In a measuring cup or bowl whisk together the eggs and milk.

Step 6

Add half of the flour mixture into the banana mixture and beat alternating with half of the egg mixture; repeat with remaining egg and flour mixtures. Stir in oil.

Step 7

Transfer mixture to prepared pans and bake for 50-60 minutes or until top is golden and skewer inserted into center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack for 5 minutes. Invert on wire racks to finish cooling. Turn to upright.

Step 8

In a small bowl heat the jam in a microwave oven on high for 20-30 seconds or until runny. Brush over top of warm loaves. Let cool completely before slicing.

The apricot glaze makes this unique and sticky in all the best ways and SOOOOO delicious! We loved this! I couldn't use my mini loaf pans or loaf pan so I used my Bundt pan and followed the directions as written and this was done in 55 minutes in my oven at 325°F. I will make again, using mini loaf pans (the disposable ones) and gift this bread around the holidays. It's really fabulous. Thanks, ellie! Made for Billboard Tag.
