Dont-Look-Any-Further Banana Bread

Thursday was the Artichoke’s birthday. And man, did he get spoiled big time with gifts. Plus, my mom took him out for a fancy-shmancy dinner. Well, all wasn’t complete, because one thing he really wanted was a loaf of banana bread. Weird, right? But he loves the stuff!

He did specify that he wanted it to be vegan, because he doesn’t eat eggs. Thanks to a great recipe I found at, I was able to come through for him with one of the best banana breads I ever made or eaten. The ingredients may be slightly unconventional for a baked good, but you would think it was “authentic.”

Dont-Look-Any-Further Banana Bread


  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • soy milk
  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease/spray a 9 inch square baking pan; set aside. (From Macaroon – I used a 9″ loaf pan)
  2. Put one teaspoon vinegar in a liquid measuring cup and add enough soy milk to equal 1/4 cup; mix together and set aside.
  3. 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 soy milk mixture. Beat until smooth.
  4. Pour batter into pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes until brown on top and toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Serve warm, if desired (From Macaroon – the bake time for me was 45-50 min).

*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).
