While you can make this pareve it really does taste best dairy.

  • 1 lb. brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 lb. butter or margarine
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 bananas
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup milk or non-dairy substitute
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup pecans

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the brown and white sugars with butter until very light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mash bananas and stir into the egg mixture.
  3. Sift flour with baking powder and salt. Mix milk and vanilla together. Add each to the egg mixture alternately. Stir in the pecans.
  4. Pour the batter into a 10-inch well-greased bunt pan.
