Flower Pot Banana Bread

now... i've begun trying to make this three times, in three crock pots... the pot i bought is too big.
Tonite is the nite! I'm getting a smaller flower pot.

You can make banana bread IN a flower pot IN your crock pot!

here is the link:

i'm fascinated by this... but below i've copied the recipe, and i'll let you know how it turns out!


  • 2 cups flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup ripe bananas; mashed, 2 to 3 medium bananas
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 flower pot, terra cotta, about 6 1/2 inch size, to fit in crockpot


Wash a new flower pot well; grease then line with waxed paper, cutting to fit. Note: Make sure the flower pot fits in your crockpot, or use a 2-pound coffee can. Grease the waxed paper. Mix flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream butter, then add sugar, eggs and bananas, blending thoroughly. Combine milk and lemon juice to banana mixture, alternately add flour and milk mixture, then stir in nuts. Pour mixture into prepared flower pot and place in crockpot. Place liner in base. Cover with 2 to 3 paper towels. Cover crockpot and cook on low 5 to 6 hours. Do not lift lid to check on it until last hour.
