I am looking for a good recipe for banana bread that won't collapse up here at 8000 plus feet. I've tried multiple adjustments with little success. I'm thinking a nice warm slice with butter would be perfect by the fire today. Thanks!!

I have a recipe that sometimes works. I know I have to bake it longer. I eventually just went to muffins because it was easy to package in zip bags for travel and I never have an issue.

This gluten free version works at 9000ft. But I too prefer to make muffins instead (reduce baking time to 30-35 minutes).

Gluten-Free Orange Banana Bread
1 cup banana, mashed
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup orange marmalade
2 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp melted butter
¼ tsp salt
1 3/4 cups Gluten Free Baking Mix, such as Pamela’s or Arrowhead Mills
2/3 cup walnuts, chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a full sized loaf pan.
1. Mix together the banana, eggs, marmalade, sugar and melted butter.
2. Add the salt and gluten-free baking mix until well incorporated. Then fold in the chopped nuts.
3. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
4. Cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing.

I use this gluten free recipe. Works well at 8800'

Flourless toffee banana cake

You will need a 20cm/8in loaf tin; or a 20cm/8in round tin.

INGREDIENTS
· 115g/4oz butter, plus extra for greasing
· 115g/4oz soft brown sugar, dark or light
· 115g/4oz golden syrup
· 1 heaped tsp cinnamon
· 3 ripe bananas, roughly mashed
· 2 eggs, lightly beaten
· 250g/9oz ground almonds

METHOD
Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas 2. Grease a loaf tin with a little butter, line it with baking
paper and grease it once more.

Put the butter, sugar and syrup into a pan together, bring to the boil then simmer the mixture
for three minutes. It will have the appearance and thickness of a fudge sauce.

Allow to cool for about 10 minutes, then stir in the cinnamon and banana. Beat in the eggs,
one at a time, and fold in the almonds. The mixture is very wet and lumpy. It will not look as
if it could possibly set, but it will.

Bake for about 1 ½ -2 hours, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow
to cool — unless the greedy dive in first — and you will have a lovely, soggy cake that will
last for days.

Add 1/4 to 1/3 cup more flour
1/4 cup more water
Turn oven up another 25 degrees and
it should work at altitude.
Keep an eye on it because cooking time should be less.

Good advice for regular wheat flour.
Not needed for gluten-free blends.

Thank you, everyone, for the recipes and information! I don't have gluten free ingredients so I went for an attitude friendly recipe with 5 star reviews on Google. Best banana bread I've ever had. My little girl and I ate half the loaf all toasty in front of the fire!

Interestingly, I wound up baking it 20 minutes longer than specified. That could have been my oven though.

Thanks, again, everyone! Now outside for snow angels and a snow ball fight.
