om nom nom: Banana Bread
I loved when my Mom made us Banana Bread. A bit of butter on top, and yummy, delicious snack 🙂
I had a few mushy bananas left over from the week prior, so I decided to make Banana Bread.
- 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.
Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.
Add the flour last, mix.
Pour mixture into a buttered 4×8 inch loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack.
Remove from pan and slice to serve.
