Banana Bread

Wednesday, 24 September 2014

One of my friends gave me this quick and easy recipe. You can use it for breakfast or snacks, and alter it easily to your liking. I find this a great recipe since we always have over ripened bananas in the house.

  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas (I use 4)
  • 1/3 cup melted butter (1 3/4 butter sticks)
  • 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 (I use a potato masher for the 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 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve. (I also like to add walnut pieces and sometimes raisins to the mix.)
