Easy Banana Bread
If you are looking for a really easy, really delicious Banana Bread recipe, this is it! I have several recipes for this oh so yummy Bread, that my little children go crazy over, but this is the one I use the most. It doesn't even require a blender!! Just mix it up in one bowl, and slap it in the loaf pan.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as we do.
- 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (or wheat flour)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 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 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
Note: Check bread half way through baking time, if you think it is brown enough, just lay a sheet of foil on top of it for remaining bake time.
