Banana Bread

During the week I had gone mad on the bananas, but very quickly got over them – meaning I had about 3 bananas left in the fruitbowl going brown.  Did a quick google for a banana bread recipe and hey presto – here tis.  Must say this is a very basic recipe and you would usually find some kind of nuts with a banana bread like walnuts which I think really makes the end product better.  But since I didn’t have any walnuts this did the trick;

Banana Bread Recipe

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

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.
