Banana Bread

This recipe is fast, easy and very basic.
  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
Optional: Walnuts

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • With a wooden spoon, mix melted 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 walnuts if you wish. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour.
  • As soon as I pull it out of the oven, I add brown sugar to the top just to give it a little extra sweetness.
  • Cool on a rack until you are able to remove from pan for easy slicing.
