banana bread

I just made my very first banana bread. Victory. I found the recipe on the internet. I've never been a fan of bananas, so I was not sure how good the recipe would be. I found it quite delicious and my husband who has always enjoyed banana bread was also very pleased. I thought I would share the recipe, just in case you're interested.

It tastes WONDERFUL when served with some melted Butter.


3 over-ripe bananas, mashed (I made 2 loaves and used 7 bananas)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup soft butter
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla (I used almost 3 tsps for 2 loaves - mmmm vanilla)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I didn't have any nuts, I'll try this next time)

1 hour 15 minutes 15 mins prep

1. In a large bowl mash your bananas until they are very pasty. (I just used the mixer and it worked great)
2. Add all other ingredients.
3. Mix well.
4. Pour all ingredients into a greased loaf pan.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the pan comes out clean.
