Banana Bread

Today I'm going to take a break from the team and give you a recipe I just made for the first time. It turned out really good. My husband has even asked me to make it for him again.

Banana Bread Recipe-


2-3 very ripe bananas, peeled

1/3 cup melted butter

1 cup of sugar (can easily use 3/4 cup, or drop it down to 1/2 cup if you want it less sweet)

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.

Step 2: In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.

Step 3: Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.

Step 4: Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 5: Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly.)

Step 6: Enjoy!
