It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes our bananas get to the point they are past the point of being tasty. They’re not rotten, but are definitely over-ripe. Enter Banana Bread. This recipe is so simple, requires a mixing spoon, one half cup measuring cup, one bowl, a teaspoon, and a bread pan. Minimal ingredients, minimal dishes to do, and maximum delicious.
Based on Simply Recipes
- 2 over-ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups flour
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mash your bananas. This should be pretty easy, as they’ll be soft. If there are still small chunks remaining, it’s not a big deal. Mix in melted butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. Blend well.
4. Butter or spray a bread pan. Pour batter in pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, but check it as early as 40 minutes. The loaf is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
It’s best when it’s still a little warm from the oven, but will be good for 2-3 days in an air tight container. Good luck making it last that long!
