Banana Bread

Sunday, January 5th, 2014

This is my recipe for banana bread…  I can’t remember where I found it, but it has been modified to use no oil.  Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not uber-healthy by any means.  It’s just my go to recipe.  😉

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour loaf pan.
2.  In mixer, mash bananas.  Add flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, baking powder, & baking soda.
Baking purists are wincing here I know…  You can mix all the dry ingredients together first before adding to bananas.  But I have been in a hurry (or lazy to dirty another bowl rather) and threw everything in the Kitchenaid and it worked out fine. 😉
3.  Add eggs and mix well.  Pour into loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes.

You can add other things in here like chocolate chips, walnuts, or pecans.  My family likes it plain so that is how I usually make it.  I have one in the oven as we speak that is half plain and half dotted with pecans…
