Simple Banana Bread Step by Step Pics Included
My girls love bananas but sometimes, our schedules get so busy that bananas aren’t the first snack grabbed and we end up with those lovely brown bananas sitting atop the microwave. Maybe it’s the pregnancy making me Betty Homemaker but I decided I wanted to find a simple and easy banana bread recipe to try!
- 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix butter into mashed bananas in a large bowl (or cooking pan in my case ;))
Mix in sugar, egg, cinnamon, and vanilla.
Sprinkle baking soda and salt over mixture. Mix in. (I did not take a picture of this because the amounts were so minimal, you wouldn’t have seen the difference)
Add flour last, mixing into mixture.
Pour mixture into a buttered 4×8 inch loaf pan.
Bake for one hour.
It’s a little bit darker than the recipes my mom and Grandma use but it’s still soo good!
