When Life Gives Bad Bananas- Make Banana Bread
Banana Bread Recipe:
3-4 Smashed Ripe Bananas
1/3 Cup Melted Butter
2 Eggs, Beaten
1 Cup Sugar
1 Vanilla Bean (or 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract)
1 Teaspoon Baking soda
Pinch of Salt
1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour (we used unbleached)
Directions: Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix butter into mashed bananas, then mix in sugar, egg, and vanilla. Add the baking soda and salt. The flour goes in last. Pour the mixture into a buttered bread pan and bake for 1 hour. Remove and enjoy!
I had two slices for dinner and two slices for breakfast. The bread is filling and delicious, but watch out. Last night after happily devouring two slices I slipped into a banana-bread comma. You've been warned.
