3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
It was easy, and I didn't need a mixer. It tasted great! I am filing this one in my recipe box. Easy peasy! I love being able to use up those bananas that Maranda won't touch once it has a spot on it. We also have a bunch of bananas (no, I mean literally a "bunch") on the tree right now that needs to be harvested soon. Then we get tons at once. I think I need a good banana pancake recipe!
Do you have any tried and true recipes that you could share?
How I wish I can have this for my morning breakfast.:DReplyDelete
My kids won't touch a banana with a spot on it, either.ReplyDelete
