Banana Bread is delicious! I always forget how good it tastes until I have some. Then when I do, I revel in the taste, until I forget again and then discover it anew. This time around, I had some over-ripe bananas that seemed past their prime- Banana Bread is a great, healthy dessert to use those babies up!
This particular recipe is surprisingly low in sugar and butter- awesome! If you're feeling adventurous, add a little cinnamon, or nutmeg, or even some walnuts. This is just plain and simple, wholesome-tasting goodness.
Simple Banana Bread
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar (brown or white will do)
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Grease a 9x5 inch bread pan
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda & salt.
In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.
Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, aka gobble it up while it burns your mouth :)
