When Life Gives You Bananas

… make banana bread.

I’ve been using this recipe for years though I can’t quite remember where I got it from. I sometimes add chocolate bits, sometimes walnuts, sometimes both (as I have today) though it’s just as good without.

Banana Bread

 Banana Bread

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 large bananas (the riper, the better)

  • mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl
  • add eggs, melted butter and vanilla extract and mix
  • add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar
  • mix until all ingredients are well incorporated
  • add mixture to either a loaf pan or glass baking dish (I like to line the bottom and sides with parchment paper)
  • bake at 350 degrees F (or 175 degrees C)
  • 30 to 40 minutes if using a glass baking dish or up to an hour if using a loaf pan

If you try the recipe I’d love to hear how it turned out for you!
