Banana bread recipe

I'd like to share a recipe that I've made so many times, that I don't look at my notes anymore. Banana bread is something I make almost every week. It is my son's favorite breakfast and he asks for it regularly. I made a couple of loaves earlier today to donate to a bake sale to raise money for aid to Haiti. I thought I had explained it this to my son, and he accompanied us to deliver the bread, but tonight at the dinner table he kept asking for it. Sometimes it's hard to know what he understands. Anyways, I'll probably be making it again later this week, but this weekend it was for a good cause. I like this recipe because it is so simple to make and it is so delicious. I hope you like it.

Banana bread

3 medium or large bananas or 4 small bananas
1.5 c all-purpose flour
3/4 c sugar (I use turbinado)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg, beaten
1/3 c melted butter
dash of salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mash up the bananas with a potato masher or a spoon.
  3. Add liquid ingredients (egg, butter, vanilla)
  4. Add dry ingredients, adding the flour last.
  5. In a buttered loaf pan, bake for 1 hour.

Yum! Now I have to make some for breakfast. The bananas we bought today are all green, though, so have to wait for them to ripen.

The bananas were ripe enough last night. We made your recipe, and by today half the loaf is already consumed! Loved it. Went and bought more bananas.
